Pour chacune de ses expositions, la Galerie des Galeries propose des éditions en collaboration avec des artistes.

Et en 2019, elle réalise avec la maison d’édition We Do Not Work Alone, une commande spécifique autour du patrimoine des Galeries Lafayette : une collection d’objets usuels conçue par des artistes et produite par des entreprises témoins du savoir-faire français.

OBJETS USUELS | WE DO NOT WORK ALONE

Since 2015, WE DO NOT WORK ALONE designs everyday objects in collaboration with contemporary
artists. More than thirty objects have been created by the publishing house, implementing industrial or artisanal savoir-faire to produce projects of confirmed or emerging artists. WE DO NOT WORK ALONE was created with the desire to make a contribution to the old question of the links between art and life. This ambition comes from the desire to democratize art. More than a year ago, the
preparation of the Savoir Faire Savoir exhibition began, the Galeries Lafayette proposed a Carte Blanche to WE DO NOT WORK ALONE, to invite artists to work such as La Maîtrise and thus constitute a collection of usual objects edited in limited editions and made by French heritage companies.
The choice was : Alexandre & Florentine Lamarche-Ovize, Benoit Maire, Pascale Marthine Tayou and Marion Verboom, artists from various horizons, whose having in common a sensitivity to the decorative arts, to the question of the object and the everyday life. Then we found the companies whose savoir faire corresponded as well to the exhibition's intention and the project of the artist.
Savoir Faire Savoir exhibits the result of this dialogue fed for more than one year with the artists and
the companies (Faïencerie Georges from Nevers, Gilles Tavernier, Ferronier d’art, SIEGL, textile printing company, the manufacturer of garden furniture Fermob, and the stone carver Andesite). A dialogue accompanied by WE DO NOT WORK ALONE and Galeries Lafayette for a contemporary interpretation of the Maîtrise.
