We are excited to debut Lure Radiata, our latest work, at “Designing Women III: Mother” exhibition at the Tribeca showroom of Egg Collective. The Lure Radiata is the fourth iteration in the Lure Collection that seeks to reimagine a formal vocabulary for light fixtures through hand-cast cotton paper and color.
Designing Women III: MOTHER is a curatorial collaboration between design studio Egg Collective (Stephanie Beamer, Crystal Ellis, and Hillary Petrie) and artist Tealia Ellis Ritter. It showcased historical work icons like Louise Bourgeoise from Designing Women III: MOTHER builds upon Egg Collective’s previous exhibitions, Designing Women (2017) and Designing Women II: Masters, Mavericks, and Mavens(2018), all of which have sought to foster a dialogue about women in the applied and fine arts. Historical and contemporary works of both fine art and design will be presented.
From Egg Collective
“To stand amongst the historical pieces included in Designing Women III: MOTHER offers a compelling look at the work and careers of the historical artists and designers, such as Louise Bourgeois, Eva Zeisel and Imogen Cunningham, noting the struggles that appeared along their paths of motherhood/creator and their eventual critical success. Living legends like Faith Ringgold, Maria Pergay and Loretta Pettway Bennett all of whom produced works, both political and formal, bridging the Civil Rights Movement and the Women’s Liberation Movement, serve as present day luminaries. To look at the works of many of the contemporary artists and designers exhibited, is to view the output of those that are in the struggle presently, navigating the roles of mother and artist/designer during a global pandemic. Their paths are still unfolding. They are the lives in process, the bodies of work still undetermined. Each a link in the chain of trailblazers.”
The show is on view from May 3-29.
