The Purple Residence is opening to everyone this Thursday at La Cité Radieuse in Marseille! It’s open every week from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm from Thursday to Sunday in the Jardin d’Hiver on the 3rd floor. It’s the only way to buy some Peter Shire’s paintings, ceramics and furnitures he did exclusively for the Purple Residence during his stay this spring, inspired by Le Corbusier architectural masterpiece. It’s the first time Purple is opening an artist residence devoted to the connection between art and fashion and to they way we live, in a building defined by Le Corbusier as a « living machine ». The show is all about the first exclusive collaboration between the American artist Peter Shire and iconic Florentine house Emilio Pucci led by its artistic director Camille Miceli. See you there this summer!
