Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy, will host from May 1 to October 31, 2015.
As a part of Expo Milano 2015 the exhibition Arts & Foods curated by Germano Celant presented at the Triennale of Milan from April 9 to the end of October 2015, retraces and analyses the intricate relationship between the arts and foods from 1851 – the date of the first Expo in London, through the present days.
Following the chronological order of the exhibition, the Maison des Jours Meilleurs designed by Jean Prouvé in 1956, with the kitchen implanted at the heart of it, perfectly illustrates the after war ideals of the reconstruction and the architecture conceived for the unfortunate people.
Presented as a “show house” the Maison des Jours Meilleurs is furnished with Jean Prouvé’s iconic pieces (tables, chairs, arm-chairs and bed) of the Galerie Patrick Seguin.

“Patrick Seguin and Larry Gagosian may have found the closest thing to a match made in exhibition heaven. On Friday, Gagosian’s 24th Street location in Manhattan opened its doors to “Chamberlain / Prouvé” a joint exhibition of American sculptor John Chamberlain and French architect-designer-engineer Jean Prouvé. Executed in collaboration with Paris’s Galerie Patrick Seguin, the show features two fully erected Prouvé prefab houses, numerous Chamberlain sculptures of varying size, and models and parts of additional Prouvé works.”

“An idiosyncratic show combining the work of two geniuses who used metal in new if nearly opposite ways needs to be carefully balanced. Displaying 12 crushed car-body sculptures by the American sculptor John Chamberlain (1927-2011) in and around two prefab structures by the French architect-designer Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) doesn’t quite do the trick…Ultimately, this counts as an invaluable and fabulous solo show, assembled in collaboration with Galerie Patrick Seguin, a leading dealer in all things Prouvé headquartered in Paris. ”
