CANADIAN DESIGN ARCHIVES:
TREASURES FROM THE DESIGN EXCHANGE COLLECTION
November 7, 2016 – January 8, 2017
Design at Riverside Gallery
Design at Riverside presents two exhibitions showcasing iconic Canadian designed and manufactured furniture and housewares from the Permanent Collection of the Design Exchange. Curator Esther E. Shipman has focused most of her selections on vintage mid-century modern designs, including several originating from Waterloo Region. In addition, the gallery features Classic Plastics, a wonderful light-hearted exhibition emphasizing Canadian fascination with, and innovation in, the realm of plastics design. This is the first destination for this travelling exhibition curated by DX staff members Tara Akitt and Simon Letourneau.
