Simon Lee Gallery is proud to announce an artistic exchange with the Parisian design gallery, Kreo, which boasts a distinguished collection of limited edition furniture, lighting and objects by internationally renowned designers. Simon Lee Gallery will be inhabiting the Galerie Kreo space, presenting a selection of artworks by some of our own celebrated artists, in a playful exhibition that will re-contextualise the works and question the perceived boundaries between art and design. In a light-hearted nod to Galerie Kreo and the exchange, we will present object based works with utilitarian undertones in the context of a design environment to create a mischievous and original exhibition.
