“Need and Desire,” the new exhibit at UC Davis’ Design Museum, is curated by Rob Zinn, founder of blankblank, a Northern California design firm that works with designers and artisans to produce furniture, lighting and limited-edition art. Its collection has been exhibited around the world.
The title of this show alludes to the ambiguities Zinn sees between art and design, form and function, business and creativity, and individual and society.
The exhibit opens Monday and continues through March 16 in Cruess Hall at UCD. An opening reception and talk by Zinn is planned for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26. Admission is free.
