Ron Arad

10 - 31 March 2023

Opera Gallery Geneva presents from 10-31 March an exhibition of recent works by one of the most coveted artists and designers of our times, Ron Arad. This exhibition features over 15 works, some of his iconic pieces such as the Big Easy or the Little Albert as well as brand new works, rethought or conceived especially for Opera Gallery. Right from the start of his career in the early 1980s’, Ron Arad forged a singular profile and a unique style for himself, blurring the boundaries between design, sculpture and architecture. He allows himself to constantly experiment without restraints of any kind. For him, "design consists in imposing one's will on materials, either to achieve a function, or for an artistic result". A vision that leads him to create true furniture-sculptures and that has put him at the forefront of contemporary design and architecture. For Opera Gallery, Arad has created a whole collection made out of colored crystalline resin, in several vibrant hues. This material allows the eye to experience a whole range of optical plays deriving from the semi-transparencies, modulations in colors and variable thicknesses inherent to it. The light either passes right through the works, either caresses their surface to reveal their reliefs, expressive curves and contours.
