‘Too Much of Everything’ (2009) exhibition review

Like early-twentieth century Bauhaus experiments, here were local and international designers and artists once more engaged in discursive exchange across a levelled field of creative production. But if the Bauhaus perfected the modernist ideals of technological progress in design efficiency – form follows function, truth to materials, and so on – ‘Too Much of Everything’ offered a new perspective on the relationship between art, ‘the product’ and consumption that was distinctly contemporary. – Brooke Babington
