Opening this fall, Women + Design: New Works is an exhibition composed of recent works by seven contemporary female designers including Lebanese designer, Najla El Zein who’s design Seduction, Pair 01 will go on view at the Dallas Museum of Art this October and will join the museum’s permanent collection of contemporary design.
International in origin and diverse in their media, forms, and objectives, this dynamic group of emerging and mid-career female designers is part of the Museum’s desire to serve as an incubator of contemporary talent, all of these works will join its growing collection of contemporary design.
Seduction, Pair 01 is part of the Seduction series presented with Friedman Benda. Seduction portrays stages of proximity between two entities, from introversion to connection, rejection to desire. While entirely hand-sculpted from stone, the abstract forms illustrate the emotional dialogue of the different interactions through the understanding of their contexts, materiality and gestures.
