Modern Eye

Craft and Design in Canada, 1940-1980

July 22, 2011 - July 22, 2011

Modernism dominated craft and design in Canada from the 1940’s to the 1970’s. This exhibition explores the modernist viewpoints held by Canada’s most prominent designers and craft artists working in this period.Included will be over 150 pieces of furniture, ceramics, and household items that best illustrate modernist preoccupation with form, colour, texture, experimentation, functionality, and honest use of materials. Items chosen reflect an interest in new materials and techniques and an awareness of contemporary trends in abstract art and Modern architecture.

Guest curated by Allan Collier, The Modern Eye borrows from local and national collections and is accompanied by an illustrated exhibition catalogue.
