Contemporary Living: Art, Craft & Design

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with art exhibitions where you look at paintings hung on blank white walls or sculptures on minimalist plinths in empty rooms. But sometimes one wants a more comprehensive overview of a particular design trend—a glimpse into a different lifestyle, where stepping into the exhibition is like stepping into the home of your dreams. That’s where exhibitions like Contemporary Living: Art, Craft & Design come in. Curated by Christie’s in collaboration with The New Craftsmen and Southern Guild, the exhibition will feature contemporary artists, designers and craftsmen including Pablo Bronstein, Hugo McCloud, Dan Rees and Richard Aldrich, with pieces by Sebastian Cox, Georgia Campbell, Porky Hefer, Dokter & Misses and David Krynauw. Open for four days, the exhibition design will change each day, throwing up new and unexpected connections and juxtapositions between objects in the “Patron’s House”, an installation and scale model of the space and the works in the exhibition which visitors are invited to engage with and arrange as they want.
