Weltkulturen Museum | Trading style : the global street | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Frankfurt | 07.11.2012 - 31.08.2013

"What does fashion tell us about society? How do styles travel and mediate identity?

In an unprecedented dialogue between past and present worlds of fashion, “TRADING STYLE” presents over 500 historic objects, photographs and films from the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection together with new designs for clothing and accessories by four international fashion labels: Buki Akib(NG), A Kind of Guise (DE), CassettePlaya (UK) and P.A.M./Perks and Mini (AU). Working in residence at the museum’s lab during 2012, each team of designers investigated the ethnographic collections and created new prototype garments inspired by their selection."

Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw | The Second Polish Exhibition of Graphic Symbols

Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw | The Second Polish Exhibition of Graphic Symbols | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Warsaw | 13.11.2015 - 31.01.2016

"Since the late 1960s Poland has not produced an exhibition or publication that would attempt to show the history of its graphic symbols and visual identities in its entirety. A sign is one of the basic elements of visual communication. Abstract symbols, artistic metaphors and graphic shortcuts are like syllables and letters of a graphic language system in which the history of a nation or a society is reflected."

"The first part of the exhibition is a reconstruction of the legendary First Polish Exhibition of Graphic Symbols from 1969.[...] The second part of the exhibition includes 335 recent designs created between 2000 and 2015."

The State Hermitage Museum | Golden Generation. Modernism in Finnish Architecture and Design

The State Hermitage Museum | Golden Generation. Modernism in Finnish Architecture and Design | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

St. Petersburg | 14.11.2015 - 31.01.2016

"The “Golden Generation” of figures who brought fame and glory to Finnish architecture and design in the 1930s–60s adopted from the Modernist movement and the International Style primarily those methods that accorded with their national mentality and tradition. Perhaps it was due to this latter circumstance that the phenomenon of Finnish Modernism arose: it is a fairly pragmatic and introverted school, always following home-grown traditions, oriented on local materials and climatic peculiarities. Independence aids survival irrespective of short-term tendencies and the looks that architects and designers produced 70 years ago are still relevant."

MoMA | This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

MoMA | This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | -- 18.01.2016

"Is design in the digital age—so often simply assumed to be for the greater good—truly for everyone? From initial exploratory experiments to complex, and often contested, hybrid digital-analog states, all the way to “universal” designs, This Is for Everyone explores this question with works from MoMA’s collection that celebrate the promise—and occasional flipside—of contemporary design."

The Metropolitan Museum of Art | Jacqueline de Ribes - The Art of Style

The Metropolitan Museum of Art | Jacqueline de Ribes - The Art of Style | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 19.11.2015 - 21.02.2016

"This Costume Institute exhibition focuses on the internationally renowned style icon Countess Jacqueline de Ribes, whose originality and elegance established her as one of the most celebrated fashion personas of the twentieth century. [...]
A muse to haute couture designers, de Ribes had at her disposal their drapers, cutters, and fitters in acknowledgment of their esteem for her taste and originality. Ultimately, she used this talent and experience to create her own successful design business, which she directed from 1982 to 1995. While the exhibition focuses on her taste and style, extensive documentation from her personal archives illustrates the range of her professional life, including her roles as theatrical impresario, television producer, interior designer, and director and organizer of international charity events."

"The Röhsska Museum award committee for the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize, funded by the Torsten Söderberg Foundation, decided to award Ilkka Suppanen in 2015. In January 2016 the exhibition of the awarded designer will be touring first time ever at Design Museum Helsinki.

"Hailed as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and with projects underway on four continents, Adjaye is known for combining the aesthetics of his African heritage with classic, modernist design. In exploring Cooper Hewitt’s collection, he has created a dialogue between the museum’s textiles and his own “library of patterns” that he draws on as a source of inspiration in his work."

Singapore Art Museum | The Alchemists

Singapore Art Museum | The Alchemists | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Singapore | 16.01.2016 - 31.01.2016

"The Alchemists is a nod to the Italian movement of the 1970s, Studio Alchimia, whose members’ experimental design pieces resulted in a design language and creativity that challenged the status quo. It was a radical design movement that pushed the boundaries of design, and changed the global design landscape for the future. The title also aims to convey a seemingly magical element, or role, that exists in the act of designing or making. The alchemist of yesteryear dedicated their life to the transformation of materials, from the ordinary to the precious, most commonly from metal into gold. The starting point for The Alchemists project was the designer as alchemist: what can be designed by applying the process of transmutation?"

In all, there will be 150 featured pieces from Nationalmuseum’s collections, in a range of materials including cast iron, glass and silver.Swedish crafts and design enjoyed an upsurge in popularity between the two world wars.

"Viatjar amb distinció és una expressió que ens evoca, abans que res, un viatge, ja sigui amb tren, amb cotxe, amb metro, amb helicòpter o dalt d’un elefant; i, en segon lloc, una manera de fer-ho, amb distinció, és a dir, amb elegància o bé d’una manera singular, diferent de la convencional. Aquestes imatges són fotografies de moda que tenen com a escenari principal un mitjà de transport que ens suggereix un viatge, real, quotidià o fantasiós, de somni. En realitat, són un petit tast de la Col·lecció de Fotografia de Moda que el Museu del Disseny de Barcelona presenta per primera vegada a la seva seu fins al final del març del 2016."

"From vibrant street clothing to exquisite haute couture, this exhibition celebrates the visual range, creative expression and political nuance of Native American fashion.

Also examined is how non-Native designers adopt and translate traditional Native American design motifs in their own work, including Isaac Mizrahi's now iconic Totem Pole Dress. Featuring contemporary garments, accessories and footwear spanning a variety of genres and materials, these designers traverse cross-cultural boundaries between creative expressions and cultural borrowing."
