Le Cabinet de Curiosités, a new exhibit open now in Manhattan, is a place of wonderment dedicated to the accumulation of imaginary planets and their inhabitants, paintings, sculptures, specimen, insects, as well as rare antique furniture from the Steinitz Collection. The exhibition is the conception and curation of architect, designer and artist, Thierry W. Despont. It juxtaposes his extraordinary work with sculptor, Manolo Valdés and hyperrealist, Claudio Bravo. Despont considers the exhibit to be similar to a natural history museum of his artistic universe. With Le Cabinet de Curiosités, Despont utilizes his expertise in both art and architecture to present a completely integrated environment.
