The exhibition Chus Burés: a Dialogue between Art and Design, organized by the Marlborough Gallery, will afford an opportunity to discover some unique art jewels made in collaboration with the designer Chus Burés. Its prime aim will be to show that this very special and remarkable form of "ready-to-wear" art is the subtly precious fruit of an encounter between the artist's inspiration and the designer's savoir-faire.

In this first exhibition of art jewellery, the Marlborough Gallery proposes not merely to highlight the outstanding teamwork between Chus Burés and contemporary artists of high repute but to set up a visual dialogue between design pieces and works of art. Thus works by Getulio Alviani, Louise Bourgeois, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Sérvulo Esmeraldo, Carmen Herrera, Julio Le Parc, Macaparana, François Morellet, Marie Orensanz, Santiago Sierra, Nicolas Schöffer, Jesús Rafael Soto, Luis Tomasello and Jacques Villeglé will also be on show. This exhibition clearly proclaims the importance of artists cultivating this dialogue between Art and Design in their work. For the Marlborough Gallery it is also a chance to present artists who have never previously exhibited within its walls.


An original and elegant layout will enable visitors to appreciate Chus Burés' flair for switching from one stylistic tendency to another: the display of jewels will be in the shape of an arabesque linking the gallery's three main rooms together like a pearl necklace. The first room, entitled “Perception”, will feature sixteen jewels made in collaboration with the kinetic artists Yaacov Agam, Getulio Alviani, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Horacio Garcia-Rossi, Julio Le Parc, François Morellet, Nicolas Schöffer, Francisco Sobrino, Jesús Rafael Soto and Luis Tomasello. Nine jewels made with the geometric abstract artists Sérvulo Esmeraldo, Carmen Herrera, Macaparana and César Paternosto will be presented nearby under the heading "Absolute". The second room, dubbed "Allegory", will be devoted in its entirety to Miquel Barceló and will contain sixteen jewels. The third room, named "Subversion", will bring together fourteen jewels crafted with input from Louise Bourgeois, Kcho, Marie Orensanz, Carlos Pazos, Cinzia Ruggeri, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, Santiago Sierra and Jacques Villeglé.

An illustrated catalogue with a text by Domitille d’Orgeval, the exhibition's curator, will be published to accompany the exhibition.
