Fashion Institute of Technology | RetroSpective

Fashion Institute of Technology | RetroSpective | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 22.05.2013 - 16.11.2013

"RetroSpective examines fashion’s fascination with its own history by presenting an overview of historical references in fashion, paying particular attention to recurrence of silhouette.

The exhibition opens with designs that are inspired by the distant past: civilizations, such as Ancient Egypt, Greece, or Byzantium, and historical periods, such as the Elizabethan era, prior to the 18th century. Featured objects include a classically-inspired Madame Grès pleated gown from 1944, the soft drape of which evokes the fluting of a Grecian column; an opulent Yves Saint Laurent evening dress from Fall 1966 with jeweled collar and cuffs reminiscent of Byzantine adornment; and 1999 painted silk chiffon gown by Alexander McQueen for Givenchy Couture, which references 16th-century English history. 
The remainder of the exhibition explores groupings of period fashions and their more recent reincarnations, spanning 250 years of fashion, beginning with the 18th century."

Queens Museum | Never built New York

Queens Museum | Never built New York | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
New York | 17.09.2017 - 18.02.2018
"Hidden behind New York City’s iconic skyscrapers, sprawling subway system and world famous public parks is the ghost of the city that could have been – a parallel metropolis that can reveal the city’s goals, strengths and challenges. Never Built New York [...] invites visitors to discover the New York City that might have been through original prints, drawings, models, installations, and animations. While it may be impossible to re-imagine New York, Never Built explores a city where you could catch a football game in Manhattan, travel via a floating airport, and live in an apartment also acting as a bridge support."

The Museum at FIT | Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
New York | 15.09.2017 - 06.01.2018
"Travel to extreme environments is a relatively modern phenomenon. Expeditions to the North and South poles, the highest mountain peaks, the depths of the ocean, and outer space have been widely covered in the press for more than a century. But it was not until the 1960s that these endeavors began to influence fashion. Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme is the first major exhibition to examine this fascinating subject."

Murano Glass Museum | Gaetano Pesce. Five Glassmaking Techniques

Murano Glass Museum | Gaetano Pesce. Five Glassmaking Techniques | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Murano | 13.05.2017 - 17.09.2017

"In the course of his long career, architect, sculptor and designer Gaetano Pesce has experimented to extraordinary effect with the manifold possibilities of working in any material. His particular passion for glassmaking has even led him to invent a technique of his own which can produce highly original results. In his unabated research into original formal and functional solutions, Pesce has experimented with a whole range of techniques [...] Alongside these extraordinarily precious glassworks are others created using the techniques of Pastis, Joliette, Vieux Port, Pâte de Verre and Plage, traditional methods that Pesce has adopted and reworked in a contemporary key."

Architekturzentrum Wien | Care + Repair

Architekturzentrum Wien | Care + Repair | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Vienna | 21.06.2017 - 31.07.2017

"How can we repair the future? And how can architecture and urbanism contribute to this? For the exemplary trial run of a Care + Repair urbanism the Architekturzentrum Wien is initiating a public workspace with a closeness to nature on the former railway territory of the impressive Nordbahnhof grounds, one of the largest inner-city development zones in Vienna. This is the gathering point for six international architectural teams who are developing prototypes for Care + Repair in tandem with local initiatives and experts. How can different urban knowledge effectively come together in neighbourhood networks, new uses of community spaces, the re-use of existing material resources, and the care for nature in the city? An on-site exhibition shows projects by the invited teams, showing how Care + Repair architecture works with the existing city and takes it into the future."

London | 25.05.2017 - 28.07.2017

"Curated by Lord Norman Foster, this exhibition explores the creativity of Cartier and design. Cartier in Motion includes over 170 exhibits alongside rare insights into the research and work of the designers at Cartier, through extracts from material found in the Cartier Archives. Whilst telling the story of Cartier watchmaking and the invention of the modern wristwatch, Cartier in Motion explores the change in society at the turn of the 20th century. Amidst upheavals in art, architecture, travel and lifestyles, the traces of a new world could be seen, and this is illustrated through each of the main themes of the exhibition"

Design Museum London | Breathing Colour by Hella Jongerius | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
London | 28.06.2017 - 24.09.2017


"Breathing Colour blurs the boundaries between art and design. Combining intriguing shapes with extensive research; this exhibition questions our preconceptions of colour and embraces its imperfection and experimentation.
The exhibition is divided into separate spaces that simulate daylight conditions at specific times of the day – morning, noon and evening. These three phases explore the impact of changing daylight on our perception of colour. Each installation includes a series of three-dimensional objects as well as textiles, some of which are hand-woven while others are produced on industrial looms."

Crafts Council | States of Play

Crafts Council | States of Play | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

London | 07.07.2017 - 24.09.2017

"Work by sixteen UK and international makers and designers turn upside down the idea that play is the preserve of children. Instead it is revealed as a creative, social and political force that infuses all areas of life. 

The makers and designers in States of Play each take an inventive, often subversive, approach to craft. Their installations and objects invite us to play – either physically or in our imaginations. They will delight, surprise and make you laugh."

Berlin | 21.01.2017 - 23.07.2017

"Günther Kieser is one of Germany’s most important graphic designers. His primarily focus was on creating posters for jazz and pop concerts, including legendary works like the poster of Jimi Hendrix where cables and switches seem to grow out of his head, or the colorful skull for the Grateful Dead. [...] Now in retirement, Günther Kieser originally no longer wanted to exhibit his works or to design posters. But he has made an exception for Bröhan-Museum, even designing the poster for this exhibition."

Roma | 23.06.2017 - 29.10.2017

"The theory of mobile architecture, conceived by Friedman in 1950s, called into question the Modernist vision whereby the inhabitants are required to adapt to a building and not the reverse: through models, drawings and installations the exhibition recounts the development of this theory while at the same time exploring the theme of improvisation as a “possibility” in the world of architecture, as theorised by Friedman from the 1970s."

Bikes! Re-inventing the bicycle - Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Leipzig | 22.06.2017 - 01.10.2017

"The bicycle went through some rapid changes in the last few years: Designers and manufacturers react to the demands of a changed mobility that requires new approaches for solutions, especially in the urban space. The general traffic situation and density require re-orientation that focuses not only on the contrary positions between motorised individual traffic and public transport, but in particular on interim solutions and combinations. The bicycle plays an important role here."

The Mint Museum | William Ivey Long: Costume designs 2007-2016 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Charlotte | 23.10.2017 - 03.06.2018

"North Carolina native William Ivey Long is one of the most renowned theatrical costume designers working today. This exhibition, organized by The Mint Museum, explores Long’s most recent work, from 2007 to today.[...] Focusing on Long’s process, it features sketches, swatches, mood boards, and other preparatory materials in addition to the costumes themselves. Because costume design is not an area in which the Mint collects, it provides visitors with exposure to this form of art and allow for comparison of the different goals of theatrical costume and fashion. The exhibition is co-curated by Annie Carlano and Rebecca Elliot. It is accompanied by a scholarly and lavishly illustrated book."

Los Angeles | 17.09.2017 - 01.04.2018
"Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 is a groundbreaking exhibition and accompanying book about design dialogues between California and Mexico. Its four main themes—Spanish Colonial Inspiration, Pre-Hispanic Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism—explore how modern and anti-modern design movements defined both locales throughout the twentieth century. Half of the show’s more than 250 objects represent architecture, conveyed through drawings, photographs, and films to illuminate the unique sense of place that characterized California’s and Mexico’s buildings. The other major focus is design: furniture, ceramics, metalwork, graphic design, and murals."

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum | Werner Aisslinger. House of Wonders | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Munich | 11.11.2016 - 17.09.2017
"Award-winning product designer Werner Aisslinger (born 1964 in Nördlingen, lives in Berlin) has been invited to create a site-specific installation for the Paternoster Hall at Pinakothek der Moderne. [...] Werner Aisslinger’s practice is based on the idea of material transfers and the question of what living and working in tomorrow’s world will be like. On the one hand, social changes are influencing people’s living needs, while on the other an ever-increasing volume of new materials with enormous potential are being marketed, which have their origins in the automotive industry, medicine, and the bio-sciences."

Vitra Design Museum | Ettore Sottsass - Rebel and Poet | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Weil am Rhein | 14.07.2017 – 24.09.2017
"This year he would have celebrated his 100th birthday: the Austro-Italian designer Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007), one of the most influential and unconventional figures in twentieth-century design. He gained renown with his designs for the office equipment manufacturer Olivetti, for his poetic, minimalist sculptural objects, and as the leading figure of the Memphis design collective in the 1980s. Over the course of his long career, Sottsass moved between disciplines, leaving behind a fascinating oeuvre that is represented by many objects in the collection of the Vitra Design Museum. The Vitra Schaudepot exhibition presents an overview of approximately 30 of his furniture designs, consumer products, photographs and writings. It pays tribute to an extraordinary designer who did not regard form and function as constraints, but rather viewed design as an opportunity to explore the nature of human existence."

"Car chez Balenciaga, le noir, plus qu’une couleur ou même une non couleur, est une matière vibrante, tour à tour opaque ou transparente, mate ou brillante, tout en jeux de lumière qui doit autant à la somptuosité des tissus qu’à l’apparente simplicité de ses coupes. Un rehaut de dentelles, une composition de broderie, une guipure, un épais tombé de velours de soie et c’est une jupe, un boléro, une mantille, une cape réinventée en manteau, un manteau taillé en pèlerine... Ici, des pièces de jour, tailleur, veste... et là, des ensembles du soir, aussi des robes de cocktail doublés en taffetas de soie, bordés de franges, ornés de rubans de satin, de perles de jais, de paillettes... et des accessoires, noirs bien sûr... D’un noir conjugué à travers une centaine de pièces issues du fonds Galliera et des archives de la Maison Balenciaga."

For the first time in Paris, we will be able to admire the skills and ingenuity of the craftsmen and craftswomen who, between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 20th century, made the forty or more costumes and accessories on display."
