Structures & Surfaces: The Furniture of Poul Kjaerholm & Selected Artwork

15 December 2007 - 2 February 2008



This simultaneous exhibition curated by Michael Sheridan at Sean Kelly Gallery and R Gallery includes both Kjaerholm furniture and contemporary art and will explore the inherent relationship between the two visual entities.

The exhibition coincides with Sean Kelly Gallery and R Gallery’s exclusive release of four pieces of limited edition furniture hand built in Denmark by exceptional, classically trained Danish craftsmen under the close supervision of the Kjaerholm family. They will include the iconic PK 12 chair in braided leather, the PK 50 conference table as well as the Reol Modular Bookcase – never commercially produced during Kjaerholm’s lifetime – and the Aluminum Tripod Chair, originally produced in extremely limited quantities.

The exhibition also celebrates the publication of the first-ever catalogue raisonné on Kjaerholm’s oeuvre researched and written by Michael Sheridan and published by Gregory R. Miller & Co.
