The Dennis Freedman Collection
April 20—August 17, 2023
64 White Street
Art director and creative force Dennis Freedman has made an incalculable contribution to visual culture and experiential fashion during his four-plus decades at W magazine and Barneys NY and later helming his namesake studio. Collaborating with the world’s foremost talents and brands, including Maison Margiela, Christian Louboutin, and Chloe, Freedman has stretched the boundaries of photography and closed the gap between fashion imagery and fine art. Behind the scenes, he’s one of the most adventurous and courageous collectors of avant-garde and experimental furniture designs, training his eye on the most ahead-of-its-time, zeitgeist-defining pieces of the last century.
Opening April 20, The Dennis Freedman Collection features over 50 notable works from the Netherlands, Italy, France, Scandinavia, Brazil, Japan, and Great Britain, celebrating the extraordinary trajectory of design from Swedish Grace of the 1920s to Dutch digital design of the 2000s. It epitomizes the illustrious collector’s critical eye, adventurous spirit, and appreciation of the avant-garde.
