When: July 11 - September 22, 2018
Where: 28 W. 27th St., 3rd Floor, NY, NY
Gallery Hours: M-F, 11a-6p; Sat, 10a-5p
Organized by Elisabeth Lortic, independent curator and co-founder of Les Trois Ourses (Paris)
This exhibition brings to the forefront ideas and concepts articulated by the early 20th century Futurist-informed artist Bruno Munari. It is a thoughtful and dynamic exploration of play, invention, movement, and color. It brings together a body of artworks which are child friendly, and, more importantly vehicles to engage children in creative learning processes. Like children, artists explore alternate materials, and take them to the limit of their possibilities.
Artists include: Ianna Andreadis, Marion Bataille, Mauro Bellei, John Cage & Lois Long, Remy Charlip, Ivan & Jane Chermayeff, Paul Cox, Louise-Marie Cumont, Sophie Curtil, Milos Cvach, Sylvia de Swaan, Sonia Delaunay, Olafur Eliasson, Marco Ferreri, Barbara Henry, Keith Godard, Wennie Huang, Coline Irwin, Katsumi Komagata, Kumi Korf, Warja Lavater, El Lissitzky, Richard Long, Iela & Enzo Mari, Piet Marée, Barbara Mauriello, Scott McCarney, Fanette Mellier, Fanny Millard, Bruno Munari, Thomas Ockerse, Eugenia & Vladimir Radunsky, Kurt Schwitters/Kate Steinitz/Theo Van Doesburg, Alma Siedhoff-Buscher, Claire Van Vliet, and Laurence Weiner
