“An exhibition of paintings, furniture and installations by Zaha Hadid goes on show at the Ivorypress Space gallery in Madrid this September and runs through November. Presented by curator Kenny Schachter, the exhibition will feature recent projects such as the Z-Chair and the Liquid Glacial Table, as well as older works that include Hadid’s 1980′s paintings of buildings in London, Berlin and Hamburg. Kenny Schachter describes Hadid’s world-view as one in which ‘art, design, and architecture collapse into one another to reflect an all-encompassing way of life characterised by pushing and pulling the boundaries of aesthetics in every conceivable manner and form. What is so inspiring and intriguing about the astounding output of Zaha Hadid, is the imaginative, inventive and unquenchable expression of curiosity and creativity. Hadid defies pigeonholing in a world increasingly defined by uniformity.’”
