In the rush toward modernity after the 1925 Paris Exposition, architectural and domestic metalwork gained prominence in the public eye, exemplifying the "art deco" mode. Using examples from Cooper-Hewitt's collection, curator and art historian Jewel Stern will examine the stylistic transition in metalwork during the late 1920s and 1930s, from the exuberance of the Jazz Age through the Depression, reflecting a new sober aesthetic associated with "streamlining" and a modern classicism.
