SMART Festival 2015
Art and events in San Miguel de Allende
Each summer, our hometown of San Miguel de Allende hosts SMART, a dynamic and visionary art festival featuring art exhibitions, culinary events, and art tours. This year, as the featured event Casa Dragones hosted a talk at La Casa Dragones, where Patrick Charpenel, internationally renowned curator and former director of Museo Jumex, discussed the life and work of acclaimed artist Danh Vo.
During the event, guests including Betsabee Romero, Bruce James, Santiago Carbonell, Mireya Escalante and Ricardo Garrido sipped on Casa Dragones Joven while learning about the illustrious career of Danh Vo, whose recent work includes the curation of the famed Venice 2015 exhibit Slip of The Tongue and the installation of the Danish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2015, entitled mothertongue.
During this event, the Danh Vo Special Edition of Casa Dragones Joven was also introduced. Vo designed these special edition bottles especially for the two unique exhibitions surrounding the 2015 Venice Biennale. Casa Dragones Joven 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.
Special Edition bottles are available exclusively for sale at the Museum Shop in Punta Della Dogana, Venice, at the Danish Pavilion, Venice and participating galleries representing Vo’s work. For more information, contact [email protected]
