Ivorypress will be presenting the exhibition Zaha Hadid. Beyond Boundaries, Art and Design, as part of the annual architecture programme celebrated each autumn. The exhibition will open on September 4 th 2012. The show sets out a wide view of the artistic body of work of the architect Zaha Hadid (Baghdad, Iraq, 1950), which reflects her personal and unorthodox world-view. Hadid’s tradition-busting aesthetics are in line with such visionary figures as Leonardo da Vinci and Frederick Kiesler. Her work encapsulates in addition to the obvious: drawing, painting, reliefs, sculpture and installations, not to mention furniture and product design. In 2004, she was the first woman to be recognised with the prestigious Pritzker Award. In the words of the exhibit’s curator, Kenny Schacter, Hadid’s world-view is one in which ‘art, design, and architecture collapse into one another to reflect an all-encompassing way of life characterised by pushing and pulling the boundaries of aesthetics in every conceivable manner and form’.
