Moscow Design Museum | Packaging design. Made in Russia

Moscow Design Museum | Packaging design. Made in Russia | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Moscow | 19.04.2013 - 25.06.2013

"For the first time in Russia, this retrospective will present the centuries-long history and tradition of Russian packaging, starting from original folksy solutions to contemporary, world-renowned examples of design. Curators of the exhibition examine the history of Russian graphic and industrial design by looking at artifacts of national material culture. A timeline of artistic styles and movements forms the basis of the exposition. These include eclecticism and neo-Russian style, art nouveau, Russian avant-garde and constructivism, Stalin’s empire style and socialist realism, mid-century modernism, 1980’s eclecticism, computerized experiments of the 1990’s and contemporary trends.

(...)

Visitors to the exhibition will not only be introduced to the process of how package design is created but will also see original hand-made sketches and models. Besides food packaging, perfume and medical products the exhibition will include interesting examples of packaging for household items, textiles and toys."

Museo Thyssen | Vogue like a painting

Museo Thyssen | Vogue like a painting | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Madrid | 30.06.2015 - 12.10.2015

"This exhibition brings together sixty fashion photographs inspired by painting. The photographs, from the Vogue Archive, are the work of great photographers of the past three decades.
Spanish Golden Age painting, Dutch portraiture, pictures from the Victorian period and the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as the various schools of painting represented in the European royal collections, have provided a model for the photographers who, focusing on female beauty, have shaped the image of Vogue magazine over the years and have also been an example for many contemporary artists. Traces of the work of Constable, Zuloaga and Sorolla, among others, are present in the pieces on display in this show, which combines leading names in classic photography with the talent of new generations, including Irving Penn, Annie Leibovitz, Tim Walker, Paolo Roversi, Steven Klein, David Sims, Erwin Olaf, Michael Thompson, Mario Testino and Peter Lindbergh, to name a few."

The Philadelphia Museum of Art | Northern Lights: Scandinavian Design

The Philadelphia Museum of Art | Northern Lights: Scandinavian Design | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Pennsylvania | 23.05.2015 - 04.10.2015

“In the world to-day there is no group of people who have designed better objects for the home than the Scandinavians,” declared Leslie Cheek Jr., director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, in 1954. This emphatic statement appeared in the catalogue for Design in Scandinavia, a groundbreaking exhibition that traveled across North American to twenty-four cities, including Richmond, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, and Houston. Widely publicized in print and on the radio and television, the exhibition was seen by some 660,000 people, exposing a broad audience to the best of Scandinavian design and making household names of many of its featured designers and manufacturers. Commentators praised the aesthetic and functional excellence of the works they encountered, qualities that still characterize Scandinavian design today. "

MUDAC | Telling Time

MUDAC | Telling Time | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Suisse | 27.05.2015 - 27.09.2015

"The vocabulary of watchmaking uses poetic and evocative language to express the plethora of ways employed through the centuries to display the time - how about wandering hours, mysterious time, digital time, hands in the air or singing hours? Telling Time juxtaposes historic pieces and works by contemporary artists and designers, which all share the same desire to tell the time. The more recent creations often build upon and adapt the inventive¬ness of watchmakers of yesteryear. Each of these domains - watchmaking, art and design - brings its own particular resonance, its own poetry and aesthetic language. The exhibition builds bridges from one time to another, one subject to another, sometimes playfully, while highlighting the harmony and continuity between the past and the present. It is unexpected, curious and funny.."

Gucci Museum | The Language of Flowers

Gucci Museum | The Language of Flowers | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Florence | 13.05.2015 - 20.09.2015

“The Language of Flowers”, seventh exhibition of the Pinault Collection at the Gucci Museo, is an allusion to one of Gucci's most iconic motifs: Flora.

Curated  by Martin Bethenod, director of Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana,  this exhibition brings together the works of four artists, produced between 1967 and 2012, who play with the iconography of flowers. The subject is much less simple than it may seem, as each work is remarkable in its power of visual seduction (and olfactory seduction for one of them), each imbued with a sense of delicate yet profound ambiguity. Above and beyond a motif that could be considered frivolous or banal, what in fact emerges are themes such as vanity, memory, politics and the value of art...

"Jaulas Doradas se presenta como una propuesta expositiva de prendas de indumentaria femenina, que en combinación con armazones interiores (miriñaques y polisones) y corsés, intentará poner de manifiesto -siguiendo un hilo cronológico-, los momentos más singulares y paradigmáticos en la configuración de la silueta, constreñida y enjaulada, que predominó en la imagen y estética de la mujer de la segunda mitad del siglo XIX."

Madrid | 10.06.2015 - 20.09.2015

"Comisariada por Ana Dominguez Siemens, la muestra busca las razones por las que se elige este camino que son múltiples “desde la demanda del público, o la fascinación por un proceso artesanal; la compulsión de hacer cosas con sus manos; la impaciencia de ver su producto terminado; el cierre de la empresa que producía el producto o la crisis económica; hasta la necesidad de demostrar que el proyecto es viable, el afán de experimentar, o la libertad de buscar soluciones personales”. Se trata de un modelo de auto-producción que implica que el diseñador se involucre también en tareas de marketing, promoción y venta de sus diseños, deviniendo un pequeño emprendedor."

Bonn | 28.03.2015 - 13.09.2015

"Karl Lagerfeld is one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers and widely celebrated as an icon of the zeitgeist. Karl Lagerfeld. Modemethode at the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany is the first comprehensive exhibition to explore the fashion cosmos of this exceptional designer and, with it, to present an important chapter of the fashion history of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Karl Lagerfeld is known for injecting classic shapes with new life and for taking fashion into new directions. [...] ‘Modemethode’, Karl Lagerfeld’s ‘fashion method’, is his ambitious, all-encompassing approach: from the initial sketch to the finished garment, from the accessories, the architectural setting and music of the fashion shows, to the photographs and graphic design of press material, advertising, catalogues and window displays –  every last little detail is devised by the designer himself."

Museum für Gestaltung - Schaudepot | Lora Lamm - La vita è bella | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Zurich | 24.06.2015 - 16.08.2015

"Poetry, humor and the restrained use of color characterize the poster world of Swiss graphic designer Lora Lamm. In the1950s she helped give the Milan department store “La Rinascente” or the tire manufacturer “Pirelli” an unmistakable image, while later, as a partner in the advertising agency Frank C. Thiesing, she did the same for numerous national and international clients. Lamm’s posters are marked by a sensitive exploration of the means of graphic art and an independent approach in the context of progressive, post-war graphic design. Lamm traverses the borders between Italy and Switzerland, illustration and graphic design, past and present."

Centre de Documentació del Museu del Disseny de Barcelona's insight:

London | 25.04.2015 - 27.09.2015

"What is Luxury? interrogates how luxury is made and understood. Luxury has a long history of controversy. More recently, the increase in prominence and growth of luxury brands against the backdrop of social inequality has raised new questions about what the term means to people today. Changes in culture and communication have also stimulated interest in less tangible forms of luxury, such as the desire for space and time."

MAK | Christoph Niemann - Drawing the Line | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Vienna | 01.07.2015 - 11.10.2015

"Christoph Niemann, the “visual storyteller,” is a sought-after graphic designer—in the USA as well as in Europe. Born in Waiblingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) in 1970, he soon found success in New York, where he moved in 1997 after finishing his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart. [...]

In this way, Niemann places everyday scenes and visual clichés in new and occasionally ludicrous contexts, offering viewers new perspectives. As a result, he makes it possible to discover the poetry in the everyday, the irony in the familiar, and the tragedy in the banal."

“From the first house R.M. Schindler designed using a drafting machine to contemporary architects who design digital drawing devices instead of houses, The New Creativity: Man and Machines examines creative practices in relation to the social and technical complexes that support and constrain them. While all forms of art making have been radically transformed by the advent of digital technologies, spaces of creative production are the most telling symptoms of how these transformations reflect deeper changes in the understanding of creativity itself”

"Part sculpture, part architectural installation, all play. 'The Brutalist Playground' is a new commission by Assemble and artist Simon Terrill exploring post-war design for play. Occupying the entire Architecture Gallery at RIBA, encourages visitors to look at the materiality and visual language of now lost Brutalist landscapes in new ways through an immersive and conceptual landscape. Although the value of brutalist residential buildings today is much debated, this exhibition shifts the focus to the equally important playgrounds found at the feet of these structures, offering a renewed understanding and critique of the architects’ original designs and intentions."
