Furniture Meets its Maker
Glenn Adamson, Essay by Gary Michael Dault
Gord Peteran, an artist living in Toronto, has been designing site-specific works of public art and furniture for the past 25 years. His innovative work has been shown in many exhibitions in the U.S. and Canada. Peteran describes woodworking and metalworking as his "paints and brushes. They possess the appropriate physical resistance and wield the kind of sensual, visual impact that allow my investigations to become real." This book catalogs the first large exhibit of his work, traveling from Milwaukee to four other museums in the U.S. and Canada.
Glenn Adamson is head of graduate studies in the Research Department of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and former adjunct curator at the Milwaukee Art Museum. He is author of Industrial Strength Design: How Brooks Stevens Shaped Your World. Gary Michael Dault is art critic for the Toronto Globe and Mail.
