Society of Architectural Historians presents "An In-Depth Look at Pierre Chareau" at the Jewish Museum with Esther da Costa Meyer. Organized by da Costa Meyer, Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design is the first U.S. exhibition focused on the internationally recognized designer and showcases more than 180 rarely-seen works from major public and private collections in Europe and the United States.
Da Costa Meyer will lead a special tour of the exhibition, which covers Chareau's furniture designs, archival materials pertaining to his interiors (almost none of which survive), the role of his patrons, Chareau's art collection, his life and work in exile in the U.S., and the iconic Maison de Verre (1932) in Paris. You'll even have the chance to "visit" the Maison de Verre through an interactive virtual reality experience designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Following the exhibition tour, da Costa Meyer will give a talk on Chareau's life and work.
Limited to 30 participants. Open to the public. Register at: http://sah.org/an-in-depth-loo...
