Here's a press release from Zaha Hadid Architects:


Zaha Hadid. Beyond Boundaries, Art and Design
at Ivorypress Space, Madrid

The exhibition showcases the work of Zaha Hadid, reflecting her research that challenges established conventions. In addition to drawings, paintings, reliefs and installations, Hadid’s furniture and product design will also be exhibited.

The exhibition’s curator, Kenny Schachter describes Hadid’s world-view as one in which ‘art, design, and architecture collapse into one another to reflect an all-encompassing way of life characterised by pushing and pulling the boundaries of aesthetics in every conceivable manner and form. What is so inspiring and intriguing about the astounding output of Zaha Hadid, is the imaginative, inventive and unquenchable expression of curiosity and creativity. Hadid defies pigeonholing in a world increasingly defined by uniformity.’

The MAXXI: National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, Italy and the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympic Games are excellent demonstrations of Hadid’s quest for complex, fluid space. Previous seminal buildings such as the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati and the Guangzhou Opera House in China have also been hailed as architecture that transforms our ideas of the future with new spatial concepts and bold, visionary forms.

From their London-based studio, Zaha Hadid Architects adopts the same creative approach with regard to objects such as purses, cutlery, jewellery, decorative objects, or furniture, such as the Zephyr sofa or the Liquid Glacial table. These two pieces, along with a wide selection of works, will comprise the exhibition which suggests ‘a very democratic conception, non-hierarchical in structure’ explains Schachter.

    With Hadid, the paintings are so much better than the buildings.

  • Hilla

    I agree. The buildings, the furniture, all of her 3D objects lack the character of fascinating utopia that the paintings create. I wish she concentrated on painting!

    Too bad all that parametric stuff has washed away the freshness of early paintings (and buildings).

    Zaha Hadid Architects have washed away the freshness of early Zaha's paintings.

    Paintings = no income. Buildings = visions made reality. No-one cares if some people love it or not. Zaha Hadid Architects are quite successful. Who can deny that? Nobody! Keep on building please!

    She needs to get off the CAD and spray paint some freight trains. Beautiful.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Hadid's built work is really tiresome now. She is only popular because the media are in love with her.

    Even though I don’t usually Admire Zaha Hadid’s school, I find myself unconsciously astonished by her unlimited innovation.
