Eileen Gray: Why Now?

I had the honor to host four extraordinary women for a conversation at the New York School of Interior Design, which I called “Eileen Gray: Why Now?” Now this conversation is available to watch online (below). Jennifer Goff, Curator of Furniture, Silver, and the Eileen Gray Collection at the National Museum of Ireland; CloĆ© Pitiot, an architect, educator in the history of decorative arts at the University Paris Pantheon-Sorbonne, and the design curator at the National Museum of Modern Art – Centre Georges Pompidou; Sandra Gering, fonder of Sandra Gering Inc, a gallery dedicated to contemporary art, and founder of the Friends of E.1027, an organization devoted to raising funds for the restoration and preservation of the modernist villa; and Adriana Friedman, Director of famed DeLorenzo Gallery, Adriana Friedman is responsible for both acquisitions and sales. Considered an industry expert and leading dealer of French Art Deco, she as dealt with extraordinarily large number of pieces by Gray. I called this event Eileen Gray, Why Now? To explore the sudden interest in the women who is considered one of the most important and talented designers of the 20th century.
