Free with suggested museum admission
As part of the in-gallery conversation series centered on the MCA exhibition Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: Bivouac, designers Stephanie and Bruce Tharp investigate Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s use of color and materials and the effects upon the interior spaces their objects inhabit. This talk explores how the Bouroullecs’ work thrives with carefully chosen colors, high quality finishes, textural surfaces, and material used in honest and direct ways. Stephanie and Bruce Tharp are award-winning, Chicago-based product designers and educators. Their practice includes licensing furniture, furnishings, and consumer product ideas to companies.
