Our Materials Spotlight series is an intimate gallery program that is part gallery tour, part seminar. Focusing each month on a different material that Eileen Gray used in her work, this program is led by a world expert, who will highlight key aspects of specific works in the Gallery and situation those works in a larger context and lineage.
