In the Hot Seat

  • KMAC Museum 715 W Main St Louisville United States (map)

A chair is a customary offering within our shared codes of polite behavior. For designers, it is a primary object for interpreting the intersection of function and aesthetics. In contemporary artistic practice, it has become an indelible focus of creative inquiry for artists, working in a variety of media, who employ the chair for its ability to embody space, status, social conventions, personal identity, memory, family history, and other aspects of our humanity. With arms, legs, a seat, and a back, the chair can become a surrogate for the human body, reflecting the essence of a person and the lived experience.
