Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design

October 23, 2016
through March 26, 2017

The Jewish Museum continues its slew of wonderful design exhibitions, bringing us the first-ever U.S. exhibition on French designer and architect Pierre Chareau (1883-1950). The show includes rare pieces from his most famous work, the Maison de Verre in Paris, a collaboration with Bernard Bijvoet and Louis Dalbet, as well as his collaboration with Robert Motherwell on the artist’s home and studio in East Hampton. The exhibition looks at Chareau’s work within the fuller context of his life, including his Jewish heritage, his patronage of the Modern art scene, and his experience living through two World Wars and fleeing to New York to escape Nazi persecution.

Through March 26
