THE EXHIBITION

"Form follows function" is the principle that the form art takes should be based upon its intent and purpose. Form and Function will examine this principle as well as any artwork that challenges it. Architecture ranges from a large scale building, to the design of a chair, to the structure of a pen. Whether the design is functional, decorative, or alludes to the infrastructure of an object, Form and Function explores the relationship between the form of art and its function or purpose.
