Design Is Not Art: Functional Objects from Donald Judd to Rachel Whiteread

September 10, 2004 – February 27, 2005

Museum: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: 2nd Floor

This exhibition broadens the relationship between art and design by featuring functional 3-D design objects by some of the most influential Minimalist and post-Minimalist artists of the 20th century, including Donald Judd, Richard Tuttle, Joel Shapiro, Scott Burton, and Rachel Whiteread. On view are distinctive design works, including furniture, lighting, rugs and table settings, which share the limited palette and elegant simple forms characteristic of these artists.
