´Love in the Sky - London´ 18th October 2008 @ The Gherkin The motto of ´Love in the Sky´ is to promote local and international interdisciplinary artistic talent and to create synergies and network opportunities for both artists and sponsors of the arts in the most iconic and privileged buildings in world.
´Love in the Sky - London´ Love in the Sky - London is the first part of this project, which intends to bring innovative art/fashion/design/music concepts into iconic buildings around the world under the common theme of Love. In this particular occasion the chosen city is London, the chosen building is Fosters Swiss Re building the Gherkin and the chosen time is during Frieze Week in October, a week in which London becomes the art capital of the world.
´Love in the Sky - London´ ´Love in the Sky´ is a creation of award-winning composer and sound artist Toni Castells, who will perform his new ground- breaking interactive performance in this opening event. Several proposals from different artists and fashion designers are being reviewed at the moment in order for them to also be part of ´Love in the Sky – London´ ´Love in the Sky´ is intended to become a worldwide hub where international and local talent from the world of art, music, fashion and design gets in touch with brands/sponsors/other networks which can ´use´ art as a channel in which to target this cool/young/exciting/arty audience from London and other major cities in the world that have become the new tastemakers and trendsetters of choice.
´Love in the Sky - London´ In exchange, artists, musicians and designers can benefit from these resources/networks/connections in order to expand and develop their practice and to promote and showcase their work to a wider audience. In a scenario where institutional support for the creative arts is weakening significantly in most developed countries, the need to create new platforms in which these synergies can be nurtured and developed has become an imperative necessity. The target audience for the event is a hand-picked sophisticated audience which may include the current movers and shakers of the art, music, design and fashion world on an international level. Holding the event during Frieze Week makes this a much easier task.
´Love in the Sky - London´ The Love in the Sky team is in the process of selecting the right sponsors that would like to be associated with the brand ´Love in the Sky´.
