Location: Artspace, 50 Orange St, New Haven, CT 06510

Join us for the Opening Reception of Perverse Furniture, a group exhibition that upsets conventional notions of furniture to explore a range of materially expressive and emotionally intelligent “designs for the body”.  Organized on the 100th Anniversary of the Bauhaus, this exhibition explores how three generations of U.S. based artists grapple with the German school’s legacies and ideological roots.  The artists include: Graham Anderson, Johanna Bresnick, Bernadette DespujolsBrian GalderisiRobert GregsonCrystal Heiden, Robert Chase Heishman and Megan Schvaneveldt, Meredith James, Kyle Kearson, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Esteban Ramón Pérez, Jeff Ostergren and Jessi Reaves, Chris Ruggiero and Nina Yuen. 

This is also the opening reception for Seven Spans, a solo show of nine wall mounted fiber sculptures created by our current Artist-in-Residence, Erin Lee Antonak, and a collaborative multisensory installation produced by Antonak and photographer Kim Weston. 

There will be an artist talk from 1-2:15pm.

Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public. Let your friends know you are coming, join the Facebook Event.
