In the past ten years, Jaime Hayon (b. 1974) has emerged as an artist-designer at the forefront of an energetic new wave in contemporary design. Colorful and whimsical figures emerge from the depths of Hayon’s imagination and, in some cases, his dreams, becoming sculptures, ceramics, textiles, and playground equipment. Jaime Hayon: Technicolor allows visitors to enter the Spanish artist-designer’s vibrant world and find inspiration in his embrace of imagination. This exhibition includes the premiere of Afrikando, a collection of artistic glassworks commissioned for the Museum.
