"Suite Fantastique: A Design Arts Extravaganza"
2001-01-27 until 2001-04-15
Wexner Center for the Arts
Columbus, OH, USA

The Wexner Centerís highly anticipated set of winter exhibitions - a design arts suite filling all five galleries - includes opening credits from movies, radical architectural drawings, postmodern furniture, and a giant beast visitors can walk through. All exhibitions in Suite Fantastique were organized by Jeffrey Kipnis, the Wexner Center's curator of architecture and design.

A brief outline of the suite:
- Film titles by Imaginary Forces, a leading Hollywood-based design studio. This exhibition is the first of its kind and features opening credits from such movies as Donnie Brasco and Seven.
- Perfect Acts of Architecture.Drawings from the 1970s and '80s by the great architectural thinkers of our time: Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, Thom Mayne, and Bernard Tschumi. Includes radical designs, a mystery in Central Park, and a provocative new social system.
- The Predator, a Fabian Marcaccio/Greg Lynn collaboration: This Wexner Center Residency Award project is a giant beast created by painter Marcaccio and architect Lynn. Visitors can walk through the organism, a hybrid of architecture and painting with high-tech origins.
- Scott Burton Furniture: Twenty-one pieces of furniture by Burton - from a lava chair to a blue granite benchólink gallery to gallery.
- A fifth gallery contains a painting by Marcaccio, a house model by Lynn, and Burton furniture.

Opening events include a late-night party with DJ Spooky and free screenings of The Predator, the sci-fi movie that inspired the exhibition of the same name. A free lecture series - featuring talks by architects Peter Eisenman and Rem Koolhaas, designer Kyle Cooper, and others - will be held throughout the run of the exhibition. The attached sheet contains information on these events, as well as on a related exhibition, a symposium, a Family Day, and more.
