with Catherine Ince
Organised in parallel with The World of Charles and Ray Eames, an exhibition currently running at the Barbican until 14th February 2016.
This workshop explores the rudiments of problem solving and takes Hideyuki Oka’s influential book ‘How to Wrap Five Eggs’ (1967) as it’s starting point to explore the many and varied solutions to such seemingly simple challenges as how one might package and transport five eggs from market stall to kitchen.
Catherine Ince is Senior Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum where she is developing the curatorial programme of V&A East, a new institution planned for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Until October 2015 Ince was a Curator at the Barbican Centre where she produced major survey exhibitions and publications including The World of Charles and Ray Eames (2015), Pop Art Design (2013), Bauhaus: Art as Life(2012) and Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion (2011).
