Tiffany & Co. has announced the opening of a new exhibition opening in Shanghai celebrating the legendary jeweller’s greatest creative masterpieces.
“Vision & Virtuosity” was conceived as a journey through history and is billed as ‘an immersive view into the acclaimed house that honors its past while revealing the importance of this unique history.
Alessandro Bogliolo, chief executive officer of Tiffany & Co, said: “‘Vision & Virtuosity’ is a tribute to Tiffany & Co., which has stood for masterful craftsmanship and innovative design since Charles Lewis Tiffany founded his company in New York City in 1837.”
“These two values—vision and virtuosity—lie at the heart of Tiffany & Co. and this exhibition represents the best of our brand.”
The company says that the exhibition’s installations contextualise the brand’s trailblazing moments, documenting the numerous “Tiffany firsts” such as the introduction of the modern engagement ring, the Tiffany® Setting.
Reed Krakoff, the brand’s chief executive officer, said: “There are many incredible objects in The Tiffany Archives that we draw inspiration from and we are constantly finding ways to reinvent and reinterpret them for our designs today.”
“With this exhibition, we honor the past and show how beauty and masterful craftsmanship are timeless and always relevant.”
The exhibition takes visitors through six chapters devoted to Tiffany & Co.’s history of excellence in design and craftsmanship.
It is slated to open to the public on September 23 and run through November 10, 2019 at the Fosun Foundation Shanghai.
Tickets will be available for purchase beginning in September, with all tickets sales benefitting the Fosun Foundation and its charitable programs.
