Gray Matters - Game Changers

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Eileen Gray’s uncompromising vision defined and defied the practice of modernism in decoration, design and architecture. Known for her lacquer work and tubular steel furniture, Gray became a sought after decorator before reinventing herself as an architect, a field in which she laboured largely in obscurity: her first building, the E-1027 villa on the French Riviera, was long credited to her mentor, Le Corbusier. But she lived long enough (98!) to be re-discovered and recognized for masterful work. Gray Matterssheds a light on her life, career and legacy, which remains as elusive and compelling as its creator.
