Come to the Art Gallery & hear me speak...

You can book here. Come for a wine, some music, and a 20 min talk, whereupon I choose my two fave pieces from this most inspiring of exhibitions. This Tuesday at 7pm.


This is an amazing exhibition revolving around the height of American Modernism. California Design - the first major examination of modern California design - and it demonstrates the impact of California's artists, craftspeople and designers on the products, furnishings and houses of mid-twentieth-century America.



The exhibition features more than 250 objects including furniture by Charles and Ray Eames, fashions from Levi Strauss & Co. and graphics by Saul Bass. A number of landmark industrial designs, ceramics, jewellery, metalwork, architectural drawings and photography will also be on show.
It had a demonstrable impact of design in New Zealand, so I will touch on this too.
