Barneys New York Spreads Holiday Cheer with Christie Window Displays

Windows at Barneys flagship Chelsea location and downtown Manhattan feature exclusive installations from Nick Cave, Rob Pruitt, Studio Job, Ebony G. Patterson and South Park

Barneys New York has long been known for setting fashion trends, but they also have prided themselves on their eye-popping holiday window displays.

This year, Barneys called on Christie to light up two of its windows, one at the flagship Chelsea location and the other at the downtown Manhattan location.

Showing Off the #LovePeaceJoyProject

As part of Barneys’ Love Peace Joy Project, Christie 1DLP projectors and Christie Pandoras Box media servers help to display characters from Comedy Central’s South Park, while mixed-media artist Ebony G. Patterson’s window was brought to life using Christie-backed projection mapping.

Barneys also called on visual and performance artist Nick Cave, contemporary artist Rob Pruitt and artist collective Studio Job to be part of this technology-rich presentation that comes to the retailer’s new flagship Chelsea flagship location for the first time in almost 20 years.

To further spread Love, Peace, and Joy, the retailer’s newly launched Barneys New York Foundation is debuting the #LovePeaceJoyProject, a crowd-sourced social campaign to encourage audiences to share in the seasonal festivities while supporting charitable causes.

The windows “encompass the core aesthetic of each respective artist as the base, but then add another level of innovation that is unique to the Barneys New York partnership, entertaining the viewers with a dynamic viewpoint on Love, Peace and Joy,” the announcement says.

This is the fourth year that Christie has collaborated on the Barneys New York holiday window displays. The #LovePeaceJoyProject will continue through Jan. 3, 2017.

Select Barneys stores will feature digital vending machines that dispense a holiday surprise such as a mystery gift card or Love Peace Joy themed playing cards, pins, and patches.
