Alexander Girard and Textile Design at Mid-Century

Alexander Girard and Textile Design at Mid-Century

Monday, May 22, 2017 to Friday, September 1, 2017

Postwar textile design in the US was eclectic and robust, with designers such as Dorothy Liebes, Charles and Ray Eames, and Alexander Girard capturing the energy and ambition of a country undergoing enormous growth and development. Girard brought an iconoclast's eye and an architect's training to the interiors and furnishings he would design, including the colorful and exuberant textiles that were widely influential. This exhibition focuses on works by Girard from TMFD's historic textiles collection, and on examples of work by related designers that reflect Girard's impact.
