This month, Dior Beauty unveiled a new star-studded campaign for its leading La Collection Privée Christian Dior fragrance, Gris Dior, titled “Dare in Gris Dior.” The brand tapped a talented group of stars from around the globe — Jenna Ortega, Joseph Quinn, Maya Hawke, Fai Khadra, Thuso Mbedu, Orelsan and Liu Yuxin — to front the campaign and flaunt the fragrance. In celebration of this collaboration, a temporary immersive exhibition labelled “The Grey Zone” was launched over in Los Angeles, which showcases the work of five international artists capturing the spirit of Dior and this grey-hued fragrance in their work. One of those artists is Toronto-based creative Ben Johnston, whose mesmerizing paintings you’ll find featured in the gallery. The pop-up runs until April 16, so if you’re in the Golden State and you’d like to experience Dior’s “Grey Zone” for yourself, head over to the Dior site to book a spot.
