Friends, food and a good conversation. A simple and enduring combination of ingredients made unique by what our guests infuse the evening with. As an ice breaker to Selections’ latest project, we have invited friends to toast Selections’ Viewing Rooms, our new collecting series made up of frequent online shows that combine works for sale presented by galleries and artists from around the world. Our first show is dedicated to the countless stories we have exchanged with these brilliant individuals, talking about art and other stories.
