Gagosian Senior Director Han-I Wang will lead a tour of Marc Newson’s first exhibition of limited-edition furniture in China. This presentation explores Newson’s use of increasingly rare decorative processes at an unconventionally large, even unprecedented, scale, as well as his curiosity with the streamlined, simple beauty of Asian art and design. From cloisonné to cast glass chairs to Aikuchi swords, Wang will take a closer look at how the artist blurs the boundaries between sculpture, furniture, and the decorative arts. To attend the free event, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited.
