Gadens’ Brisbane reception was transformed with a vibrant exhibition that explores Californian style.
The colourful installation was curated in celebration of Gadens’ sponsorship of Queensland Art Gallery’s recent exhibition, California Design 1930–1965: Living in a Modern Way.
From October 2013- February 2014, visitors to Gadens’ reception area were treated to a visual feast of California-inspired pieces and modernist Australian design objects, including a Harley Davidson motorcycle, a collection of original modernist chairs, and a 1965 Rickenbacker electric guitar and 1960 Fender Jazzmaster. Also included in the exhibition were several pieces by Australian artists including: Anna Carey’s fictional reconstructions of distinctive houses and motels built in the fifties and sixties, characterised by their ice-cream colours, mid-century styling and Athena Thebus’ “Always Sunny”.
