press release

This groundbreaking exhibition explores the little-known design works of significant Minimalist and post-Minimalist artists, including Scott Burton, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, James Turrell, Rachel Whiteread, and Richard Tuttle. Design ≠ Art is the first exhibition to examine the conceptual framework and relationship of functional objects (furniture, lighting, rugs) to the artists' works of art, as well as to their historical precedents. Design ≠ Art will significantly expand the viewers' understanding of these artists' collective output and the intersection of art and design at a time when their differentiation is becoming increasingly debated, interpreted and blurred.
