LIVE FROM NEW YORK - Moss - Moroso

New York - May 15th – Moss – Moroso openings. At Moss an exhibition entitled, Poetic License, deliberate deviations from normally applicable rules and practices. Design entrepreneur, Murray Moss greets Ruth Shuman and legendary designer and artist, Gaetano Pesce.

Seen at Moss.    Moss presents a gallery-wide celebration of rule breaking, envelope pushing and taking chances. The work of each of the designers featured in Poetic License personifies the attribute by which the exhibition is defined. Each pushes the boundary of what’s been done before in a variety of media, and each invents new forms, new processes, new methodologies. Among the designers featured: Fernando and Humberto Campana, Michele De Lucchi, Mathias Bengtsson, Oskar Zieta, Francois Roche and others.
