Exhibition showcases furniture designer, April 2-July 11
Posted March 25, 2004; 03:46 p.m.
The Princeton University Art Museum will give the public a rare opportunity to view a selection of Charlotte Perriand's mid-century furniture designs in an exhibition April 2 through July 11.
"Useful Forms: Furniture by Charlotte Perriand" focuses on the work of the French modernist designer who lived from 1903 to 1999. Although the subject of major exhibitions in both France and England, her work has received virtually no exposure in American museums and remains underrepresented in American museum collections. The Princeton exhibition will be only the second in the United States to focus on her work, and the first to concentrate exclusively on Perriand's designs created during the two decades following her employment in the studio of the architect Le Corbusier.
