In 2009, Todd Merrill launched Studio Contemporary, an exhibition-based program representing an international group of established and emerging contemporary designers and artists.
Though the Studio Contemporary program presents a diverse group of artistic styles and media, the artists all share an underlying drive to push the materials that comprise their works to their absolute aesthetic limits. Their dynamic, unique, and frequently groundbreaking works contribute to today’s increasingly relevant grey space between art and design.
Studio Contemporary designers and artists’ works have entered the collections of major private and public patrons and prestigious museums including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; the Museum of Art and Design in New York; the High Museum in Atlanta; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; and the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
