UMMA Table & Objects
Exhibition Discussion & Opening Reception: Friday, March 14, 7pm
Florencia Pita and SCI-Arc Director Eric Owen Moss discuss the exhibition
The SCI-Arc Library presents an installation of Florencia Pita’s work, originally commissioned by Museum Director Joseph Rosa for the University of Michigan Museum of Art. The installation explores the provocations and intersections of digital technology, material experimentation, and ornament in the work of Argentina-born, Los Angeles-based architect and designer. It traces the evolution of Pita’s design ideology through installation pieces, urban design, tableware, furniture, and architecture, as well as small adornments. Her boldly colored works draw from literary, art, and biological sources; employ cutting-edge architectural fabrication techniques; and cross borders of visual art, architecture, and design.
The works on view where displayed at the University of Michigan Museum of Art from January 19 to June 16, 2013, in an exhibition titled: Florencia Pita/ FPmod. The Umma Table and several objects here commissioned by Museum Director Joseph Rosa for Florencia Pita’s first retrospective exhibition.
