Collect 2019 exhibitor
In 2009, 20th-century design dealer Todd Merrill launched Studio Contemporary, an exhibition-based programme representing an international group of established and emerging contemporary designers and artists.
Although the Studio Contemporary programme presents a diverse group of artistic styles, disciplines and media, the artists all share an underlying drive to push the materials that comprise their works to their absolute aesthetic limits. Their dynamic, unique and frequently groundbreaking works contribute to today’s increasingly relevant grey area between art and design.
Works by Studio Contemporary designers and artists have entered the collections of major private and public patrons and prestigious museums including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; the Museum of Art and Design in New York; the High Museum in Atlanta; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; and the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
