‘Why Be Exotic In Private? is a solo installation by artist Jenny Steele, which is the result of her research into South Beach Miami’s 1930’s ‘Seaside Moderne’ architecture which was inspired by the long sweeping streamlined curves and details of ocean liners and the International Modernist style. In addition to recording the formal and decorative elements of the buildings, Steele explored the social history of the largest area of coastal art deco architecture built internationally. The installation was Steele’s first solo exhibition in London at The Foundry Gallery, Chelsea from December 2018 – March 2019, and is at Rogue Project Space, Manchester until June 29th.
This exhibition is supported by Arts Council England Project Grants, The Graphical Tree, The Little Greene Paint Company, Fred Aldous and The Foundry Gallery.
