Members Only Tour of Spectacular Vernacular
Tuesday November 22nd 2016, 5:15 pm–7:00 pm
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.
