Charles & Ray Eames at Bildmuseet in Umeå, Sweden

Posted April 5, 2016

April 17 – September 4, 2016: The Barbican Art Gallery’s acclaimed exhibition, The World of Charles and Ray Eames is traveling to the Bildmuseet in Umeå, Sweden.


Charles and Ray Eames are among the most influential designers of the 20th century. Together they moved fluidly between the fields of photography, film, architecture, exhibition-making, furniture, and product design.
The Eames Office in Los Angeles was a hub of activity where the husband-and-wife team produced pioneering designs with a boundless creativity that defined their careers.

The exhibition includes furniture, products, models, and multi-media installations, as well as personal letters, photographs, drawings, and artwork. It reveals the breadth of the Eameses’ innovative work, reminds us of their playful ideas, and provides an insight into their lives.

The exhibition was curated and produced by the Barbican Art Gallery, London, in collaboration with the Eames Office. It has been made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.

Saturday 16 April: Talks and conversations 
Sunday 17 April: Exhibition opening reception
