Break from Tradition: How Art of the 20th Century Shapes Design

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM | Donghia, Suite 700

Artistic masterpieces – from the Old Masters to Impressionists and Modernists – are no longer solely the purview of the museum exhibition or gallery walls, but rather are cherished focal points in the homes of collectors. Designing a space that seamlessly incorporates an important work, while celebrating its significance and protecting its integrity, is no easy feat, but should be highly rewarding. Join Town & Country Editor in Chief Stellene Volandes at the Donghia showroom as she moderates a panel of art and design experts, including Molly Ott-Ambler, Senior Vice President, Senior Specialist of Impressionist and Modern Art at Sotheby’s; Designer Stephen Sills, renowned for his skillful work with priceless works of art; and Sophie Matisse, artist in her own right and great-granddaughter to Henri Matisse, one of the most influential artists of all time, whose works continue to impact contemporary artists in their practice today. Each panelist will share valuable expertise and anecdotes to shed light upon how we can design with masterpieces in mind.

The Art of Set Design: Creating Dramatic Interiors in Film, Theater and Television

4:00 PM to 5:15 PM | Zimmer + Rohde, Suite 932

Movies, theater and television have the ability to inspire, influence and entertain, transporting us to new worlds of luxury or evoke the realities of another place in time through the use of production design and set décor. Serving as a backdrop, set design develops the narrative, supports the characters and most importantly, provides the overall visual look and tone. Join Award winning Hamilton production designer David Korins, Hidden Figures production designer Wynn Thomas and Madam Secretary set decorator Sheila Bock and moderator Cathy Whitlock, Contributing Writer for The Hollywood Reporter and author of Designs on Film: A Century of Hollywood Art Direction as they go behind the scenes and lift the veil behind film, theater and television design.
