For the fourth year in a row, Cartier will team with Art Basel Miami Beach from December 2nd to 5th, 2010, this time to showcase a space designed by renowned Japanese filmmaker, comic and TV presenter Beat Takeshi Kitano.
In keeping with the house’s strong commitment to contemporary art, Cartier hosted Kitano’s exhibition Gosse de peintre at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris from March to September this year. The idea behind that exhibition will continue in Miami, as Kitano, inspired by childhood, has created a space with his drawings which visitors, both children and adults alike, are invited to color according to their whims.
A Gosse de peintre kit inspired by Kitano and made by Cartier will be sold via auction. All proceeds will go to charity.
