160 iconic works, created between 1981 and 1988, displayed in a former Bordeaux prison. A trip into a realm of explosive colours, asymmetrical images, totem furniture, objects far removed from any sort of conformism or functionalism. Totally-unheard-of, a smash hit when the collection was unveiled in Milan in 1981.
Basically Memphis puts a smile back on people’s faces and even fits of laughter.
With the participation of Alberto Bianchi Albrici and Memphis SRL, co-producer of the Memphis exhibition, who lent most of the works.
