Barbara Davis Gallery is very excited to announce THE JOURNEY OF THE CHAIR, an upcoming exhibition by one of Italy’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Andrea Bianconi. This exhibition will mark the American unveiling of the 'Sit Down To Have an Idea' limited-edition BIGA and ITALIA chair produced by LUXY, Milan. The exhibition will include drawings, sculptures, projections, photographs, and one of Bianconi’s celebrated global performances.

"The chair represents the moment in which each person can express their creativity. He can imagine, he can think. A piece that is not a function of a space, but intends to make man more aware of himself." says Andrea.

Andrea Bianconi's concept to indulge in quiet time, think of the big ideas in one's life, and reset our world is capturing the attention of the art world, with the Sit Down To Have An Idea Chair being featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, ArtForum, and Houston's own Paper City, as well as garnering massive international press on the cover of critically acclaimed Italian fine art journal Espoarte, with popular Italian media like Interni Magazine featuring Bianconi's idea chair on their covers.

"Once the function of the object that reconciles to idleness has ceased, the chairs that I recreate with Sit Down To Have An Idea become a sort of incubator of ideas." -Andrea Bianconi
