Opening Reception: Lina Bo Bardi: Together
Friday, April 24, 2015 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
Please join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of our spring exhibition Lina Bo Bardi: Together. Paying tribute to the influential Italian-born Brazilian architect and designer Lina Bo Bardi, this exhibition presents new works by artist Madelon Vriesendorp, filmmaker Tapio Snellman, and photographer Ioana Marinescu that together inspire new conversations around Bo Bardi's work by capturing the experience of her buildings and her inclusive approach to design.
Curated by Noemí Blager and designed by London-based Assemble, Lina Bo Bardi: Together is sponsored by Arper, which has produced Bardi's Bowl Chair (1951) in a limited edition of 500 in collaboration with Instituto Lina Bo e P. M. Bardi in São Paulo on the occasion of the centennial of Bo Bardi's birth.
