Danh Vo Brings Casa Dragones to the Venice Biennale
Special Editions for Special Exhibitions
Casa Dragones is thrilled to announce our collaboration with the internationally acclaimed artist Danh Vo, in two Special Edition bottles designed especially for two unique exhibitions surrounding the 2015 Venice Biennale. Both Special Edition bottles feature calligraphy directed by the artist, and executed by the artist’s father, Phung Vo, whose elegant calligraphy is prevalent in Vo’s art.
Dinner Hosted by Francois Pinault
To celebrate the Special Edition and the exhibition opening, Casa Dragones Joven was poured at the sensational dinner hosted by Francois Pinault in honor of the artists and curators. The dinner began with glasses of Casa Dragones being served at the magnificent Hotel Bauer, where Mexican craftsmanship met Italian sophistication while overlooking the incomparable views of the Punta Della Dogana. Late night revelry continued as artists, collectors and newly-inaugurated European tequila lovers enjoyed their first time with Casa Dragones.
For this first Special Edition, 150 Casa Dragones Joven bottles have been hand-inscribed with the exhibition title, Slip of the Tongue, uniting each untitled piece under the umbrella of Vo’s curated collection, in collaboration with curator, Caroline Bourgeois. Special Edition bottles are available in Punta Della Dogana – Pinault Collection museum store. They are also available exclusively through Casa Dragones Conciege.

The origin of our collaboration is both remarkable and fitting. Danh Vo, who was born in South Vietnam and later settled in Denmark with his family in 1979, has recently chosen to reside in Mexico City, and shares a passion for Mexico that extends to Casa Dragones. We are honored and thrilled to be part of the artistic curation of the Venice Biennale 2015.
