Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ flagship dealer Motor Village Marylebone has once again been chosen as the venue for a top art exhibition, and will show the work of Italian artist Laura Zeni until 18 October.
The Wigmore Street, London site – usually home to FCA cars such as the Fiat 500 and 500X, and Alfa Romeo’s Giulietta hatchback and sporty 4C – was converted last night (8 October) into a stylish gallery and drinks reception to showcase Laura Zeni’s exhibition, ‘Movement’.
Using various techniques and materials, the exhibits reveal “a surrealism that portrays controversial feelings of the human psyche through strong, powerful images”.
Motor Village Marylebone was chosen because of its central London position and unique design and space. Situated just off Oxford Street, the showroom was originally created in 2008 with future exhibitions, displays and receptions in the plans, as well as the ability to showcase and sell cars.
“It’s a versatile and unique place, perfectly situated in central London,” says Monica Colussi, Laura Zeni’s artist liaison agent. “It’s literally a blank canvas which allows us to use space in a very innovative way. We are delighted that Motor Village agreed to host us here.”
“We’re very happy to host Laura’s exhibition at Motor Village,” says Fabio di Prima, managing director, Motor Village UK. “We were again able to combine a first class reception evening and excellent exhibition with our unique showroom environment which features, of course, FCA cars.”
