The newest exhibition at New York's Moss Gallery challenges function’s place as the traditional line between art and design. The show will be held in conjunction with the Armory Art Show taking place March 3 – April 15.
Moss will present the works by Norman Hasselriis (1918-2006), a poet, publishing executive, idiosyncratic artist, who created exuberant sculptural works or ‘assemblages' from found objects. Moss also presents work by British photographer Dudley Reed, who met Hasselriis in 2004 while he was shopping for doll heads at the local flea market. Reed photographed the artist himself and approximately 50 of his assemblages. The exhibition is the first for both artists.
"Extrapolating from the male nickname ‘Art’, we have decided to name this exhibition—which we hope will contribute to an eventual acceptance of the more formal, more mature male name, ‘Arthur’," said founder Murray Moss. He has never understood the need for clarity when it comes to identifying a work as Art or Design, so he decided to avoid the issue altogether.
Other featured 'arthurists' include Christian Haas, Massimiliano Adami, Phillip Low, Julien Carretero, Dr. Haresh Lalvani, Maarten Baas, Gaetano Pesce, Tokujin Yoshioka, Norman Hasselriis and Dudley Reed, Studio Job, and Cathy McClure (in association with Edelman Arts).
