Susan Yelavich Co-Curates Deep Surface: Contemporary Ornament and Pattern

Susan Yelavich co-curated the exhibition “Deep Surface: Contemporary Ornament and Pattern”, which opened September 23 and runs until January 2, 2012 at the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, North Carolina. With her co-curator Denise Gonzales Crisp, Yelavich selected an international roster of 42 designers, drawn from all disciplines of design.  The exhibition is comprised of six thematic sections and features such seminal works as Hella Jongerius’s Sampler Blankets, wallpaper by Michael Rock and Susan Sellers of 2×4 for Maharam Digital Projects, and fashion created from reconstructed second-hand clothes by Junky Styling.
