For the first time Luxembourg contemporary art is presented on a dedicated platform
12/9/2015 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Recently the new innovative platform LAC has been successfully launched showcasing for the first time solely Luxembourg contemporary artists and outstanding positions from the creative industry. The three letters LACstand for Lux Art Contemporary (www.luxartcontemporary.lu) and the aim to give the Luxembourg art and creative scene a broader audience.
Explaining more about his motivation founder Christian Lepsien says: „For me Luxembourg is a fascinating country with open-minded people. Outstanding artists represent the unique identity of the country – unfortunately do they have low visibility. Luxembourg is intensively and successfully working to strengthen its position in the international context of fine art with exciting state owned museums and an international gallery scene. For me the local art and creative scene plays a central role in this development, therefore with LAC we are aiming to provide higher visibility and build networks. “
LAC is an independent, digital platform aiming to gather the most exciting positions within the field of fine art and creative industry. The idea is to provide them with a dedicated and curated platform, accessible for people in Luxembourg and abroad. LAC accompanies the work of artists and representatives of the creative industry such as fashion and interior designers and gives vivid insights into their personality and work environment. In the format of an interactive blog LAC will continuously introduce new exciting positions to be shared with people all around the world. Currently blog portraits of the artists Anne Michaux, Justine Blau, Anina Rubin, Max Mertens, Gilles Pegel and Armand Quetsch are being shown.
“Artists and designers from Luxembourg or with strong connections to Luxembourg can get in touch with us if they are interested to be featured by LAC. The features are free of charge”, explains Christian Lepsien, who, in the near future, is planning to launch further activities with LAC in Luxembourg and abroad.
The platform was founded in 2015 by the entrepreneur and art enthusiast Christian Lepsien and his colleague Sandra Capel. Besides other activities Christian Lepsien also founded the Lepsien Art Foundation in 2005 (www.lepsien-art-foundation.com). He lives and works in Berlin and Luxembourg. Sandra Capel has been an active supporter of the Lepsien Art Foundation since a long time and she is also heading the marketing and communication section of the cross–media publishing house artevie publishing.
LAC collaborates with a network of committed people in Luxembourg and abroad, who support LAC in its mission. LAC is open to artists from all disciplines as painting, sculpture, photography, video or digital art, as well as for all fields of creative and experimental design.
