September 6, 2014 – December 1, 2014

FORUM GALLERY

Sebastian658x234

In his first solo museum exhibition, the multi-faceted designer and artist Sebastian Errazuriz challenges audiences with work that is lyrical, macabre, bizarre, and eloquent.  

Through found and repurposed objects, unexpected interventions, and meticulously crafted interactive furniture, Errazuriz surprises, provokes, and engages at every turn, asking viewers to rethink the everyday, to confront the transience of life, and question the status quo. A desk lamp resurrects a discarded taxidermy duck; a floating coffin with an outboard motor offers an escape from life with style and flair; a cabinet guards its contents with armor of bamboo spikes; and folding chairs, painted with the slogans of Wall Street protestors, carry the messages of the 99% into the homes of the art collectors in the 1%. Not to be missed, this exhibition will reveal Errazuriz’s wide-ranging talent and his ability to be simultaneously shocking and irreverent, yet profoundly sensitive and humbling.  


This exhibition is organized by Rachel Delphia, The Alan G. and Jane A. Lehman Curator of Decorative Arts and Design. It is the 73rd installment of Carnegie Museum of Art’s Forum series.
