Housework and Other Design Challenges: Charlotte Perriand’s Modern Kitchen for the Unite d’Habitation

Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 11:30 a.m.

Special Exhibitions Gallery, third floor

This session accompanies the special exhibition Designing Modern Women 1890–1990 and, in particular, the recent acquisition of Charlotte Perriand’s innovative kitchen design, produced for Le Corbusier’s masterwork of modernist multiple housing, the Unite d’Habitation. Consider the innovations of Perriand’s design in relation to your own domestic experiences, and discuss just what made this work so important.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
