Bertoia Unbound: An Exhibition of Harry Bertoia’s Sculptures and Artworks will take place May 14-24 at the DORMA Americas Design Center, 1040 Avenue of the Americas, 22nd Floor, in New York City. The exhibition is a part of the citywide NYCxDESIGN program.
The Center, in collaboration with Arenson Office Furnishings, will present a display of Mr. Bertoia’s most compelling works, including some of his brilliant sound art pieces.
From the beginning of his career in 1940 until its culmination in the late 1970s, Mr. Bertoia was, fundamentally, a sculptor. He was many other things, too—furniture designer, painter, jeweler—but all are based in his ability to think and visualize in three dimensions. The collection assembled for Bertoia Unbound presents the work of this seminal 20th century figure in all its extraordinary variety and originality.
Attendance at the show is free, by appointment only. Contact the center at 646-574-7464 or designctr(at)dorma-usa(dot)com.
