Pulitzer Arts Foundation: Friday, 29 July 2016
Fri, Jul 29
The Pulitzer presents three exhibitions that reframe the objects and environments of everyday life. Exquisite Everyday: 18th-Century Decorative Arts Objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum presents works of decorative art from France and Italy, showcasing the period's achievements in domestic design. The Ordinary Must Not Be Dull: Claes Oldenburg?s Soft Sculptures is dedicated to a body of work in which Oldenburg playfully altered the material, form, and scale of commonplace items, overturning sculptural conventions. Architecture collective raumlaborberlin disassembles a structurally unsound St. Louis house, giving its salvaged elements new life inside the Pulitzer as an installation, raumlaborberlin: 4562 Enright Avenue, that explores the history, present, and future of urban dwellings.
