La Gardo Tackett
Eames and VKG
It was a two LTR kinda weekend. Plus, Raul Coronel and Kenji Fujita.
Coincidentally, Oskar worked as motion picture cartoon effects animator at Disney right around the same time KEM Weber designed the new offices. Theoretically, he could have been using a Weber desk when he was working on Fantasia.
Mathematica, by The Eames Office; L.A. 84 Olympic pins, by former Eames Office member, Deborah Sussman; and Three Modern Masters catalogue of an exhibition with Bengston and Ruscha that was held at the Frank Lloyd Wright space. I found the poster for the same exhibition last week.
It probably isn't a surprise that the Mingei museum has a fantastic collection of Mingei artifacts. This included a number of recent acquisitions. The exhibit was curated by the museum's director, Rob Sidner.
Soetsu Yanagi’s writings are on the walls. He, along with Shoji Hamada and Kawai Kawai Kanjiro, are the fathers of the Japanese Mingei movement.
