Workshop: ChiDM Loves Interiors!
Saturday January 24th 2015, 1:00 pm–3:00 pm
Join ChiDM for a series of programs that explore the vibrant themes of our current exhibition, Deborah Sussman Loves Los Angeles! Meet members of the museum’s curatorial committee and the greater creative community as you learn about and discuss topics relating to Deborah Sussman’s work such as color theory, environmental design, interiors, furniture and object design, fashion and retailing.
Much attention has been paid to the large scale and public spaces of Los Angeles, from the highways to the architecture and the influence of the landscape. And while many of Deborah Sussman’s most celebrated projects relate directly to the sprawling physical landscape of the city, she also spent nearly 10 years with the Eames Office, designers whose furniture helped define the aesthetic of an era.
This discussion group will explore post-war housing, the manufacturing of furniture and appliances, and the domestic interior within a distinctly California style through articles and essays by leading design historians. (PDFs of readings will be sent to participants upon registration.) Discussion led by curatorial committee member Morgan Walsh.
