The Future of Exhibition Sponsorship

Tags: |

The LRB blog has been invited to an exclusive panel discussion at the Barbican next Thursday on ‘the Future of Kitchens’. It’s part of The Surreal House exhibition, which is disinterestedly sponsored by IKEA.

Comments on “The Future of Exhibition Sponsorship”

    Who is invited? I’d like to be there and I’m sure that pinhut and AJP Crown would relish the opportunity to air their views on the future of kitchens.

  2. A.J.P. Crown says:

    As it happens I’m quite interested in the idea of surrealist architecture, mostly because not much was ever done with it — not by architects at any rate. Aldo Rossi alluded to DiChirico in some of his drawings, but that’s as far as he went. Then there’s a pink-covered book on architecture and film by … a woman who died, whose father worked for Harold Wilson; anyway, it mentions Bunuel. Other than that… I’m a bit worried by “everything that the rational, functional Modernist house is not”, that can’t be right. I don’t see any future for kitchens. Furry teacups is all in the past.

    Thomas, is there anything wrong with IKEA sponsoring ‘The Surreal House’ or ‘The Future of Kitchens’?

    why have a panel discussion when you can have a lino discussion? or even a worktop workshop.

    And more from inside IKEA (from ‘Stealing Beauty’ by Guy Ben-Ner):

    For the one non-Guardian reader here, this works quite well with the surreal house.
