Guest Galleries —a new series of installations in Faena District curated by Faena Art— will launch on Friday, February 15th with DotFiftyone as the first guest of this series.

The gallery will take over a space on the ground-floor of Faena Bazaar and will be in-residence during the same time period, featuring works by Juan José Cambre, Graciela Hasper and Gonzalo Fuenmayor. After DotFiftyone, a new guest gallery will take over the space, and work in collaboration with Faena Art to select an artist to be commissioned for a new site-specific mural.
Opening Night. February 15, 6 -10 pm.
This ongoing and rotating series is free and open to the public, and the galleries in residence will be open Monday – Saturday, noon until 8 pm and on Sundays from noon until 6 pm.
February's Featured Designers
These female designers are crafting beautiful clothes and jewelry for powerful yet feminine muses.
Isabel Pedemonte and Chipi Tornos are two friends who came together to design modern loungewear inspired by their beautiful seaside surroundings in Asturias, Spain. Each collection reflects a “brin de folie” stemming from their obsession with fabrics, prints and textures that translate into lightweight and versatile garments from kaftans and robes to nightgowns and lingerie. They strive to “envelop the woman who wears them in a world of reverie, sensuality, style and elegance,” the pair told Spanish newspaper, La Nueva España. Delicacy is the thread that connects all of their collections, crafting pieces with colorful patterns and feminine fabrics that adapt to the body like cotton mousselines, satin, silk and lace. At the end of the day, the designers are striving not only to create beautiful garments that “capture the glitter of the instants that have captivated us,” but a lifestyle for the modern woman.
Perhaps the perfect accessory for a flowing kaftan is a pair of droplet diamond earrings or a sapphire ring from fine jewelry designer Graziela Kaufman. The Brazilian artist’s gemstone designs are a favorite among celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, and Jennifer Lopez, and regularly grace the pages of high-style magazines like Harper’s Bazaar to Modern Luxury. Trained by her grandfather, Kaufman carries generations of know-how when it comes to handcrafting every piece and sourcing gems from all over Brazil. She has spent years traveling to mining towns throughout her native country to learn the fascinating history behind every stone, which has ultimately inspired the imaginative designs of her exalted creations.
