"You might say Fully Furnished is move-in ready"

Fully Furnished brings 40 pieces to the spotlight including Weissglass's newest body of work, a series of paintings where antique tables, sofas, chairs and wash basin stands twirl through richly colored landscapes in a playful and sometimes cacophonous dance. While figures and flowers also populate the scenes, it is these furniture elements which steal the show, asserting themselves even through the richly textured and colorful terrain which surrounds, often dwarfing the people who attempt to alight, climb or
straddle them. Emerging from the homebound period of the pandemic, these quirky and exuberant works celebrate the quotidian and, through the artist's vision, just as an innovative designer can do with a chair or table, transform what is familiar into a vision both magical and extraordinary.

“You might say this show is move-in ready. Come and pull up a chair - but notjust any chair! - and take in the playful splendor of Weissglass's latest work!"

Some of the show's other highlights, displayed in conversation with Weissglass’s pieces, include an original bamboo and wicker chair used on the iconic Rick's Café set in the film "Casablanca", tables and chairs from the Collections of Wallace Stevens, Igor Stravinsky, Ringo Starr, Andy Warhol, Rudolf Nureyev and the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. Visitors may expect to see a wooden Candelabra Sconce designed by Jean Cocteau for Igor Stravinsky, a door handle designed by Fernand Leger, drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., Hans Wegner and Jean-Charles Delafosse and original pieces designed by Jean Prouvé, John Baldessari, Giancarlo Piretti, Maison Dominique, Alessandro Mendini, Georges Jouve and Tony Duquette.
