This past March was the Tiffany X Whitney Biennial curated by Christopher Y. Lew and Mia Locks. The exhibition, which took place at Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue store in New York City, consisted of works by five artists who participated in the Whitney Biennial: Harold Mendez, Shara Hughes, Ajay Kurian, Raúl de Nieves and Carrie Moyer. Each artist worked with a Tiffany designer to blend Tiffany’s style with a contemporary work of art. Mendez created a sterling silver death mask. Hughes painted landscapes on a bone China pitcher which rotated under a light, allowing for different views of the pitcher to be illuminated at different times of the day. Kurian made sterling silver card holders with intricate designs and phrases, such as the word ‘PSYCHO.” Nives work consisted of detailed etched glass and Moyer made an installation for the front window.
