The champagne House Perrier-Jouët, known for its refined craftsmanship and artistry since 1811, partners with National Gallery Singapore as the official champagne of the museum. The collaboration with National Gallery Singapore is an expression of Perrier-Jouët’s long engagement with the visual arts. Sine its beginnings, it has continuously imbued the everyday with art.
The champagne House Perrier-Jouët was strongly influenced by the Art Nouveau movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. During this period, art was introduced into daily life, where good workmanship was revived and status of craft was raised, lending beauty to everyday objects. This celebration of the marriage of artistry and craftsmanship continues to echo and be reflected in the aesthetics and style of the House.
Through its collaboration with National Gallery Singapore, Perrier-Jouët, for the first time, embraces modern art in South East Asia, complementing its long support for the visual arts to forge a deeper artistic experience in the region.
“As champagne House of Perrier-Jouët believes in preserving artistic heritage, we are very pleased to collaborate with National Gallery Singapore. Perrier-Jouët’s Maison Belle Epoque in France has the largest private collection of Art Nouveau pieces in Europe. Similarly, the National Gallery Singapore houses a substantial modern Southeast Asian art collection.
Through this collaboration with National Gallery Singapore, Perrier-Jouët extends in Singapore its long support for the visual arts,” says Mr Gaurav Sabharwal, Managing Director, Pernod Ricard Singapore. As the official champagne for National Gallery Singapore, Perrier-Jouët will be featured at Gallery events that bring conviviality together with the appreciation of the modern art of Singapore and the region.
These include late night events and special Perrier-Jouët tasting sessions !
“We are excited about our collaboration with Perrier-Jouët who shares our passion in the arts. This collaboration offers a great opportunity to explore more art-inspired offerings to broaden the art journey beyond our galleries, which we believe will greatly enhance our visitors’ experience,” said Mr Kola Luu, Director (Business & Corporate Strategic Development Group), National Gallery Singapore. Perrier Jouët’s support of National Gallery Singapore also continues its long tradition of creative partnerships. In 1902, Emile Gallé, a pioneer of the Art Nouveau movement, created a bottle for Perrier-Jouët, starting a tradition for the House to collaborate with artists. These well-crafted bottles are decorated with anemones representing the Art Nouveau Movement.
Ever since, the House Perrier-Jouët has annually partnered with artists and designers to create a unique artwork for Design Miami. For the latest Design Miami 2014, Perrier-Jouët collaborated with artistic duo, Mischer’Traxler. Past artist collaborations include Tord Boontje, Claire Coles, Christofle, Makoto Azuma, Vik Muniz, Miguel Chevalier, Benjamin Graindorge, Noé Duchaufour and Glithero.
