Louis Vuitton and Yana Peel hosted an “Art for Baby” opening reception on 18th January 2011 at Espace Louis Vuitton Hong Kong.
The “Art for Baby” exhibition brought together in celebration of the Asia launch of the highly-acclaimed book by the same name.
It showcases the 20th century’s most prolific painters from America, Europe and Asia, with works by Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Julian Ope and Takashi Murakami.
Chosen from among works by Kasmir Malevich, Paul Morrison, Bridget Riley and David Shrigley, each of whom is also featured in the Art for Baby book.
The book Art for Baby was conceived by Yana Peel on the basis of scientific evidence that when babies are first born, they can see colour but have not yet developed the ability to distinguish similar tones.
As a result, bold graphics along with monochromatic black and white contrasts provide them with the tools to nurture their visual skills, while at the same time introduce them to the world of art.
The Art for Baby exhibition opens on 19 January and continues until April 2011, with all book sales going to Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
