Carla Tolomeo : Beyond the Visual | Exhibition & Talk
In conjunction with Downtown Design Fair OBLONG will be hosting a pop-up solo exhibition featuring Italian artist Carla Tolomeo.
Carla Tolomeo acquires an array of skills ranging from painting, engraving, sculpture and ceramics. Later in her career Tolomeo began to focus on the philosophy of “a mutation, in a transformation from any object to an object of art, starting from the most banal and domestic furnishing element: the Chair” – giving her recognition as the “Lady of Chairs”.
Along with the opening of the exhibition there is a panel discussion at 7pm, with the following participants: Medy Navani (Architect & Interior Designer), Nisrine El Lababidi (Stylist & Interior Designer) and Alya El Ghfeli (Interior and Product Design) on a discussion about the connection between art and design.
