"Game ChangHer" at Oui Design 2019

Marie-Victoire Winckler

In partnership with WantedDesign, Eyes on Talents presents Game ChangHer NYC. This poetic and sensitive exhibition highlights creations signed by key women designers from France and the United States. Without opposing male and female talents, Game ChangHer NYC will celebrate the universality of design, seen here through the prism of the feminine. Aimed by the intrinsic mission of disclosure and springboard shared by WantedDesign and Eyes on Talents, Game ChangHer NYC will allow the guest designers to show their selected pieces in a singular but panoramic dialogue, thought as an echo of the imperial need of our time: "Be a Game ChangHer! The world has enough followers!"

Game ChangHer NYC will present the work of Lani Adeoye, Nina Cho, Pauline Deltour, Claire Lavabre, Inès Le Bihan, Nao Tamura, Marie Victoire Winckler.
