Italian designer Giambattista Valli proposes A10 as an essay on the topic “what is beauty?” with contributions from many contemporary artists, photographers and influential style icons including Louise Bourgeois, Nan Goldin, Chiara Clemente, Lucio Fontana, David Hicks, Richard Avedon, Slim Aarons, Iman and the late Corinne Day.
Join Valli on his inspiring journey through a raw underworld of beauty, juxtaposed by a glamorous and decadent bygone era.
“Take my hand and I will walk you through the fragments of my encounters with beauty, which time and time again have brought me to new doors, to unknown rooms and landscapes.”
