PUBLICATION – PIÈCES-MEUBLÉS



Galerie Patrick Seguin is pleased to announce the publication of the book “Pièces-Meublés” by Bob Nickas.

‘‘Pièces-Meublés’’ is the title of a two-part exhibition (1995 and 2016) by New York art critic Bob Nickas at the invitation of Galerie Patrick Seguin.
The concept of the exhibition consisted in comparing contemporary art with the leading creations of 20th century design: by inviting about twenty artists to choose a piece of furniture to interact with their work or to integrate it by creating a new work, “Pièces-Meublés” highlighted the relevance of the links and resonances between creations and creators, beyond periods and generations.

This book of more than 200 pages illustrates the two parts of the exhibition produced twenty years apart. Articulated in two chapters – one devoted to the 1995 exhibition, the second to the 2016 – introduced by a preface by Bob Nickas, this catalogue, lavishly illustrated with in situ photographs as well as archival images for furniture and architectural elements, recounts this abundant exhibition.
