Art Café London is pleased to announce Vanity Unfair, art exhibition showcasing 30 Italian artists and their interpretation of vanity for March 2014.
On the wave of the success obtained in Italy, Art Café London brings this international event to London in the striking neoclassical venue of the Crypt Galley in St Pancras.
Vanity Unfair wants to represent the vanity in all its shapes and contradictions, investigating from its iconic to its social ambivalence. Considered as a form of self-idolatry and an intense belief in yourself that valorises the best you, and from which none of us can be told to be immune, vanity represents the engine of our actions, our attitudes, or an unconscious demand for self and social recognition. This immodest Narcissus silently inhabiting our souls makes us also deeply annoyed by the others vanity or even presumption of being able to play an unfairly game, for which the rules are only applied to others and not to ourselves.
In this edition of the International Exhibition of Contemporary Art with the motto "When the material regenerated itself like art", we would like to give our winning artists of the Italian edition the new task of interpreting and vanity using their creativity and sensitivity to unravel all its ambiguity in the contemporary society.
Through any expression, meaning, and the use of any type of material Vanity unfair wants to amuse its public with a variegated selection of art, painting, photos, installations, and music performances exalting the different artists' connotations of vanity.
Despite Vanity may be an unfair companion, Art Café London will fairly host Desperate Artwives contributing to their social purposes, and Greo Photo with his special performance Vanity Chair Experience, involving the spectator for an unconventional experience.
