H-Box: Hermes Art

Cucumber martini toasts clinked last night in London's Tate Modern Gallery at the premiere of H-box, Hermès' traveling video art exhibit. The futuristic structure which resembles a piece of honeycomb, was designed by architect/artist Didier Fiuza Faustino. Inside the H-box resides work of eight video artists from different countries and cultures (each year, 4 new artists substitute 4 of the previous). "I really like the work of Su-Mei Tse, she's a very subtle and graceful artist," said Pascale Mussard, co-artistic director of Hermès, "[All the artists] push us and help us to see from a different angle." The H-Box global tour, which sees the video as moving art through the world, will reside at the Tate until Aug. 17, when it travels to the Yokohama Triennale in Japan.
