Ettore Sottsass Exhibition, Trieste.
An exhibition celebrating the multifaceted artistic production of the Austrian-born Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass--who recently passed away--is currently on view in Trieste. The exhibition, titled "Vorrei Sapere Perche?" ("I would like to know why"), covers the breadth of the work of Sotsass, who remains best known in the US as the founder of the Milan-based design collective Memphis. It is divided in seven spaces corresponding to seven different media/disciplines: design, architecture, photography, jewelery design, drawing, ceramics and glass-work.
Organized by Terredarte, the exhibition runs through March 2, 2008
