Eileen Gray at Bard Graduate Center Gallery

The work of Eileen Gray (1878–1976), an Irish architect-designer, is exhibited at Bard Graduate Center Gallery from February 29 to July 12, 2020.

Working primarily in France, Eileen Gray was a pioneer in modern design and architecture and one of the few women to practice professionally in those fields before World War II.

This exhibition is the first in the United States to examine the total oeuvre of Eileen Gray. In addition to affirming her accomplishments as an architect and a designer, it sheds light on the full sweep of Gray’s career, including her work as a painter and photographer. The exhibition is largely based on new research, including plans, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and letters, that reveal how Gray designed her most famous house, E 1027, and other architectural projects. The exhibition features never-before-seen furniture and lacquer works, as well as paintings, photography, rugs, and archival materials from her best-known projects.

The exhibition is curated by Cloé Pitiot. It has been organized by Centre Pompidou, Paris, in collaboration with Bard Graduate Center.
