Show synopsis Contemporary artist Andrea Zittel's A-Z Enterprise is an investigation into all aspects of daily life--including shelter, furniture and clothing, which she designs. Architect Marcel Breuer said of his 1966 Modern design for New York's Whitney Museum, "It should transform the vitality of the street into the sincerity and profundity of art." Charting the reciprocal relationship between art and design, this fascinating volume features paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, digital animations, interiors and furniture by 68 artists, designers and architects, including Caspar David Friedrich, Henry van de Velde, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Zaha Hadid, Erwan Bouroullec and Tobias Rehberger. It highlights a trend, from Romanticism through the present, that has artists functioning as designers or architects while architects and designers are influenced by art.
