Pop Up Art exhibition
A PIECE OF FURNITURE | Act 1
19.11.21 - 26.11.21
Opening Fri, Nov 19, 6 p.m.
a Piece of Furniture is an online platform created in 2020 by Italian Berlin-based artists Davide Zucco
and Federico Maddalozzo. Born out of a common interest in the practice of many artists making their
own furniture (for their homes, studios, as a hobby, as part of their practice or as the practice itself),
the project focuses on investigating how art and furniture infuence and inform one another.
The platform is divided into two sections: “Research” focuses on the relationships between art and
furniture, while “Furniture” ofers unique pieces made by artists we admire and have invited to
participate in our project. These works are made specifcally for a Piece of Furniture and are available
The exhibition “Act 1”, launched at the outset of the pandemic, presents our research to the public and
traces the community that has developed around the project.
The exhibition details works created since the launch of the platform including artworks by artists
involved in the “Research” aspect of a Piece of Furniture, ofering context and a vital dialogue
between the furniture works and the artistic practices they relate to and derive from.
With the intention of creating a line of pieces that are afordable for everyone, in conjunction with the
exhibition we will launch a new feature of our platform – an edition section which will be available on
the website’s online shop.
Ultimately, this exhibition will bring our so-far virtual platform to real life and introduce it to a wider
audience – emphasizing the process of its development while delineating its future.
