titled ‘glow up’, the exhibit was curated by in good company alongside A/D/O — the creative space founded by MINI as part of the company’s own design practice and continued exploration of innovations that improve urban life. taking over the brooklyn location’s inner courtyard, amanda richards, marco piscitelli, bailey fontaine, gregory beson, arcana, nick missel, and ian cochran, have each created a light work that is suspended throughout the outdoor space.
