Danziger Projects has a clever attention-getter on for Miami this week: Kate Moss as Curator. The gallery is selling portfolios of the model’s favorite portraits of herself, according to the Telegraph:
Moss has been tied into the art world professionally and socially since she was asked to collaborate with a series of YBAs (Young British Artists), for an art issue of British Vogue 10 years ago. ‘Through that I became friends with some of them. A lot of them, really. And, you know, we’d see each other out, hang out at parties and what have you, and over the years they’d ask me to do odd projects’.
Moss has been called on as an artist’s muse several times since, famously posing naked and pregnant for Lucien Freud and as a contorted ‘Sphinx’ for Marc Quinn.
Moss has collaborated with Danziger Projects on the 30 limited edition portfolios, which are priced at $75,000 each -a figure which is expected to rise as each set is sold.
