Hedge in collaboration with Friedman Benda Presents Not Furniture : Forrest Myers
Hedge, in collaboration with Friedman Benda in New York, presents an installation of dynamic new wire works by Forrest Myers, featuring his latest designs alongside significant career highlights that will occupy the entire gallery, on view at Hedge from October 8th to November 8th. Above: King and Queen.
During the 1960s Myers became a member of the Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) collective and collaborated with artists and scientists on many notable projects. In 1973 Myers’ constructed one of his most famous sculptures, “The Wall,” often referred to as the “Gateway to Soho.” Above: Manifold. Below: Black Tuffet
For more than 40 years, Myers’ work has expanded the functional vocabulary of sculpture through his explorations with the inherent properties of metal and materiality. In his most recent body of work, Myers has drawn inspiration from the landscape of his Pennsylvania farm, producing new work rooted in his signature motif, but incorporating fresh forms and materials, a look that is more dense, wide, and free of limits.

Bringing the Design = Art Movement to San Francisco, Hedge’s Not Furniture exhibition series concentrates on Artists and Designers whose vision is pushing the definition of furniture design beyond its conventional perception, blurring the boundaries between art and design.
Hedge was founded in 2003 by Steven Volpe and Roth Martin. The gallery specializes in a highly edited personal vision of 20th and 21st century design, encompassing furniture, objects and art. The common thread of this vision is the search to find new relationships, amongst ever evolving acquisitions, from the past, present and future. Above: No Evil Bench. Below: Medium Black Cube
