YOOX now offers works from critically acclaimed artists that are chosen by international critic and curator Francesco Bonami.

We are big supporters of making art accessible to everyone. That is why we were thrilled to learn that Italian online retailer YOOX is now offering works of art that have been curated by Francesco Bonami, an internationally renown critic and curator. His carefully chosen selection is comprised of prints, photography, artist objects, books and catalogs from both up-and-coming and critically acclaimed artists, like Grayson Perry, Damien Hirst, Francesco Vezolli and Padiglione Crepaccio. The selection even has exclusive works by featured artists, such as the current collaboration with Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami. Murakami, who founded the Superflat postmodern art movement, has created exclusively for YOOX only 125 pieces of two limited edition self-portraits that have been signed and numbered. An additional element of the YOOX art selection introduces special pop-up stores, like the one currently offering select works from Britain’s Tate Galleries. There is also a Magnum Photo Agency pop-up store with exclusive archive prints of iconic celebrities past and present, such as Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Mohammed Ali. In addition, YOOX live-streamed a tour of the Cinema Vezzoli exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, which was presented with a selection of popular MOCA art works that are still available. The curator of art at YOOX is Francesco Bonami, who was Senior Curator of Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and served as artistic director for the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Enel Contemporanea, Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery, and Villa Manin Center for Contemporary Art. Bonami also directed the 50th edition of the Venice Biennale, and has been the curator of numerous international exhibits including the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Biennale.
