Eileen Gray: An Architect-Designer in France

Eileen Gray — on view at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery from February 29 through July 12, 2020 — is the first in-depth exhibition in the United States to examine the total oeuvre of designer and architect Eileen Gray (1878-1976), who was Irish by birth but spent most of her career in France.

The exhibition, curated by Cloé Pitiot, a curator at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, is comprised of approximately 200 works, including never before publicly exhibited furniture, lacquer works, architectural drawings, and archival materials. The exhibition offers new insights about Gray’s long and distinguished career that began in the early 1900s and continued until her death in 1976, with particular attention to her practice as an architect. Rarely seen architectural drawings and photographs elucidate how Gray designed her most famous house, E 1027, and other architectural projects.
