Landscapes of Design: Women at the Heart of Domaine de Boisbuchet

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review

Abstract

With this exhibition, Frac Centre-Val de Loire invites you to discover the exceptional collections of Domaine de Boisbuchet. Created in Charente in 1989, this research and mediation institute brings together each year professionals and amateurs from all over the world to experiment with applied design in all its forms, from furniture to fashion, from architecture to landscape, and from urban planning to social organisation. Around the fundamental questions of the current roles of design, the exhibition relates the works of 20th-century pioneers with those of contemporary women who have imagined new practices in the Boisbuchet workshops. Here, the idealism of classical modernism stands alongside everyday rural creations with a commitment to the common good, in search of a more ethical relationship with nature.
