Blanket Stories, Generations, Acknowledgement
A collaboration between Loro Piana and Marie Watt
To coincide with the opening of Loro Piana’s new Meatpacking District store, this original exhibition – titled Companion Species: Blanket Stories, Generations and Acknowledgment – features three unique sculptures by the artist Marie Watt.
These artworks have been exclusively commissioned by Loro Piana, as a collaborative reflection on community and environmental stewardship, generational respect, family history and the myriad symbolic meanings of loved – and lived-in – textiles.
Companion Species: Blanket Stories, Generations and Acknowledgment is on display from December 14th, 2020 to January 31st, 2021 at 3 Ninth Avenue, New York City.
