My Paper Sunglasses is an art initiative developed and curated by Otávio Santiago. He came up with the whole manifestation starting from the notion that sunglasses are a portal through which we see the world; they shape the way we see things as much as they influence the way we are perceived.
An exciting fusion of art, portraiture and fashion; the exhibition reveals an intimate insight into the minds and identities of artists from different areas invited to intervene over paper lenses. Having toyed with this concept for a while, My Paper Sunglasses aims to give sunglasses a new function. From primarily functional to primarily decorative; these exquisite items are about to become a form of visual adornment.
Extra goodies: a silent auction will also be held up until August 21st, when the winning bids for the one-of-a-kind pieces will be announced at the show’s Finissage.
We’re leaving to discover the rest of the participating artists on the project’s website.*
