DEEDS CALENDAR: A CHAIR AND YOU. Thierry Barbier-Mueller Collection in GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig | until 06.10.2024

With A Chair and You, the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts is showing from Wednesday 8 May 2024 one of the world’s most important private collections of chairs by over 100 artists, designers and architects from the 1960s to the present day. This extraordinary show is one of the highlights of 2024, year in which the museum celebrates its 150th anniversary. Since the late 1990s, Geneva-based entrepreneur and collector Thierry Barbier-Mueller brought together a large number of innovative and unusual chairs with a sculptural character that goes far beyond the usual typology. The presentation of around 150 chairs was entrusted to the renown American artist, director and designer Robert Wilson. A Chair and You offers the visitor an “opera” in four acts and just as many stages – with a scenography in which the history of art and design from the 1960s to the present day is told through Thierry Barbier-Mueller’s unique collection.
