1900: Adornment for the Home and Body / by Anna Telcs

Gallery Talk with Anna Telcs

Happy to have learned more about the incredible pieces in this exhibit curated by Jo-Anne Birnie-Dansker. The connectivity of industrial design, architecture and fashion collide during the Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau. From the Industrial Revolution onward, fashion became industrialized and just like the craft-makers of today reacting to a digital world, the artists of the Fin de Ciecle tried to bring beauty and function to everyday objects; raising 'craft' items to a high art. Thanks to The Frye Museum for letting me come and share my thoughts. — Anna Telcs
