SELECT WORKS WITH A TWIST
January 16 – February 5, 2017
Idea Exchange Art + Design | Design at Riverside Gallery
7 Melville Street S., Cambridge, ON
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 18, 7:00pm
From deep in the Idea Exchange Permanent Collection vault, nine limited edition tapestries designed by famous 20th century artists have been waiting patiently for their Cambridge debut.
Most were commissioned in the 1960’s and ‘70’s by French arts impresario Marie Cuttoli, manufactured by the renowned weavers of Aubusson, and sold in art galleries around the world. Idea Exchange acquired them through donation and has never before exhibited them as a group.
Select Works with a Twist further shakes up the annual Idea Exchange collection exhibition by also including 17 rugs by artists and illustrators represented by Reactor Art and Design.
Featuring the work of Fernand Léger, Max Ernst, Jean (Hans) Arp, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder, Victor Vasarely, Andy Warhol, Barbara Klunder, Rene Zamic, Jeff Jackson, Maurice Vellekoop, Jamie Bennett, James Marsh, and Steven Guarnaccia.
Curated by Esther E. Shipman.
