Notes from the Archive: CITY's Gala Opening was the first time the Memphis Collection was seen in the USA as a major collection of furniture, ceramics, glass, silver, and fabrics. Other smaller exhibits had proceeded this show, (including one in 1983 at CITY) but were more limited in their presentation. Many of the Memphis core designers attended the event. The artwork is a collage of found objects, cut paper, plastic and illustration skills: airbrush, crayon and pencil.
