A follow up to On Show, this title explores the latest in exhibition design by a select group of leading artists, designers and architects. The creation of temporary exhibits or displays often means that there is greater room for creative exploration in both concept and execution. On Show by Design showcases this creative freedom by examining some of the most iconic designs of recent years. Some highlights include Dior Illustrated: Rene Gruau, held at Somerset House in London, and celebrating some of the 20th centuries most iconic fashion images by the renowned artist; a retrospective from 15 years of design by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec held at Les Arts Decoratifs museum in Paris; and the immersive Sasso San Gottardo exhibition, held inside the caves and caverns at St. Gottard Pass, Switzerland. All of the shows featured make extraordinary use of space, and have created truly unique ways of exhibiting paintings, sculptures, models, videos, multimedia, installations and design.
