Join Jennifer Olshin, Partner at Friedman Benda in New York City, for a curated tour of British designer Faye Toogood’s recent gallery exhibition, Assemblage 6: Unlearning, followed by a visit to one of the gallery’s private viewing rooms for a glimpse of a rarely seen early work by Ettore Sottsass. Throughout the segment, the gallery’s contemporary platform is addressed, which promotes leading creative thinkers and makers and creates opportunities to advance new and evolving connections within the global design community.
Friedman Benda identifies and advances key narratives that intersect contemporary design, architecture, craft, visual and conceptual art, and technological research. The gallery’s efforts promote synthesis between leading creative thinkers and makers, and create opportunities to advance new and evolving connections within the global design community. Spanning five continents and four generations, Friedman Benda represents a roster of seminal established and emerging designers, as well as historically significant estates. Since 2007, the gallery’s exhibitions, publications and collaborations with institutions have played a vital role in the development of the contemporary design market and scholarship.
“The gallery came to be to take on a roster of living designers and to tell stories through the lens of design. The New York art world has been an inspiration, with its network of galleries, museums, and wider creative communities that are several generations deep and international in scope. Friedman Benda takes deep dives into dialogue, fabrication, scholarship, cross-pollinations of creative minds and scholars, of thinkers and makers, and stays at the cutting edge.”
