LONDON.- Bold, experimental and inventive, Ron
Arad defies categorisation. This internationally acclaimed London-based maverick
is variously described as a designer, architect and artist. Ron Arad: Restless
is the first major exhibition of Arad’s work in the UK. It opens at Barbican Art
Gallery on 18 February 2010.
Spanning three decades, the show traces
the development of Arad’s designs from his early post-punk approach, assembling
works from readymade parts to his technologically-advanced sculptural objects
made of highly polished metals. Featuring a dramatic installation design by Ron
Arad Associates using the latest LED display technology, the exhibition also
includes architectural designs and instantly recognisable mass-produced objects.
