MvVO ART AD ART SHOW 2022 Opening Reception & Winners Presentation Hosted by Havas New York

MvVO ART, creator of AD ART SHOW, held an Advertising Industry Opening Reception hosted by Havas New York in downtown Manhattan. The reception was the official kickoff to the AD ART SHOW 2022 going on May 1-31, 2022, at Westfield World Trade Center inside the Oculus.

Many artists from this year’s show, as well as some from previous years, attended the winners presentation, saw previews of the show on various screens, and enjoyed wine sponsored by Havas New York and Annex88 client Stags’ Leap Winery, one of Treasury Wine Estates’ properties, and hors d’oeuvres. Following the reception, guests were invited to the Oculus to watch the AD ART SHOW 2022 on the monumental screens.

Notable attendees included: Maria van Vlodrop, Laura Maness, Dan Lucey, Laura Skoler, Isaac Aden, Eric Shiner, Chanell Angeli, Parme Marin, Layla Nami, Lindsay Stein, Will Lewis, and Loris van Vlodrop.

During the reception, MvVO ART announced that Chanell Angeli had won first place in the AD ART SHOW 2022. Chanell Angeli received a Specialty Clio in Contemporary Art from the MvVO ART jury of collectors. Her work as a mixed-media artist of Caribbean descent draws on her heritage as well as her interest in the relationship between poetry and visual art to create immersive experiences that explore themes of the divine feminine and the African Diaspora. Her work is full of emotional depth and intelligence.

Parme Marin and Layla Nami were also named winners of the 2022 show. Parme Marin explores “La Peau” (the skin) by creating works of art out of leather, hair, and wood. Layla Nami’s vibrant imagery is influenced by Persian folktales, medieval tapestries, and illuminated manuscripts.

“The talent represented in the 2022 selection of 120 artists is extraordinary. When people comment on the diversity of our artists, I can only say that this is organic and reflects the creative people with roots in advertising and commercial design. The diversity of artistic talent is on display. Discover them daily on MvVO ART’s Instagram (@mvvoart)” said Maria van Vlodrop, MvVO ART CEO and Founder. In 2020, Maria van Vlodrop was named as a “Cultural Shaper” in Adweek’s annual Creative 100 List.

In 2018, MvVO ART debuted AD ART SHOW at Sotheby’s New York. The 2022 edition, now in its fifth year, brings art directly to people by converting an advertising platform—the massive digital screens at Westfield World Trade Center inside the Oculus in New York—into a public gallery space for an entire month. From May 1 to 31, 2022, the iconic Oculus, designed by Santiago Calatrava, will be transformed into an inspiring contemporary art destination.

The artists who are taking part have backgrounds in advertising/design or other related fields. They are following in the footsteps of Andy Warhol, Rene Magritte, and Edward Hopper, among others. Historically, some artists have made the leap, but the barriers remain; and the MvVO ART/AD ART SHOW opens the doors for these talented artists with direct connections to the art world in a celebration of artistic discovery open to all art lovers. It serves as a link between the art world and the advertising world.

In keeping with the historical connections between Art and Advertising, MvVO ART/AD ART SHOW includes influential figures in both contemporary Art and Advertising on the initial Selection Committee and Jury of Collectors. Laura Skoler, Board of Directors, New Museum, NYC, and the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Drawing Foundation, Paris chairs both the Selection Committee and the Jury. Eric Shiner, a noted curator and formerly the Director of the Andy Warhol Museum, serves on the selection committee. Demonstrating their support and enthusiasm for the artists in advertising, Pum Lefebure, Co-founder & Chief Creative Officer, Design Army and Nils Leonard, Creative Founder, Uncommon Creative Studio also serve on the selection committee
