SAVEDx

DEBUT AT MASS MoCA

SAVEDx made its debut at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in early 2019. The custom installation for our SAVEDx VALDEZ series from artist Vincent Valdez is featured at HARDWARE: The MASS MoCA Store in conjunction with Valdez’s inclusion to Suffering from Realness [curated by Denise Markonish]. Based on the Valdez painting, Till Then (canvas/oil, 2015), the limited-edition shoes can be purchased via MASS MoCA and select museums for the remainder of 2019. A portion of proceeds will help fund the Smithsonian Undergraduate Internship Program.

Vincent Valdez Introduces First Edition from SAVEDx

An engaging conversation at The Blanton Museum of Art between NPR's Maria Hinojosa and SAVEDx Partner Artist Vincent Valdez concluded with a gift of our first edition, Till Then. Per Maria, "It was a light moment in an otherwise very serious conversation about artists, art, social justice, hyper-realism, racism, changing the narrative, owning your voice & spirit of an artist who never gives up."

Catch the entire interview regarding Vincent's controversial piece, The City, below. [The shoes make an appearance in the last couple minutes of the video]
