Passion Points: Arts/Culture
Art collectors Steve and Chiara Rosenblum (he is the founder of e-commerce website Pixmania) began collecting African masks in the late 1990s. In 2005 their interest turned towards contemporary art and five years later they opened a 15,000 square foot public exhibition space called Rosenblum Collection & Friends (rosenblumcollection.fr) in a former photographic lab in Paris’s 13th arrondissement.
Chiara curates exhibitions for the beautifully renovated space out of the couple’s private collection, which now focuses on works by established and emerging living artists including: Antoine Aguilar, Aaron Curry, Mathew Day Jackson, Barbara Kruger, Sterling Ruby, and Christopher Wool. The next show, Crossing Mirrors, opens on October 18, 2012.
