Krueck + Sexton — Reflections: From There to Here — Chicago, USA — 9 SEP - 28 OCT 2017
Volume Gallery, 1709 W Chicago Ave
Volume Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Krueck + Sexton. REFLECTIONS focuses on works — specifically, chairs from these 1980s commissions, which propelled Krueck + Sexton’s career. Larger projects, ranging in scale, followed from restoring Crown Hall to larger buildings like Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago, as well as numerous projects around the U.S. and Europe. Central to REFLECTIONS is the Lounge Chair. Originally designed for the Weinstein commission, this piece is being realized for the first time. Fabricated by the same metal craftsmen that were responsible for the production of all of the furniture from the 1980s, the Lounge Chair is a beautiful example of Krueck + Sexton’s unique approach to juxtaposing a cool material like polished stainless steel with the bronze metallic leather.
