You still have time for Arad - last day at the Barbican 16th May 2010

Bold, experimental and inventive, Ron Arad defies categorisation.

This internationally acclaimed London based maverick is variously described as a designer, architect or artist. 
To celebrate, Barbican Art Gallery stages the first major exhibition in the United Kingdom of the internationally acclaimed, Ron Arad.

Ron Arad: Restless explores three decades of Arad’s designs from his early post-punk approach of assembling products from readymade parts to his exclusive and highly-polished sculptural pieces.

Featuring a dramatic exhibition design by Ron Arad Associates using the latest LED display technology, Ron Arad: Restless also includes architectural designs and immediately recognisable mass-produced items.

Highlighting the significance of experimentation, process and materials in Arad’s work, the exhibition offers a timely insight into the development of objects from initial idea and fabrication to finished design.

The exhibition at the Barbican runs until 16 May 2010
