Eileen Gray. Une chambre à coucher pour Monte-Carlo from Intérieurs Français, 1923. Archives Galerie Gilles Peyroulet, Paris.

Join us for a morning of presentations by leading international historians, conservators, curators, and architects who are currently investigating Eileen Gray’s highly versatile career. Better known as a furniture designer, Gray actually worked in multiple fields. This symposium will elucidate the range of her architectural projects, her pioneering role as a Parisian gallerist and as an artisan of lacquer, among other topics. It will illuminate the fascinating Parisian milieu of artists, writers, architects, and craftspeople who helped to shape Gray’s groundbreaking ideas on modernism in design and architecture.
