What started out as a concept idea between the Uberto Gucci of the famed fashion house, his business partner Tatjana Labato, and Miami’s celebrated artist, Noel, has resulted in an international artistic exchange that will premiere in a duo of events. Tagged La Collaborazione, the exhibition is viewed as an homage to the history of the Gucci family. Noel introduces new techniques that evolved into a three-dimensional effect, merging the classical with the contemporary. Also in the exhibition will be the first furniture piece created by Uberto Gucci and Miami’s Deco One designer Aldo Conigliaro on which Noel has painted images related to “La Collaborazione.” The event launches at Miami Beach Botanical Garden with Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower’s presentation of the Key to the City to Uberto Gucci. The festivities continue from 9 to 11 p.m. at The Raleigh Hotel, hosted by The Brilla Group’s Richard Cotter, and Adam Cohen.
