Members Only Tour of Spectacular Vernacular
Tuesday November 22nd 2016, 5:15 pm7:00 pm

Please join us for an exclusive Lost Arts and ChiDM member tour of Parsons & Charlesworth: Spectacular Vernacular, led by designers Jessica Charlesworth and Tim Parsons!

Spectacular Vernacular is the first major solo exhibition of work by the design studio Parsons & Charlesworth, formally founded by British husband and wife Tim Parsons and Jessi­ca Charlesworth in 2014 after years of informal collaboration. Showing three distinct facets of their creative practice – observation, experimen­tation and speculation – the exhibition reveals how Parsons & Charlesworth mix their craft and industrial design backgrounds with influences from fiction, science and the arts. The multifaceted approach explores the rhetorical as well as the practical oppor­tunities of designed objects, making the case for independent design practice as a critical response and essen­tial adjunct to the corporate design world.

There will be two time slots for tours this evening, one at 5:15 and one at 6:15. Please only RSVP for one tour time. Additionally, there is limited space for this event. Please do not RSVP if you cannot 100% commit to attending.
