Lecture: Doris Duke's Shangri La
November 14, 2012
Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center invites you to its Modern Design Lecture: Doris Duke's Shangri La. Donald Albrecht and Thomas Mellins, co-curators of the exhibition "Doris Duke's Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape and Islamic Art" will discuss the extraordinary dialogue between Islamic tradition and and western modernity that shaped Duke's fabled Honolulu residence. This is the fourth in a series of lectures presented by Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center, the home, studio and woodland garden of 20-century industrial designer Russel Wright in Garrison, NY. While different in mood and texture, Manitoga and Shangri La share the distinction of being intensely personal modernist statements by mid 20th-century legends that synthesize architecture, landscape and the decorative arts.
