Fashion and Textile Museum | Kaffe Fassett : A Life in Colour

Fashion and Textile Museum | Kaffe Fassett : A Life in Colour | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

London | 22.03.2013 - 29.06.2013

"Kaffe Fassett – A Life in Colour’ is a celebration of the work of one of the great practitioners of contemporary craft. This exhibition, the first in London since Kaffe Fassett’s record-breaking show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1988, features over 100 works within a dramatic installation designed by Sue Timney.

Exhibition highlights include extravagantly-coloured 9-foot-wide knitted shawls, coats and throws, patchwork fabrics shown in a glorious selection of quilts, as well as items especially created for this exhibit and not seen in public before. The design also features a ‘feeling’ wall that allows visitors to touch and better understand the textiles on display and their construction. From his childhood in the creative community of Big Sur, California, to his career as a painter, and later as a knitwear and textile designer in London from the 1960s to the present day, Kaffe’s ability to blend pattern, texture and colour has won him a dedicated following of enthusiasts."

Museo Etnográfico de Castilla y León | Outumuro Looks. Veinticinco años fotografiando moda

Museo Etnográfico de Castilla y León | Outumuro Looks. Veinticinco años fotografiando moda | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Zamora | 14.05.2014 - 05.10.2014

"El Museo Etnográfico de Castilla y León presenta la exposición OUTUMURO LOOKS, organizada y producida por el Museu del Disseny de Barcelona. Una colección de fotografías extraídas del amplio archivo de Manuel Outumuro y disparadas a lo largo de los últimos veinticinco años. La exposición argumenta en seis apartados un discurso que nos remite a las fuentes de inspiración del autor. [...]

El elegante y descriptivo clasicismo de las imágenes de Outumuro hace que esta exposición no sea solamente una muestra de la obra de uno de los fotógrafos más reconocidos de nuestro país, si no también, un recorrido visual por la historia de la moda, a través de los grandes nombres que la crearon en el último cambio de siglo."

New York | 10.09.2014 - 15.02.2015

From the high platform chopines of sixteenth-century Italy to the glamorous stilettos on today’s runways and red carpets, the exhibition looks at the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination.

As fashion statement, fetish object, instrument of power, and outlet of artistic expression for both the designer and the wearer, throughout the ages the high-heeled shoe has gone through many shifts in style and symbolism."

"Culture CHANEL tends to reveal to the public the foundations of the brand through the unique life of Gabrielle Chanel, emphasizing her links with the artists she supported and that nurtured her creativity."

"As inspirational subjects that go beyond mere geographical locations, Gabrielle Chanel’s places especially marvel for some intangible radiance, which for an instant unravels the way they are perceived in reality, and makes them uncannily hers.
Still today, these same sensations enliven the creations of the House of CHANEL."

Gwacheon | 05.06.2014 - 05.10.2014

"Contemporary art and design strategically place objects within the context of our daily life. Through conceptualization and the production process, this strategy forms a tacit agreement, as a behavioral pattern that itself becomes the basis for judgment, evaluation, and other behavior. In this exhibition, this agreement is defined as ‘Objectology’, or the ‘ethics of objects’."

Museo del Traje | Manuel Pertegaz (1918-2014) El modisto eterno

Museo del Traje | Manuel Pertegaz (1918-2014) El modisto eterno | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Madrid | 10.09.2014 - 19.10.2014

"Este es el pequeño homenaje expositivo del Museo del Traje a la figura de Manuel Pertegaz. Durante un mes (además de la vitrina habitual dedicada al modista en el área "Moda de Autor") se pueden disfrutar 11 piezas del maestro de la costura.
Nacido en Olba (Teruel) en 1918, desde niño sintió la vocación de la costura y con solo 24 años ya abría su primera casa de costura en Barcelona. Tras la guerra civil abre en Madrid, donde triunfa, y a mediados de los 50 se introduce con gran éxito en el mercado americano, llegando a recibir el Oscar de la Costura otorgado por la Universidad de Harvard. Tras rechazar la dirección creativa de la casa Dior en 1957, continúa una carrera plagada de reconocimientos que culmina con la exposición homenaje en el MNCARS en 2004 y la realización del traje de boda de la entonces princesa Letizia y Premio Aguja de Oro el mismo año."

Kent State University Museum | Arthur Koby Jewelry: The Creative Eye | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Kent | 25.10.2013 - 05.10.2014

"Architect/sculptor/jeweler: all describe the work of Arthur Koby whom Vogue Magazine described as “one of the masters of collage.” Designer Geoffrey Beene asked Koby to provide jewelry for his runway collections as did Oscar de la Renta and Donna Karan throughout the 1980s. He combines, manipulates and assembles unexpected materials, found in his worldwide travels, into necklaces that his clients can choose to wear in full evening dress or with jeans and T-shirts. The fantasy necklaces might be made of “drawer hinges, Victorian shoe buckles, diamond-faceted stones made from melted-down beer bottles, hand-carved buffalo horn and shredded or solidified balloons” as the New York Times put it in 1987.  “You have to be a little daring; that’s what adds excitement!” said the designer."

Brussels | 10.09.2014 - 16.11.2014

"Wood, ceramics and textiles have existed for thousands of years, and were originally used to make essentially practical objects. Garments were intended to act as protection against the cold, plates were made to contain food, and wood could be formed into anything, including roofs. But from the very outset, craftsmen have been inspired by their imaginative vision to move beyond this purely functional aspect and to create objects reflecting the role of aesthetic value. The three designers brought together here at Intersections#3 have taken the same direction."

Paris | 06.09.2014 - 11.10.2014

"What happens when a work of art also presents a functional purpose, when a sculpture serves as a piece of furniture, when a picture is painted, not on canvas, but on a curtain or carpet?

This exhibition puts into perspective the way in which many artists eschew categories and question the porous boundary that is meant to separate fine art from the decorative arts by reintroducing the notion of domesticity in their reflection.

These works – often considered as belonging in the margins of artistic practice – reveal other stakes, however. The most obvious of these consists in attributing to the object a function that goes beyond beauty or content."
