The exhibition explores ways in which both Robert Stadler and Isamu Noguchi probe — and sometimes undermine — concepts such as ‘art’ and ‘design,’ ‘functional’ and ‘aesthetic,’ ‘material’ and ‘space’. As implied by its title, “Solid Doubts” is intended to make us think anew rather than to make pronouncements. Indeed, ambiguity is central to each of the four installations. Together, they will create a critique of traditional notions of the relationship between furniture and sculpture, among other ideas.
