VISIONAIRE 65 FREE: Deluxe Edition is the luxury culmination of the three original VISIONAIRE 65 FREE site-specific installations, into a collectible edition of the eponymous New York publication. The concept for the installations mused upon the democratic power of art, the imperative nature of the poster, and simultaneously explored the double meaning of the concept “FREE”, wherein both the artists and viewers are posed the thematic questions of what not only ‘free’ means symbolically or literally, but also in terms of ‘worth’ in the art-world and its relationship to creative freedom itself. The three, free, interactive public art exhibitions were mounted during three important cultural weeks across Miami (Art Basel, 
Dec 2015), Los Angeles (Oscar’s week, Feb 2016), and New York (Frieze Art Fair, May 2016), where twelve, large format art images per city were released, self-curated and collated by attendees. In its original inception—an inversion of VISIONAIRE’s usually-limited and exclusive prints—in order to experience the edition, collectors would have had to attend each installation across the United States. However, due to the inconvenience placed on long-time collectors and collecting institutions, Visionaire offers 65 FREE: Deluxe Edition as a purchasable and shippable issue comprised of all thirty-six art posters. Realizing that the contents needed packaging, Visionaire tapped friend and long-time contributor 
Marc Jacobs. Collectors can now acquire all thirty-six art posters for the first time, housed in a beautiful, custom, hand-numbered Marc Jacobs travel bag, designed exclusively for the edition, to add to their VISIONAIRE collection. In this sense, the tongue-in-cheek irony of “FREE” is not lost on VISIONAIRE, nor to the lifelong collectors of the publication or the contributing artists, whose sense of ‘free’ is often challenged by the art market and its expectations over creative freedoms. VISIONAIRE is excited to work, once again, with friend and New York cultural icon and fashion innovator, Marc Jacobs. Jacobs has collaborated with VISIONAIRE for decades, including as guest-art director for VISIONAIRE 52 PRIVATE. We are thrilled to join forces with both brand and designer to create this bespoke, exclusive packaging for the VISIONAIRE 65 FREE: Deluxe Edition.      We at VISIONAIRE are passionate about powerful images and celebrate the artists who make us think and see the world differently through their creativity and vision.  The VISIONAIRE 65 FREE project, including the art posters and their corresponding public installations, were originally presented in partnership with Stella Artois.
