LONDON.- The New Décor is an international survey
of 36 contemporary artists from 22 countries who explore interior design as a
means of engaging with changes in contemporary culture that range from the
impact of globalism to our shifting boundaries of public and private. What
unites the artists is their ability to transform objects we associate with the
everyday – a bed, a shelf, a lamp – into something uncanny, compelling, and
revealing. Curated by Ralph Rugoff, Director of the Hayward Gallery, The New
Décor is a highlight of Festival Brazil, a major summer festival celebrating the
dynamic culture of today’s Brazil, sponsored by HSBC.
