Statement Chairs is an ode to the experimental chair, the unexpected chair, the activist chair, and the chair in art. It brings together more than one hundred surprising chairs that are progressive in material, technological or social terms. Designers, artists and users talk about the many forms and meanings of this ubiquitous seating object. We show more than a hundred surprising chairs that broaden our horizons, raise questions, and expose social issues.
There are also works by Anna Aagaard Jensen, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Mina Abouzahra, Joseph Kosuth and Victor Sonna among others.
