To decorate the coffee cups for illy, Ralph Rugoff, curator of the Biennale art 2019, invited four very special and quite different artists of the Biennale Arte 2019: Cameron Jamie, AD Minoliti, Ulrike Müller and Slavs & Tatars. All these artists do a job that stands out for its highly creative and attractive graphic character - a quality that is considered indispensable for this particular task.
Matteo Thun’s iconic illy espresso cup has been given a new lease of life: as a blank canvas for contemporary artists from all over the globe. The result is the illy Art Collection, coffee cups that are signed, numbered objects d’art, the expression of illy’s love for art and the ideals of good, goodness and beauty.
