Wrong Chairs : The Peter Reyner Banham Fellow Exhibition
April 12 - May 8, 2013
Exhibition Venue : Hayes Annex A, Room 1
The Peter Reyner Banham Fellow Exhibition hosted by the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning presents seven dining chairs by Thomas Kelley. Adapted from John Kassay’s drawings of 18th- and 19th-century Windsor chairs, the built set examines a medley of design what-not-to-do’s. Wrong Chairs pushes the visuality of illusions beyond basic trompe l’oeil styling and toward a projective form of vision, or cunning sight, that embraces visual error as both intuition and method.
*Free of charge and open to the public
Featuring: Thomas Kelley, the School of Architecture and Planning’s 2012-13 Banham Fellow.
