PROJECT ROOM #10
As Paris hosts its 2nd edition of Paris+ by Art Basel, India Mahdavi invites Mexico City based design gallery, AGO Projects, to take over the Project Room - a part of the rue Las Cases ecosystem that seeks to experiment with diverse forms of domesticity by reaching out and giving a voice to a specific part of the world. In doing so, the Project Room acts a portal - with a direct shop window connecting us to a fragment of the globe.
AGO Projects is a design driven practice and designer representation space started by Rudy F. Weissenberg and Rodman Primack. Based in the energizing creative capitals of Mexico City and New York, AGO Projects is committed to incubating and promoting exceptional design voices. They work together with artists and designers to realize personal projects of various scales while actively enhancing international alliances and opportunities. They believe in the power of good design as an agent of positive transformation. We encourage the hand made and support artists and designers with a heightened level of social and environmental consciousness that strive for a more equitable society. Their show ¡HOLA, PARÍS! will feature: chamula hecho a mano / fabien capello / myungjin kim / mono rojo / mt objects / niños heroes / pedro & juana / ryan belli / tony marsh
