Norman Foster Cartier Exhibition

Norman Foster and Cartier in Motion at the Design Museum

Cartier in Motion is the perfect fit for Foster who has a boyish fascination with gadgets, vintage cars, aircraft, modernist art, watches and speed in general. The exhibition places Cartier – its timepieces, its jewellery, but also its founders and design heroes – in the wider context of history.

James Lee Byars The Golden Tower by Richard Ivey

James Lee Byars The Golden Tower
Venice Biennale 2017

James Lee Byars’s grandest work The Golden Tower has arrived in Venice, and it is safe to say it’s making quite the statement so far. Located right next to the Palazzo Cini, the artwork attracts Biennale 2017 visitors and city wanderers alike. Byars first fantasised about making the luxurious looking piece (which is more than 65 feet tall) back in 1976 and showed it in numerous iterations, yet never before has it been displayed outside in full scale.
