Design San Francisco 2012
De Sousa Hughes - SFDC Galleria Atrium
The British Aesthetic movement championed “Art for Art’s Sake” and the cultivation of beauty in everyday life. Though it began in the realm of fine art, the movement ultimately transcended the wall of painters’studios to transform decorative arts, domestic interiors and architecture, inspiring a lifestyle revolution and giving birth to the modern interior design industry.
On February 18th, the first comprehensive exhibition on this influential era, The Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde, 1860-1900, opens at the Legion of Honor. Join 3D – Definitive Design + Décor magazine Editor-in-Chief Alisa Carroll, Fine Arts Museums’ Curator in Charge of European Art Lynn Federle Orr, design editor and writer Zahid Sardar and interior designer Geoffrey De Sousa for a conversation about the Aesthetics and their legacy.
