2011 September 27
“Living in a Modern Way: California Design 1930-1965,” opening Oct. 1st at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, makes an argument that the mid-century contributions of Californian artists was broad, extending beyond architecture and ceramics to textiles and graphic design and more.
The exhibit will feature over 348 exhibits displaying furniture, graphic design, fashion, surfboards, and more. At the heart of the show is the work of Charles and Ray Eames, whose living room has been re-created in full-scale inside the museum. (Check out the previous link to see a stop-motion video of the entire 4-week process of the move from the house in the Pacific Palisades and set-up of the Eames living room at LACMA, very cool.)
