“Sanctum” by @gjertrudhals is now on view at @galeriemariawettergren.
Weaving with various metals, salvaged from recycling sites or found on beaches or on the side of the road, Gjertrud Hals creates large three-dimensional sculptures and wall weavings. Chosen for their intrinsic beauty - the reddish copper wire of electric cables, the dark-colored iron of dynamos and motors, the ring-pulls of tin cans - Hals weaves these so-called poor materials by hand, or hammers them like a goldsmith, all the while questioning the borders between high-art and low-art, fine and applied arts. #soloshow#sanctum#fiberartist#textileartist#scandinaviandesign#contemporaryart#galeriemariawettergren
Congratulations to @hostlerburrows on the official opening of its Los Angeles location! Forest Primeval, the galleries inaugural group exhibition, explores our dependence on nature, less for the tangible resources which have thus far sustained our physical beings, but more for the way it feeds our creative, philosophical and intellectual spirits.
We are looking forward to celebrating this gallery opening with @perrierjouet, @cultured_mag and @lala_mag later this week!
Jean Prouvé, Rolling step-ladder, 1951, commission for the Société Générale bank in Douai (France). The Société Générale bank commissioned the Ateliers Jean Prouvé to equip some of its agencies with step-ladders for the strongbox rooms and large poster holders as part of its ongoing investments to develop the workspace and the reception of its customers. This step-ladder - equipped with self-blocking wheels - is reminiscent of Prouvé's creative language through the use of bent sheet metal and the singular shape of the handrail. A similar model is in the collections of the Centre Pompidou. #jeanprouvé#prouvé#prouve#stepladder#midcenturydesign#design#furniture#galeriepatrickseguin 📸: @galeriepatrickseguin
On view now at @CristinaGrajalesGallery is Impressions, a group show featuring a poetic dialogue between photography and design. Works from designers Christophe Côme, Stefan Bishop, photographers Don Freeman, and Matthew Jensen juxtapose two dissimilar processes of observation and the resulting impact for their works.

Light carries a large part of the sun's energy and maintains the balance of the natural environment with the regeneration of oxygen by the chlorophyll in plants. Through their work on light, the artists in this exhibition on view at @gallery_sceneouverte seek to find harmony in the initial chaos, and even to project the idea of an urgent ethics of our behavior towards nature.
@RandCompanyNYC presents Wendell Castle and the “Quiet Revolution” an extensive retrospective of early masterworks by Wendell Castle. On view is a curated collection of fifteen masterworks by Castle made between 1959-80 that demonstrate his most important collectable designs. Pictured is one of Wendell Castle’s most significant works that has never before been publicly exhibited. This “Chest of Drawers” from 1962 is a fusion of American midcentury modernism and sculpture made of birch, plywood, oak and walnut.
