Barbican Art Gallery stages the first major survey in the UK of the internationally acclaimed, London-based design maverick Ron Arad.

Ron Arad: Restless explores three decades of Aradís designs from his early post-punk approach of assembling products from readymade parts to his exclusive and highly polished sculptural furnishings. Featuring a dramatic exhibition design by Ron Arad Associates using the latest LED display technology, Ron Arad: Restless also includes architectural designs and immediately recognisable mass produced pieces. Highlighting the significance of experimentation, process and materials in Aradís work, the exhibition offers a timely insight into the development of objects from initial idea and fabrication to finished design. Take a look at the Ron Arad: Restless microsite....

Events programme
Inspired by Ron Aradís infectious curiosity and boundless sense of freedom, Barbican Art Gallery will be celebrating his work with a host of talks, workshops and lively, late-night gallery activities.
