Saint Laurent Announces A New Art Exhibition To Go On Show In Los Angeles

Emma Hodgson   |   30-01-2024

Saint Laurent Rive Droite Los Angeles and Anthony Vaccarello have announced an exclusive exhibition in collaboration with Eames Office featuring seven limited-edition Plywood Sculptures by Charles and Ray Eames.

 For the first time, the spectacular limited-edition Plywood Sculpture is on public display in Los Angeles,
 the city where it was first created by the Eameses in 1943.

 An abstract, three-foot-tall organic shape,
 the moulded Plywood Sculpture is not only a beautiful work of contemporary art but also marks
 a technological breakthrough and an important milestone in 20th-century design. Charles and Ray Eames produced two of the Plywood Sculptures from the same wood and metal production tool. Both sculptures still exist today and are part of the Eames Institute of Infinite Curiosity. 

In 2021,
the Eames Office researched and re-edited the Plywood Sculpture in a limited edition of twelve. Happening at the same time as the Palm Springs Modernism Week, the exhibition at the Saint Laurent Rive Droite store in Los Angeles will feature seven numbered Plywood Sculptures, as well as related artwork by Charles and Ray Eames such as drawings, photos and the film Blacktop. 

A printed exhibition catalogue will also be available and featured sculptures will be available for sale upon request.
