Tectonic Plates Exhibition to Debut at Forty One Madison
March 17, 2010,
NEW YORK-Art and industry will collide in an exhibition of 200 fine china plates, presented in a gallery format, on the 14th floor of Forty One Madison during the Spring New York Tabletop Show.
The exhibition, called Tectonic Plates, is organized and presented by The New English and will be on view April 13-16.
"Our aim is to inject a new look and feeling into the world of tabletop and rethink ceramics for a new, media and design savvy market, thirsting for new products," Bishop said. "We are delighted to introduce this exhibition to the North American tableware industry in 'the' venue for tableware, Forty One Madison."
Noting this is the first time Forty One Madison has ever held an art exhibition during the Tabletop Market, Laurie Burns, senior vice president and director of the building said, "We invited Paul to bring this inspiring, fresh, often whimsical, gallery-style presentation to New York for the spring show. I predict it will generate lots of 'buzz' among everyone in our business, from retailers and industry colleagues to the media and design students that will be visiting from the tri-state area during Market."
