Design meets art in “Consort Loves Tappan,” a collaborative exhibit worked into Consort’s collection of custom furniture, decor and vintage items, with artwork curated by Tappan Collective from emerging artists including Lani Trock, Brian Merriam, Emily Knecht, Isaac Zoller, Marc Gabor, David Kitz and Annelie Vandendael. The works are currently on view in the space and available for purchase online.
“We decided to invite one of our favorite art resources, Tappan, to curate our space and shine light on the conversation between art and interior design,” says Mat Sanders, Consort founder and creative director. “You’re missing out on an amazing design opportunity if art is treated as an afterthought.”
“Art and design are different genes in the same family and one cannot exist without the other,” explains Chelsea Neman of Tappan. “Both are symbolic of the styles of our time, and when done well, are perpetually representative of aesthetic, meaning and intent. At the moment, there is a lot of awareness of art and design and their roles within our aesthetic world. Where does art end and design begin? The relationship between art and design is truly an exercise in balance; they not only complement each other but they rely on each other.”
The exhibit will run for eight weeks at Consort’s Los Angeles store.
