The Eileen Gray exhibition is on permanent display at the Decorative Arts & History site, Collins Barracks. The exhibition posthumously realised one of Gray’s last ambitions – to have her work brought back to Ireland. Regarded as one of the most influential 20th Century designers and architects, the exhibition includes such important items as the adjustable chrome table and the non-conformist chair. The exhibition also values Gray on a personal level, including family photographs, her lacquering tools, and personal ephemera. It illustrates an account of her professional development from art student in London and Paris to mature, innovative architect. The exhibition honours the memory of Eileen Gray, modern self-taught architect and designer.
Location: National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Second Floor, South Block, Benburb St, Dublin 7.
