With a well-timed exhibition, Galerie Maximillian boosts Aspen’s international arts clientele.
Duplex Etching: Blue, Pink by Ian Davenport, 2014.
This January, Galerie Maximillian will mount a second annual exhibition to coincide with an influx of international visitors. Thirty percent of Aspen skiing company visitors hail from international destinations each winter, with Brazilians routinely making up one of the largest groups—especially in January. Mila Mayer, who splits her time between São Paulo, Geneva, and Snowmass, will act as both guest curator and exhibiting artist for a show (beginning January 14) featuring her new works, along with five contemporary British artists: Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Ian Davenport, Julian Opie, and Sarah Morris, all of whom have exhibited throughout Brazil. “The art scene in Aspen has been increasingly international over the last several years,” says Galerie Maximillian owner Albert Sanford, “especially with the opening of the new Aspen Art Museum and the Powers Art Center in Carbondale. It seems only fitting to highlight this again with an event to celebrate international visitors curated by one of their own.” 602 E. Cooper Ave., 970-925-6100
