Tiffany Collaborates with Artists from the 2017 Whitney Biennial for Windows

Last Thursday, the Tiffany & Co. window collaboration with artists from the 2017 Whitney Biennial was fêted.

Tiffany Artistic Officer Reed Krakoff and Whitney Director Adam D. Weinberg hosted a cocktail reception for the five artists who participated, Harold Mendez, Ajay Kurian, Raúl de Nieves, Carrie Moyer, and Shara Hughes. Each were commissioned to create a unique window displaying object editions, now on view at Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue flagship.

This is an unprecedented partnership, with the artist’s chosen by the biennial’s curators, Mia Locks and Christopher Y. Lew. Kurian is behind 10 limited-edition sterling silver business card holders etched with the word “psycho.” Moyer created a sterling silver stippled pendant (also an edition of 10). Mendez collaborated with Tiffany artisans to make a pre-Columbian death mask (edition of five). De Nieves worked on an engraving of two figures and a child on a sterling silver box. Hughes reproduced her landscape paintings onto a bone china pitcher.

The Whitney Biennial opens this week to the public on March 17, and is on view through June 11.
