Hunter & Gatti launch HG Issue in New York

We are proud to announce that HG Issue was officially launched yesterday in the Openhouse gallery, New York, with an accompanying exhibition entitled “The Series”, featuring Hunter & Gatti’s recent work. HG Issue is the latest adventure of the New York based creative duo in the editorial world, aiming to connect art with fashion and serve as a platform for emerging talents from all over the world. The exhibition included a collection of their celebrity portraits featuring Bruno Mars, Poppy Delevingne, Rebecca Fergusson and Douglas Booth, alongside acrylic paintings over photograph canvases from editorials for Vogue and Flaunt. It also showcased exclusive material from “Carne”, HG Issue monographic about meat, with embroidered photographs from Inge Jacobsen and brain sculptures from Emilio Garcia. Meat inspired projections set the tone of the night, transforming the gallery into an extravaganza of light and sound.

The launch was hosted by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, charming everybody with her contagious energy and unparalleled style, and featured music by The Misshapes. Notable guests included Genevieve Jones, Leigh Lezark, Shala Monroque, Mia Moretti, Dan Murphy, Dirk Standen, Dan Ragone (Interview), Michael Barcley, Kelly Bensimon, Corey Kennedy, Cleo Wade and Matthew Woodhouse.

The overpainted series of Hunter & Gatti, featuring Naty Chabanenko, Ziyi Zhang and Gertrud Hegelund, incorporated perfectly the immediateness of photography with the three dimensional texture of a painting. Hence, something as temporary as a fashion editorial, with its clearly commercial appeal, was turned into something completely different and original. This is the first exhibition of Hunter & Gatti in the USA and it was held with great success, giving us an idea of what we are about to expect from the creative duo. The exhibition will be on show until November 21, from 9 am to 9 pm, at Openhouse gallery (201 Mulberry St, New York), so if you missed the opening reception you are still on time to discover HG Issue and the amazing work of Hunter & Gatti. You can’t’ say you haven’t been warned!
