DECISIVE DESIGN / EXHIBITION / ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO /
2009
Art Institute of Chicago, Modern Wing
November 20th 2009 – January 24th 2010

"Konstantin Grcic: Decisive Design", on view in the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago is the first comprehensive showcase of my work in a U.S. museum.
Curated by Zoë Ryan (Neville Bryan Curator of Design at the Art Institute of Chicago), the exhibition is conceived as a studio-like environment.
Extending over the full wall space of the gallery, the display processes content in a very didactical way, illuminating the objects through a variety of drawings, models, prototypes, photos, film, text etc. In addition there is an open stage in the center of the exhibition, which puts some objects out into use; visitors are invited to sit on furniture, touch material, experience the spatiality of the products, their geometry and scale.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, authored by Zoë Ryan.
