Memphis-Milano: 1980s Italian Design -- Exhibition at Dixon Gallery & Gardens

Join the Midsouth Italian Club at the Dixon Gallery on July 12 at 10.30 am

A member of the curatorial staff will serve as our own personal docent. She will provide a guided tour of the gallery, speak to us about the exhibit and answer any questions we may have. The cost is $5 per person.

A retrospective look at the flamboyant and colorful furniture and household objects produced by the Memphis collective between 1981 and 1988. Based in Milan, these iconoclastic architects and designers helped define the look of a generation. Memphis-Milano includes over 150 iconic works that date from its founding in 1981 through 1988, when the group disbanded. By then, Memphis was already part of design history. Sponsored by Karen and Dr. Preston Dorsett; Liz and Tommy Farnsworth; and Nancy and Steve Morrow.
