Next up, Chicago, the second sale in Wright’s Living Contemporary Series… I’ll be sitting on my hands figuratively speaking. The catalog describes the curated sale as combining “remarkable artworks and notable design to create a compelling and sophisticated environment. Works by Ron Arad and Marc Newson will be sold alongside artworks by George Grosz and David Hockney. Other highlights include a Feather stool by Shiro Kuramata, a dining set by Gerald Summers and a lounge chair by Franco Campo and Carlo Graffi.”
We have highlighted but a few of the “remarkable” works, including Tejo Remy’s 1991 work for Droog titled “You Can’t Lay Down Your Memories.” Also represented, Kwangho Lee’s disarming 2009 “Hanging Light” and Antonio Volpe’s “Rocking Chair” created in 1922. And lastly today, an ink and watercolor piece on paper completed in 1997 by Marcel Dzama. Darn this down economy!
