A new exhibition of contemporary design opens its doors today in Chicago at Wright 21 and runs until October the 6th.
The show, 'Truth in Form/Reason for Being' is composed entirely of selections by the fellow Chicago-based Volume Gallery for W21.
Curated by Claire Warner and Sam Vinz of Volume, it features excerpts of contemporary culture from American designers Brian Anderson, Stephen Burks, Cmmnwlth, Andy Coolquitt, Felicia Ferrone, Sung Jang, Jonathan Nesci, Snarkitecture, Rich Brilliant Willing and ROLU.
Truth in Form/Reason for Being examines two components of creation - the concept and the realisation of that concept. Truth in Form is an elusive, rarely ever accomplished solution, an intangible utopic ideal, whereas Reason for Being is comprised of qualities that are rational, definable, of the moment and tangible.
"In this exhibition we are not setting parameters for the artists and designers, but we are seeking to understand “now”. Gathering visual cues and analysing them, one can begin to reflect on a moment in a society where a century of technological developments are compressed into a decade.
By illuminating a brief portion of time, Truth in Form/Reason for Being is a microcosm of art, design and textile presented in a sociological context." say Warner and Vinz.
Here's just a small selection of pieces which we love, and if you're in Chicago, you'll not only be able see them in person, but it's a selling exhibition too, so you could even potentially take something home...
