Mr. Bigglesworthy @ Auckland Art Gallery

Come along and join us for a lazy Sunday afternoon at California Design.

We are very excited to be part of California Design.. On Sunday August 25th and September 22nd, Mr. Bigglesworthy will present ten stand out pieces from this optimistic and influential period as part of the Auckland Art Gallery exhibition. California Modern, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way opens at Auckland Art Gallery on 6 July 2013. More details here. Curated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), it promises to be an amazing show having had great reviews when it opened in Los Angeles and in Tokyo. Expect to see over 250 pieces of furniture, textiles, fashion, graphics, industrial design, ceramics, jewellery, metalwork, architectural drawings, photography and film from familiar key designers and also those previously overlooked from this ground breaking time in the Golden State. Auckland Art Gallery Senior Curator Ron Brownson says, 'The exhibition touches every aspect of Californian living, from the clothing and jewellery people wore to the homes they lived in, the furniture they used, and the advertising and art which surrounded them. '..a must see..California in all its midcentury glory.' - The New York Times 'This breezy, beautiful exhibition shows how mid-century modernism still has a hold...' - Vogue, USA Featuring: Charles & Ray Eames Saul Bass, Levi Strauss & Co., Frank Lloyd Wright, Carlos Diniz, Richard Neutra, Julius Shulman, Paul Laslo, Greta Grossman Magnusson, Alvin Lustig, Jack Stauffacher, Peter Voulkos, John Van Hamersvald, Beff, Straub and Hensman, Robert Guidi, Henry Dreyfuss, Mattel, Hendrik Van Keppel, Greg Noll, Mary Ann DeWeese, Charles Kratka, Pierre Koenig, Wallace Neff, John Follis and James Reid, Cedric Gibbons.
