LONDON.-
Borrowing its title from an essay by Jean
Genet, The Tightrope Walker will explore the interface between fine art
practice, design and furniture within the radical framework of Paris in
the
aftermath of Nazi occupation and the Second World War. This exhibition
at
Timothy Taylor Gallery represents a very rare meeting of art and design
in a
gallery context. It will explore how artists and designers sought
simplicity and
honesty amidst a growing appreciation of the ordinary and the everyday
during
this key transitional period in European history. On view 10 July
through 27
August.
