The Louise T Blouin Institute opened in October 2006 with a solo exhibition of Light by James Turrell and aims to generate and disseminate knowledge about the arts and the science of creativity. The Foundation provides 35,000 sq ft of exhibition space and lecture facilities, and creates a platform for contemporary art and affiliated events.

DESIGN HIGH Exhibition at the Louise Blouin Foundation
25 June - 30 August 2009

The Louise Blouin Foundation is delighted to announce its partnership with Carpenters Workshop Gallery, one of the world’s leading design art dealers, in a collaborative exhibition that will feature several of the most important and innovative artists in the field of contemporary design art. Design High will specifically address the tensions that exist between craft and fine art among some of the most innovative established and emerging artists in the field, including Marc Quinn, Pablo Reinoso, Thierry Dreyfus, Vincent Dubourg and Sebastian Brajkovic. Working in an idiom that does not preclude a purpose beyond formalist or subjective aims, design art is both celebrated and dismissed for embracing some form of functionality or usefulness.
