This summer, Hysterical bridges Card’s creative wonderland backdrop to a selection of works available for private sale by contemporary artists focusing on the farcical and neurotic within contemporary art. The showcase includes a collaboration with Dior Homme artistic director Kim Jones and a piece with renowned photographer Tim Walker, alongside numerous works from artists such as Kaws, George Condo, Cindy Sherman, Harold Ancart and Erik Parker, with more artworks to be announced.
