Friedman Benda is pleased to present Wendell Castle: A New Vocabulary, a solo art exhibition of the late American designer Wendell Castle (1932-2018).
Throughout a celebrated career spanning six decades, Castle introduced new ways of looking at, thinking about, and making art furniture.
In doing so, he created a new sculptural vocabulary that defied categorization and became the cornerstone of his practice. This contemporary art exhibition – Wendell Castle: A New Vocabulary brings together rare, early, formative pieces with key works from the last decade of Castle’s long career, during which time he realized a body of work of critical importance and boundless ambition.
Both periods are represented by seminal works that are exemplary achievements of the decades that bookend the unparalleled oeuvre of one of America’s most iconic figures in art sculpture, modern art and design.
This exhibition of contemporary design explores Wendell Castle’s legacy of constant reinvention that defined his approach and allowed him to achieve inventive forms and sculptural volumes. We hope to have left you excited to go visit this art exhibition.
