Here we are again on Friday, any plans for the weekend? No? I’ve a suggestion for you then.
Within the Pacific Standard Time events one that I definitely recommend you to visit -if you live close to L.A.- is California Design, 1930-1965: “Living in a Modern Way” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
“This exhibition (…) will examine the state’s role in shaping the material culture of the entire country with more than 350 objects, comprising furniture, ceramics, metalwork, graphic and industrial design, film, textiles, and fashion. The exhibition begins by tracing the origins of a distinctive California modernism in the 1930s, including work by Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and their contemporaries. It then explores the design innovations made possible by the conversion of World War II technologies to peace-time use, exemplified by the plywood and fiberglass furniture pioneered by Charles and Ray Eames. (…) The show concludes by exploring how ‘The California Look’ was disseminated by exhibitions, magazines, shops, and films throughout America and the world.” (via PST)
Check all the details about this exhibition here and -if you’ll go- let me know in the comments your impression about it.
I’m also curious to ear from you if you visited other Pacific Standard Time’s events; let me know in the comments as well or on the Mid Century Home Facebook Fan Page!
