Set within the Central Hall of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the exhibition,
L’intime, de la chambre aux réseaux sociaux will study the subject
of intimacy over the centuries. With a focus on how intimacy has changed
the world of decorative arts, from the design of bedrooms, beds, armchairs
and sofas, to dressing screens, vanities, bathtubs, and connected devices,
the exhibition will explore a diverse range of objects all transformed
by society’s relationship with, and acceptance of, the idea of intimacy.
Broaching topics often considered taboo, L’intime, de la chambre aux
réseaux sociaux invites visitors to engage with the artistic contributions
of skilled craftsmen, artists, and designers from the 18th to the 21st centuries,
including Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre Bonnard, Adolf Loos, the Bouroullec
brothers, Eileen Gray, Gaetano Pesce, Superstudio, and Archizoom.
