2011 Modernism Show

The 2011 Modernism Show, held in the cavernous Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport, brought both rarities and new interpretations within the category. From works by Gio Ponti and the Lalannes to new pieces by emerging artists created over the last 10 years, the stock again exemplified the dealers’ ability to constantly renew the parameters of modernism.

Materials for Consideration

Galerie Kreo is one of the most unique spaces I know of for design. The gallery, run by Didier and Clémence Krzentowski, sees itself as a 'research laboratory,' commissioning and displaying one-off and limited-edition pieces by the likes of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Pierre Charpin, Hella Jongerius, Jasper Morrison, and Martin Szekely.  When I was in Paris earlier this year I caught their wonderful exhibition of work by L'ECAL students and teachers, "A New Generation of Lights."  Their current show is "Matières à réflexion," or "Materials for Consideration," and it looks like a good one. It's been extended till May 15, so if you can, check it out in person. If not, here's a virtual sampling of the works on view.
