Global luxury brand Valmont has just announced the opening of their first New York City art exhibition: The Elegant Symmetry of the Gorilla. This exhibit, running from October 5-21, will present a collection of thirty works designed and created by Didier Guillon, President & Artistic Director of Valmont Group and Foundation Valmont, in association with a selection of talented artists. 

Inspired by a visit to the Berlin Zoo in 2017, Didier fell under the charm of Ivo, the famous gorilla and zoo mascot. As an art connoisseur, Didier envisioned an alternative destiny for this elegant animal with his angular and resolutely cubist silhouette. As a result, Didier designed a series of artistic tributes to evoke the quest of a gorilla in pursuit of happiness using different medias, in multiple dimensions, creatively juxtaposing various materials.

Art is a fundamental pillar of the Valmont Group and plays a role in every initiative promoting their motto ‘When Art Meets Beauty.’ ‘The Elegant Symmetry of the Gorilla’ is an itinerant exhibition that will travel around the world to Munich and Berlin in 2019 after debuting in New York this year. 

To celebrate the exhibition, Valmont has partnered with One Drop, an international non-profit organization dedicated to engaging communities to bring sustainable access to safe water. During the months of October and November 2018, Valmont will donate $10 to One Drop for every product sold at Saks Fifth Avenue New York and Spa Valmont at Plaza Athénée NYC. Valmont will also donate 100% sales of two artworks from the exhibition to One Drop. 

Location: 393 Broadway New York, New York 10013
