From October 1, 2011 to March 25, 2012, LACMA will run its new exhibit “California Design, 1930-1965: “Living in a Modern Way.” The exhibit is the first major study on California mid-century modern design, and with more than 300 objects on view, this exhibit promises to be significant and eye-opening. Perhaps the most exciting installation will be the (temporarily) relocated and reassembled living room of the Charles and Ray Eames House (Pacific Palisades, 1949). The LA Times has a video clip of the packing and reassembly of the room in the LACMA gallery. To read more on the exhibition and the conservation efforts of the Eames House, go to LA Times, “Conserving the Charles and Ray Eames House” and “Charles and Ray Eames’ living room makes an interim home at LACMA”.
