Press Release

Art et Industrie
A New York Movement: 1977-1999

Magen H Gallery is pleased to present the exclusive retrospective and premiere of the publication, Art et Industrie—a New York Movement. For over two decades, Art et Industrie was recognized as an epicenter for an emerging radical artistic movement that blurred the lines between fine and applied art. Art et Industrie was the first to exhibit Studio Alchemia, Shiro Takahama, and Ron Arad, but ultimately found its lifeblood in a core group of artists with a uniquely American voice.

The retrospective will feature a collection of over 60 works by artists such as Forrest Myers, Terence Main, Jim Cole, Howard Meister, Carmen Spera, James Hong, James Evanson, Richard Snyder, Rafael Barrios, Michele Oka Doner, Laura Main, Paul Ludick, Dan Friedman, Alex Locadia, among others. The collection of works gives expression to the significant and historical relationship with the downtown New York Zeitgeist and the global forum of art and design.
