This Modern Life

Craft in the Midcentury Interior

Fri, Dec 2, 2011

The handmade object became an important element in the midcentury interior, from pottery that served as accent pieces, to natural wood furniture of designers like George Nakashima, to completely artist-crafted interiors. Crafting Modernism Curators Jeannine Falino and Jennifer Scanlan will lead a tour of the exhibition, followed by a short presentation of the ways in which craft entered the home in the postwar period, adding a human touch to rooms filled with industrially produced furniture.
