Visionaire 65 FREE, supported by Stella Artois, came in the form of 36 large-format posters by contemporary artists that were given away for free in 3 cities: on the beach during Art Basel Miami Beach; at the CAA Headquarters during Oscar Week in LA; and in NYC at Frieze Art Fair, Times Square, Union Square, SoHo, and the Highline. Visionaire gave away close to 200K posters to tens of thousands of visitors.
Visionaire leaves an indelible mark on independent publishing this year, celebrating its 25th anniversary with a totally radical issue. For the first time, this rare and expensive limited-edition collectible has produced a FREE issue. Its 65th issue titled FREE will be given away for FREE via a public art installation at the CAA headquarters in LA.
Visionaire 65 FREE and its corresponding public installation presented in partnership with Stella Artois, mark the second iteration of a three- part partnership. In December 2015, Visionaire mounted a massive installation on the beach in Miami during Art Basel, giving away thousands of art prints to the public.
LA marks Part 2 with a brand new set of 12 Art Prints given away at an out-of-this-world installation produced by Bureau Betak at the sprawling CAA headquarters. These installations are the only opportunity for the public to get their free art!
FREE is an opportunity for artists to leave their mark in this world by offering beautifully printed contemporary artworks worthy of framing and hanging in your home to the public. We are passionate about powerful images and celebrate the artists who make us think and see the world differently through their vision.
The issue of Visionaire FREE and the corresponding FREE Public Installations are presented in partnership with Stella Artois. In the brand’s quest to inspire others to leave their mark as part of the “Be Legacy” campaign, Stella Artois is proud to support these world-renowned artists and allow LA art lovers to take home their high- ly-coveted prints for FREE.
