    Blurring the lines of craftsmanship and artmaking is intrinsic to Jorge Pardo’s practice: Since the early 1990s, the Cuban-born, Los Angeles–based artist has made a career of boundary-spanning work that erodes distinctions between art, architecture, and design by incorporating one practice into another. For his first European museum solo, Pardo will again take up the roles of artist, designer, and something in between by way of some eighty works produced over the past fifteen years—everything from lighting and furniture to found objects, sculptures, works on paper, and, as it happens, K21’s luminous bar, which Pardo designed in 2002. Come raise a glass to the artist’s oeuvre in its celebratory union of color, shape, light, and utility.
