Exhibition: "Eileen Gray Architect Designer Painter"
A major retrospective of the work of Eileen Gray, one of the most celebrated and influential designers and architects of the 20th-century opens to the public on Saturday 12 October 2013 at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Eileen Gray Architect Designer Painter is a tribute to Gray’s outstanding career as a leading member of the modern design movement. Designed and produced by the Centre Pompidou (where the exhibition has attracted 200,000 visitors), in collaboration with IMMA, the exhibition celebrates Gray’s Irish roots and presents a number of previously unseen works that offer new insights into Gray’s extraordinary career. The exhibition will be officially opened by Jimmy Deenihan, T.D., Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and Alfred Pacquement, Director of the Musée national d’art moderne / Centre Pompidou, on Friday 11 October 2013.
The Eileen Gray exhibition coincides with the reopening of the main building at IMMA
The exhibition is curated by Cloé Pitiot, Curator, Centre Pompidou, Paris. It is presented in association with the National Museum of Ireland where an Eileen Gray exhibition is on permanent display at the National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History.
The exhibition is supported by the French Embassy in Ireland, Irish Distillers, Arup, the Merrion Hotel, the Dylan Hotel, and THE IRISH TIMES.
In April 2014 an International Symposium on the artist will be held in Dublin.
