The exhibition Modern Taste: Art Deco in Paris, 1910–1935 aims to give visitors an opportunity to appreciate, examine and enjoy an art movement that defies simple definition, which has been described as ‘the last of the total styles’: art deco. The exhibition seeks to question the almost complete absence of art deco from the history of modern art and from curatorial practice, and to champion not only the evident beauty of art deco but also the fascination and cultural and artistic complexity of this uniquely modern phenomenon.
