Top 100 Art & Design Trends in April

From Immersive Illusion Museums to Sensual Furniture Exhibits

— April 28, 2019 — Art & Design
The April 2019 art & design activations boast a number of innovative museum experiences, gallery-initiated casualwear, furniture exhibitions and more.

On the art front, consumers and brands still celebrate contemporary artists like Keith Haring. This becomes apparent through the whimsically colorful release by Lacoste for Spring/Summer 2019. The brand harnessed the illustrations of Keith Haring to produce an art-infused capsule that honors the late artist.

In terms of installations, one of the most celebrated creatives is KAWS who has launched a touring floating sculpture — KAWS: HOLIDAY, and is debuting an extensive portfolio of work in Hong Kong.

On the design front, the April 2019 art & design list highlight some convenience-focused and user-friendly products but also playful concepts for sneakers that rely on personalization.
