LongHouse Reserve presents The Larsen Salon Series, a Manhattan-based series of talks on design. “The Larsen Salon Series honors LongHouse’s founder Jack Lenor Larsen (1927-2020), and carries on a tradition of conversations, presentations, and lectures by designers, architects, and artists working at the intersection of art, design, and craft,” shared Director Carrie Rebora Barratt. “We’ve carefully selected speakers to engage our audiences in important dialogue.”
Salons will take place throughout the Fall and Winter, kicking off with contemporary multi-media artist Liz Collins on October 26, at 180 The Store in Tribeca. Collins works fluidly between art and design, with emphasis and expertise in textile media, including the transition of fabric into multi-dimensional forms as a method to vary the scale of her pieces to make them architectural and inviting rather than object-based. Liz will be joined in conversation by Matilda McQuaid, Curatorial Director for Cooper-Hewitt Museum.
Architect Calvin Tsao, from Tsao & McKown Architects, will conclude the series for 2023 on March 20. Salons in January and February are to be announced.
