FREE ENTRY
NGV INTERNATIONAL
LEVEL 3, CONTEMPORARY ART & DESIGN
17 MAR – 30 NOV
OPEN 10AM–5PM DAILY

Creating the Contemporary Chair presents arresting and provocative chair designs by some of the most interesting Australian and international designers practising in recent decades.

Comprising thirty-five new acquisitions supported by Gordon Moffatt AM, this exhibition explores the significance of chairs as markers of design evolution and as objects embedded with meaning, expression, experimentation and utility.

Works on display range in date from 1980 to 2016 and include examples of both mass-produced and studio-created chairs sourced from around the globe.

Two years in development, Creating the Contemporary Chair explores the allure of the chair and its enduring hold over the designer.

Offering fresh perspectives on chairs designed in our time the exhibition features works by Tord Boontje, Jacopo Foggini, Konstantin Grcic, GT2P, Porky Hefer, Helen Kontouris, Ross Lovegrove, Christien Meindertsma, Patricia Urquiola, Jólan van der Wiel and Oskar Zieta to name a few.
