When we said an evening dripping in colour, we weren’t exaggerating. Opening night was a huge success! Almost 400 guests enjoyed the transformative and trippy world of Carnovsky on Thursday night last week, a huge thank you to all who joined us. We are so proud of the incredible work delivered by Sylvia and Francesco, the walls moved between worlds dazzling our guests and spawning a torrent of Instagram-able moments. The Italian duo is back home now after a week of interviews, filming, photoshoots and parties, all of which you can find below.
RGB: A Voyage has depth beyond its 2D images; as you watch the work change under flooded red, blue, green or white light different time periods, creatures and anatomy appear and disappear. Digitally rendered by the duo, historical images are coloured and layered in specific order, allowing them to come to life and transform before your eyes. The marriage of analogue and digital has never been so beautiful and we are very grateful hosts.
It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyways, if you haven’t seen this incredibly immersive exhibition, you need to get over to the Nuvango Gallery; and check it out. Be sure to use the hashtag #CarnovskyXNuvango if you post about the exhibit for a chance to be featured in an upcoming social media roundup! The gallery is open along with our flagship retail store Monday through Wednesday 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, Thursday through Saturday 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
And to take the magic home with you limited edition prints are available for purchase both framed and unframed which include a set of red, green and blue coloured glasses to enjoy the full breadth of the artwork. We also have launched our Carnovsky Collection of clothing along with a limited edition circle skirt (which also transform with the lights or coloured glasses!) as well as pillows, cards, some very limited edition benches, a fabulous couture gown designed by Nuvango Fashion Designer Hillary Sampliner, and the stunning 6’6” acrylic Vesalio piece – all handmade right here in Toronto, with love from Milan.
Be sure to check out what Vice had to say about RGB: A Voyage here and stay tuned for the full interview between Nuvango Artist Relations Manager Brian Dunn and Carnovsky, online soon.
