SEOUL, June 20, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) collaborated with Anish Kapoor1 to showcase the world-renowned British-Indian artist’s media artwork on LG SIGNATURE OLED R. Representing the perfect fusion of artistry and technology, Kapoor’s experiential digital art on LG’s sublime, self-lit TV was presented in collaboration with LISSON GALLERY in Basel, Switzerland during Art Basel 2022 from June 16-19.

With superior picture quality enabled by millions of self-lit pixels, LG OLED TV has become a favorite with the creative industries and innovative artistic practitioners worldwide. Its ability to capture the essence of the artist’s vision through vibrant, accurate color reproduction, complete with deep blacks and infinite contrast, make LG OLED2 the ultimate digital canvas. Add in the unique form factor of LG SIGNATURE OLED R, which pairs a rollable screen – an innovation made possible by LG OLED technology – with a timeless, minimalist design, and the stage is set for the most memorable art and viewing experiences imaginable.

One of the most important artists working today, Anish Kapoor is a sculptor known for his distinctive and often impressively-scaled installations, such as Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park and Sky Mirror (2006) in New York’s Rockefeller Center. Noted for his use of abstract forms, rich colors and reflective surfaces, the artist has turned his attention to the two-dimensional in his unique collaboration with LG.

Kapoor’s new work takes the form of a short film that continues his decades of combining shape with luxurious, saturated colors that constantly and subtly shift from one mesmerizing hue to another. The work was paired with a specially-commissioned soundtrack that adds to the experiential nature of the piece; complementing the visuals shown on LG SIGNATURE OLED R while drawing viewers into ‘the moment,’ and at times, creating a sense of disorientation.

LG previously partnered with Anish Kapoor for his major exhibition at the Accademia Gallery in Venice last April. During the event, LG OLED evo TV G series models were used to display images of Kapoor’s most well-known sculptures and installations, leveraging LG’s OLED evo technology to faithfully reproduce the colors and textures – and convey the three-dimensionality – of his physical works.

To celebrate the latest LG-Kapoor collaboration, 10 editions of the LG SIGNATURE OLED R Anish Kapoor Edition will be meeting art lovers around the world via LISSON GALLERY, one of the leading galleries, which has worked with the artist for forty years.

LG continues to deliver enriching artworld experiences through hosting a series of exhibitions demonstrating the intrinsic link and undeniable harmony between art and technology. The digital artworks brought to life by LG OLED will be uploaded to the OLED Art project website after their real-world unveiling, allowing art enthusiasts and OLED fans around the world to enjoy them at their convenience.

      I've just got a 55NANO80 TV and tried to set it up today. 
      I got through the set up as far as connecting via satellite, cable or aerial.   This stumped me because I don't have any of these, as far as I know!  I just have NOW TV.  So, I pressed exit, thinking that the TV would skip trying to search for channels.   The screen then flashed with vertical black and white lines and then went completely black.  
      I have tried to reset the TV and turn it off and back on.  Nothing shows on the screen, so I cannot press the settings button or anything.  
      Have I been sent a dud TV or have I missed something really obvious?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
      Edit:  I have turned Now TV on and the sound is coming through the television, but I still have no picture.

      I cant for instance say "Play big bang theory on LG TV"

      Or it says "I also need to know which device to use. try saying that again, and include the device's name"

      A paradise for furniture lovers, Milan Design Week is also one of the best places to check out the latest in kitchen design and appliances. This year’s edition of Italy’s globally-famous design fair featured wares from many top global brands, including well-known lifestyle innovator, LG. The company’s booth offered up a full menu of delicious events for 2022, enabling visitors to experience the unique value and craftsman-like quality of the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup of premium built-in appliances.

      Signature Kitchen Suite’s ‘True to Food’ philosophy centers on the importance of preserving the original flavors of fresh ingredients, and is underpinned by a full understanding and sincere appreciation of the journey of good food. LG is proud to play its part in the final step of this journey with its state-of-the-art Signature Kitchen Suite’s appliances – including pro ranges designed to cook local specialties in the exact way (be it sous vide, induction, gas, griddle, true convection or steam) that best preserves their distinctive flavors and honors local culinary traditions.
      The ‘True to Food’ philosophy could be seen, smelled and tasted throughout the variety of activities and displays – including cooking shows, concept catering, illustrative artwork and wine tastings – delivered in collaboration with chefs, artists and influencers who share the brand’s ideals.

      Let’s take a look at some of the interactive, informative and often delectable events LG prepared for Milan Design Week 2022.

      Entertaining Cooking Shows with New Signature Kitchen Suite Appliances
      Leveraging Signature Kitchen Suite appliances, LG provided innovative experiences every day of the week-long celebration, putting on engaging cooking shows for people who value the art of cooking and enjoy gourmet food that allows the original flavors of ingredients.

      Visitors were able to take part in cooking demonstrations showcasing traditional cooking methods and the precision of the Signature Kitchen Suite Pro Range featuring built-in sous vide function and the brand’s superb Induction Oven. Chef Christopher Tomei impressed those on hand by making mouthwatering food and by hosting lively panel discussions about the joys and benefits of authentic cooking. And, for an innovative mixture of cuisine and electronic music, LG presented daily performances by the trio of Italian artists known as Food Ensemble.
       
      Concept Catering: Sharing the Original Taste of Local Ingredients
      As well as entertaining cooking shows, LG’s booth captivated visitors’ senses with twice-daily ‘concept catering’ events. Mimosa Milano, a Milan-based cooking project led by chef Mimosa Misasi, treated attendees to an array of fine foods made with local ingredients, such as fragrant and flavor-rich herbs and spices, perfectly preserved and precisely prepared using Signature Kitchen Suite products.
       
      Sharing Brand Values Through the Power of Art
      The core values of the Signature Kitchen Suite brand and its ‘True to Food’ philosophy were also communicated through the instantly-recognizable art of Italian illustrator, architect and author, Carlo Stanga, who created two exclusive works for LG’s Milan Design Week showcase. Displayed inside the booth, the first depicted a cityscape which visitors could zoom-in on to discover Signature Kitchen Suite appliances, then click to find out more about each product and its features. The second artwork, exhibited outside the Signature Kitchen Suite’s Milan showroom, offered Stanga’s creative interpretation of the beautiful city of Milan.

      Wine tastings completed the artful culinary experience, giving visitors the opportunity to sample and savor wines chilled to perfection in the Signature Kitchen Suite Column Wine Cellar and Under-counter Wine Cellar.

      The diverse program of events held during Milan Design Week elegantly expressed the ‘True to Food’ philosophy and unique value of LG’s sophisticated built-in brand, successfully introducing more people to the advanced technologies, stylish design and convenient features that define the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup.
