ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

Exploring the creativity, forms and art of seating.

The Chair Show explores the creativity, forms and art of seating.  At center stage is the chair, endlessly recast as luxurious or austere, regal or intimate, straightforward or ironic. Chairs give shape to the ways in which we rest and recreate ourselves in private, or inhabit ‘seats of power’ in public.  As supporting players of day-to-day existence, focal points of ceremonies, or revered objects of spiritual and sacred spaces, chairs are invested with diverse meanings and purposes.

The familiarity and suggestive associations of chairs make them attractive subjects for many contemporary artists. Some artist create aesthetically compelling utilitarian objects, while others have all but gutted the old Bauhaus directive of “form follows function.”

The Chair Show includes sculptural, conceptual, functional and dysfunctional forms of seating, as well as paintings and installations inspired by chairs.  The works, chosen by an open call and curatorial invitation, represent 50 artists from the regional artistic community.
