Everything Old is New Again: Interpreting Modern Design
March 12 – September 30, 2017

This exhibition spotlights six decorative art objects recently given to Evergreen that were made in Europe and the United States between 1900 to 1935 in the Art Nouveau through Art Deco styles. Each object achieves something very rebellious for its time and exemplifies the stylistic break with tradition that members of such modern international design movements sought. The installation juxtaposes the historical with a single contemporary work chosen by the student curator, further emphasizing each generation’s desire to be original and unique.
