After Carhartt WIP and Slam Jam teamed up to release the “Minute Man Service” capsule, founders of the two labels have joined together once again to open a new space for art, design and fashion in Milan. Named Spazio Maiocchi, the space is in a 1000 square meter space that has been renovated and designed by Milan- and Shanghai-based firm Andrea Caputo and is intended to “shape new cultural experiences.” Spazio Maiocchi will host the exhibition space and studio for KALEIDOSCOPE — a Milan-based contemporary art magazine and studio — and Plusdesign, a design gallery and furniture brand.
To launch the space, each of the studios will host an exhibition. KALEIDOSCOPE will exhibit works by Darja Bajagić, a New York-based artist who has created new series of paintings and collages, and Japanese airbrush painter Harumi Yamaguchi, who will be the first person to take over a new billboard in the space’s courtyard. Plusdesign, on the other hand, will launch the first instalment of a new travel series titled Rug Trip I that has been curated with P.A.M.‘s Misha Hollenbach. The exhibition space opens at 6PM on October 11 and the first exhibitions will run until November 25.
