This fall, Chicago auction house Wright, which specializes in 20th century furniture, art and design, introduces guest-curated exhibitions to Wright 21, its contemporary design platform. The first exhibition, Truth in Form/Reason for Being, runs September 29 to October 6 2011. Curated by Volume Gallery, an event-based gallery that focuses on emerging contemporary American designers, the show encompasses cutting-edge objects that are purposeful and concise.
