Press Release

We are pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition titled “Reinventing Traditions: The other side of French postmodern design,” showcasing a juxtaposition of designs by Alain Gaubert, Jean Jacques Erny, Alain Marcoz, Hervé Baley, Jean Touret and the artisans of Marolles, Sylvain Contini, Jacques Avoinet, Anne Barres, Ilina Horning and Denise Bigot.

Including around 50 pieces created between the end of the 1950’s and throughout the 1970’s, this exhibition aims to highlight a branch of postmodern designers in France whose works, though emanating from the rejection of the dictates of modernism, are very much anchored in tradition and craftsmanship.
