CEU EILEEN GRAY: NONCONFORMIST
1:00PM | Ground Floor Gallery
Nearly forgotten in her own time and re-discovered in the 1960’s, Eileen Gray is now regarded as one of the most influential designers of the Twentieth Century. This CEU presentation provides a high-level overview of Eileen Gray’s life and work, which spans different eras and aesthetics, as well as her lasting impact on Modernism. Of particular interest is the story of a house name “E1027”: a building defaced by Le Corbusier, used as a target practice by German soldiers, and which later became the site of murder, graffiti and neglect.
Presented by: Adam Cook of Shop.
