2017 Fall Exhibitions Opening Reception

06:00 pm - 10/06/2017

@ World Chess Hall of Fame

4652 Maryland Ave
St. Louis MO  63108



The World Chess Hall of Fame invites you to the Opening Reception for Victor Vasarely: Calculated Compositions & PINNED! A Designer Chess Challenge.

Victor Vasarely, widely recognized for his compelling illusions of spatial depth, was greatly inspired by patterns, including that of a chessboard. He is considered the father of the global op art movement and believed that art was intended to be enjoyed by the masses, rather than an elite few. This exhibition features works on loan from the Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece supplemented by selections from the permanent collections of the World Chess Hall of Fame and Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield.

PINNED! is a first-of-its-kind designer challenge, developed in partnership with the World Chess Hall of Fame and the Saint Louis Fashion Fund, to celebrate the intersection of chess and fashion. Paired with a consulting Grandmaster, each of the six designers in the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator’s inaugural class—Agnes Hamerlik, Emily Brady Koplar, Allison Mitchell, Audra Noyes, Charles Smith II, and Reuben Reuel—designed a chess ensemble for today’s chess player. A new exhibit, Pinned! A Designer Chess Challenge will chronicle the process and outcome of this unique challenge.
