“Blow Up” curated by Felix Burrichter at Friedman Benda gallery. 

For five years, the Friedman Benda gallery has hosted a guest-curated exhibition. This year it tapped Felix Burrichter, the founder and editor of Pin-up, an architecture and design magazine, to put together “Blow Up,” an exhibit that explores scale and the domestic ideal of a dollhouse that’s been blown up to full size. It features important designs from the Seventies and Eighties created by Wendell Castle, Gaetano Pesce and Shiro Kuramata, along with commissioned pieces with artists, architects and designers including Telfar Clemens, Sarah Ortmeyer and Rade Petrasevic.
