Decorative Arts Calendar of Events: January

By Objectsnotpaintings

Happy New Year to all! January is a sleepy month in the arts world but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to see or do. The annual Winter Antiques Show is a highlight of the season and I am happy to report that the Bard Graduate Center (BGC) is back on the map after undergoing renovations.

Objects of Exchange: Social and Material Transformation on the Late Nineteenth-Century Northwest Coast on view at the BGC Galleries, January 26-April 17.
The exhibition, a collaboration between the BGC and Les Arts Décoratifs-musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris, is the first to bring cloisonné from this renowned French collection together with objects from important public collections in the United States, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Phoenix Art Museum, and the Springfield Museums, Massachusetts. Cloisonné examines the technique in China from the end of the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368) to the end of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911). The curator of the exhibition is Béatrice Quette of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs
