Pièces Meublés 1995/2016
This book illustrates the two innovative exhibitions of Pièces-Meublés held in 1995 and 2016, curated by New York art critic Bob Nickas at the invitation of Galerie Patrick Seguin. Introduced with a substantial preface by Nickas, Pièces-Meublés is abundantly illustrated with in-situ photographs, as well as archival images for the furniture and architectural components of the shows. This publication compares contemporary art with the leading creations of 20th century design. 20 artists were invited to select a piece of furniture either to interact with their work or to integrate it with a new work. Participating artists include John M Armleder, Richard Artschwager, Bertrand Lavier, Louise Lawler, Adam McEwen, Albert Oehlen, Haim Steinbach, Rudolf Stingel, Franz West.
