Rather than being a traditional bricks and mortar gallery, LUMAS is designed to give visitors the feeling of being in an art collector’s home; showcasing its art in room’s that mimic living rooms, kitchens and libraries.
I love this idea and clearly I’m not the only one, with the Berlin-based concept now having 40 galleries across the world! And now it’s coming to Australia, with the next site popping up in Melbourne’s Richmond this July.
[contextly_sidebar id=”Co2TThKdwFVEXFoBPoWCTzLytnnHeExx”]Boasting a unique and authentic range of art – from photography and digital art to contemporary design pieces, the LUMAS gallery aims to make the art market more accessible for regular consumers. Combined with its online store, the Richmond space will offer more than 1800 pieces, all coming with a Certificate of Authenticity.
“LUMAS offers contemporary photographic editions that are expertly chosen, captivatingly produced and above all, affordable,” explains Eugenia Wilson, the mastermind behind LUMAS Australia. “The high quality is guaranteed and many of the pieces come hand signed and in limited editions of 75-150. These editions enable LUMAS to offer art at affordable prices, starting from just $200.”
The new LUMAS Australia gallery will open with an impressive range of limited edition pieces, including best sellers Werner Pawlok and Bernhard Lang as well as Arthur Elgort’s refreshing photos of Kate Moss from the mid-nineties. The gallery will open on Saturday 4 July and is located at 597 Church Street, Richmond, Melbourne.
