For the inaugural iteration of Object & Thing, Blum & Poe presents small works formed from obsidian and bronze by Alma Allen, ceramics dating back to the 1970s by J.B. Blunk, and fibre work by Françoise Grossen.
Object & Thing reimagines the art and design fair concept, by bringing together both disciplines through a focus on the object. As an exhibition over the first weekend in May in Brooklyn, and through a corresponding e-commerce site, Object & Thing presents object-based 20th and 21st century works from leading international art and design galleries. The exhibition will be complemented by a gathering of select design boutiques selling functional and decorative wares at lower price points in the Shop. Through these varied formats, Object & Thing will provide a shoppable, enriching, and accessible experience for the seasoned art and design collector as well as casual buyer.
