Motherhood — And the Ways In Which It Challenges Us to Create — Is At the Center of This Exhibition

The idea for Egg Collective's third "Designing Women" exhibition was born long before the pandemic struck. Back in 2018, Egg's co-founders — Hilary Petrie, Crystal Ellis, and Stephanie Beamer, along with Ellis's sister, the artist Tealia Ellis Ritter — had the idea to curate a selection of female artists and designers who also happened to be mothers, and who often worked with or chafed against the constraints of motherhood in order to create.

Think Women Are Underrepresented in the Creative Arts? This Exhibition Does Too

The Barragán-Inspired Ceramic Lights Debuting at Sight Unseen OFFSITE

“My house is my refuge, an emotional piece of architecture and not a cold piece of convenience,” the architect Luis Barragán once said. According to Moving Mountains studio founder Syrette Lew, this sentiment perfectly captures the spirit of her new collection of chairs and lights — the latter designed in collaboration with ceramicist Giselle Hicks. The installation — on view at 201 Mulberry starting next Thursday, May 17, and presented by Levi's Made & Crafted — is loosely based on the color palettes and surroundings Lew encountered on a recent trip to Barragán’s native Mexico.
