The Loewe Foundation and Jonathan Anderson present...

The LOEWE FOUNDATION presents the third exhibition in its Chance Encounters series, bringing together artists from various disciplines in order to explore unexpected conversations. This year works by Sara Flynn, Richard Smith and Lionel Wendt are presented within the unique space of the LOEWE Miami Design District store, which was designed around a monumental 18th century granary from Portugal. Made from stone and wood, its presence within the building encapsulates LOEWE’s celebration of past, present and future, and provides a resonant setting for the work of these three artists.
Shadows and the interplay of forms are the threads which tie together the works in this
third exhibition, as well as an enduring focus on craftsmanship which is central to the ethos of the LOEWE FOUNDATION. Anderson has chosen three artists, working across the diverse mediums of fabric sculpture, ceramic and photography and spanning the 1930s to the present day.
