Pioneers of modernist design, Charles and Ray Eames are considered two of America’s most important and influential designers. Not only did they leave an indelible mark upon contemporary design, but they also significantly helped shape the aesthetics of the second half of the 20th century and are responsible for many of its iconic designs. Polymathic visionaries, they made groundbreaking contributions to the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, graphic design, film, and photography, creating work that remains culturally vital and commercially popular today—work that continues to inspire mid-century-mod amateurs and aficionados alike. Such lifelong partners and collaborators were they as a husband-and-wife team that retrospectives rarely isolate one from the other. Ray Eames: In the Spotlight, however, is an intimate exposé of Ray’s world, featuring letters, notes, sketches, paintings, photographs, process drawings, furniture, films and collections evidencing the scope of Ray’s interests. Drawing attention to her interaction with key people, places and institutions, the exhibition concentrates on the iterative, hands-on process that the Eames’ were famous for, highlighting Ray’s unique methods, disciplines, and tools that further confirm her durable imprint and lasting legacy.
