The New York School of Interior Design Presents ROOMS 01: Felix Rodewaldt Exhibition
New York, New York – January 31, 2019 – The New York School of Interior Design is pleased to announce the opening of ROOMS 01: Felix Rodewaldt, on view February 1 through May 10, 2019 at NYSID Gallery, 170 East 70 Street, New York City.
ROOMS is an exhibition series established by NYSID to invite contemporary artists to present work that overlaps strongly with interior design. The mission of ROOMS is to broaden the vision of interior design students and practitioners, and introduce them to new ways of thinking about interior space and materials. The projects will encompass a variety of mediums and can be displayed in various venues across the school—they could be gallery installations, artist-curated selections from the library or archives, or two-dimensional works hung in the hallways and public spaces. It is a flexible and inventive way to familiarize NYSID students with the making process of these artists, while giving artists an opportunity to explore the design aspects of their work in more depth.
The first artist in this series, Felix Rodewaldt, has worked on interior design and architectural projects all over the world. He has been commissioned to create his structure and room defining works for restaurants, clubs, embassies and public parks. Felix's bold and geometric mural works are often made only using self-adhesive tape and house paint. He takes his cue from the proportions and shape of a room and re-orients this geometry into an immersive and bold optical field. To learn more, visit www.rodewaldt.de.
