Reginald Sylvester II: Chairs Beyond Right & Wrong
10 September 2019, 2:09 PM
Opening 10 September, Maximillian William is delighted to present Chairs Beyond Right and Wrong, a group exhibition featuring Reginald Sylvester II at R & Company, New York. The exhibition will run from 10 September – 19 October 2019.
Curated by Raquel Cayre, this exhibition re-thinks the chair and its corresponding forms of use and design. Featuring nearly 50 international artists and designers, the exhibition surveys the chair as a formal object, a product, a structure, a symbol and a material. Participants are invited to explore how these ideas contribute to an expanded notion of the chair as an archetype for creative work, while challenging the categorical divisions that extend between art and design. Some works were newly-produced for the exhibition, while others were curated specifically for their ability to contour away from pre-existing notions of form and function.
