Designmuseo | Postmodernism 1980-1995

Designmuseo | Postmodernism 1980-1995 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Helsinki | 30.01.2015 - 17.05.2015

[The exhibition] "will extensively present the broad frame of reference of postmodernism from a Finnish perspective of the years 1980 – 1995 in architecture, design, popular culture and the arts. Also presented are international influences and actors in the field.
Postmodernism – as a style or way of thinking – challenged the faith in linear progress and a better future that was typical of modernism. It emphasized freedom – there was no need to argue for form. Past and present, parody and conceptualism all came together. Room was left for interpretation and there was a desire to renew forms of expression."

Indianapolis | 22.08.2014 - 01.03.2015

"Science and art come together in the IMA’s Conservation Science Laboratory where in-house scientists study works of art to learn more about them and how to best conserve them. Using a recently acquired Uzbek garment, Coat of Many Colors will illustrate how scientific imaging and dye analysis has narrowed the possible creation date on this object and contributed to our understanding of the influx of modern European synthetic colorants into traditional Central Asian textile arts of the early 20th century."

Göteborg | 27.01.2015 - 01.03.2015

"Estrid Ericson (1894–1981) founded the company Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm in 1924, and alongside architects like Uno Åhrén and Josef Frank she developed it into one of Sweden’s leading home furnishing companies. Guided by her personal and sometimes eccentric taste, Estrid Ericson shaped a distinctive home furnishing ideal that both affirmed and opposed the dominant ideas of Modernism."

CID Grand Hornu | Futur Archaïque

CID Grand Hornu | Futur Archaïque | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Hornu | 25.01.2015 - 19.04.2015

"The Futur archaïque exhibition presents the connection that currently exists between the immediate, short-term or even distant future and the past, the archaic – in the sense of returning to fundamental principles, (arkhē in Greek means beginning). It is illustrated here from the perspective of design. The exhibition highlights how young as well as not-so-young designers create objects that reveal our roots, which have been given a rough ride by modernity. For all its progress, reason and rationalisation, over time this same modernity has abandoned by the wayside the intrinsic value of objects. Their very essence! In some way, design has been emptied of its sense or even its senses."

Het Noordbrabants Museum | Design from the Country of the Potato Eaters - Designers meet Van Gogh | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

’s-Hertogenbosch | 24.01.2015 - 26.04.2015

"As well as being Van Gogh country, Brabant is also an important international centre for design, whether it's spatial and industrial or fashion and food. For the Van Gogh year of inspiration, Yksi Ontwerp selected a number of exceptional projects specially for Het Noordbrabants Museum.

The works presented all have a connection with Van Gogh's themes from his Brabant period: simplicity, nature and farmland. The combination of contemporary design and eternal values has been the inspiration for an exciting exhibition of objects which continue to amaze. This exhibition forms part of the theme year Van Gogh 125 years of inspiration."

Triennale di Milano | Italian Design Icons

Triennale di Milano | Italian Design Icons | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Milano | 04.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"Triennale Design Museum presents in the CreativeSet space a group of icons from the permanent Collection of the Museum, enriched by a selection by Italian Design Masters, asked to indicate the essential and indispensable works for them in the history of Italian design.

Silvana Annicchiarico, director of the Triennale Design Museum, talks about the project: "What is left . What resists time and modes, which goes beyond trends and schools , which stabilizes in perception and settle as a ' classic ' imaginary. In a mutant museum, that changes each year exhibition design and selections , and tells the story of Italian design proposing whenever objects , projects, and different artifacts , could not miss a section in some way ' different ' : less mutant and more permanent ."

Triennale di Milano | VII Triennale Design Museum - Italian Design Beyond the Crisis Autarky, Austerity, Autonomy

Triennale di Milano | VII Triennale Design Museum - Italian Design Beyond the Crisis Autarky, Austerity, Autonomy | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Milano | 04.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"The seventh edition of the Triennale Design Museum focuses its attention on the topic of self-production differently declined and approached in three crucial periods in history: the thirties, the seventies and the zero years.

The idea at the base of the design is that the years of economic crisis could be considered particularly favorable to the stimulus of design creativity: from the origins of Italian design in the thirties, when Italian great designers have made exemplary works, to production districts (born in the seventies in small geographic areas between wealth of knowledge and excellence, based on local traditions and direct availability of raw materials) until the cutting edge forms of production and autonomy."

Museum of Fine Arts Boston | D Is for Design | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Boston | 17.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"Design drawings are among the hidden treasures of the MFA’s collection, and this exhibition displays nearly 30 works on paper, each representing a different artist, architect, or designer in an alphabet of design from the 16th through the 20th centuries. A is for Ashbee: a design for a ring by the Arts and Crafts designer and social reformer C. R. Ashbee; L is for La Farge: a design for stained glass by the artist and designer John La Farge; and R is for Rossi: an architectural model by the renowned 20th-century Italian architect Aldo Rossi. The surprising juxtaposition of unrelated but visually compelling designs for architecture, theater, stained glass, furniture, jewelry and silver, and textiles—many of which are rarely, if ever, on view—presents an opportunity for visitors to engage with questions surrounding design, from technical to artistic."

Rotterdam | 20.12.2014 - 01.03.2015

"With ‘The Factory Set', the Kunsthal Rotterdam has a scoop: almost forty works by the Rotterdam-based artist Ron van der Ende have been brought together for the first time for an impressive retrospective in honour of his one hundredth bas-relief. Van der Ende is well-known for his monumental reliefs; almost flat sculptures of objects such as cars, buildings and space capsules. The sculptures he creates are archetypes of history that are familiar to everyone. His work includes symbols of progress, but also natural formations such as Crystals and more recent, transient objects such as a glowing ember of wood and a cut of meat. The exhibition offers for the first time a fascinating cross-section of Van der Ende's oeuvre (he began making his bas-reliëfs fourteen years ago), focussing on the consistency and beauty of his work, and the traditional creative process he uses"

Bolzano | 01.11.2014 - 01.03.2015

"Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa  brings together a commissioned body of work by American artist Carol Bove (Geneva, 1971) with exhibition furniture and sculptures by the Venetian architect and exhibition designer Carlo Scarpa (1906-78). Using carefully chosen materials and choreographing display strategies to produce narrative, Bove and Scarpa share a concern with relationships between an object, its environment and the moment of sculptural encounter. Seen together for the very first time, the works of Bove and Scarpa question how objects and artworks are embedded within structures of meaning, emphasising the importance of the direct and temporal encounter with sculpture."

Royal Ontario Museum | Around 1914: Design in a New Age

Royal Ontario Museum | Around 1914: Design in a New Age | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Toronto | until 12.10.2015

"One hundred years ago, the ROM opened its doors to the public. Europe was plunged into the Great War. This cataclysmic world event marked the end of a social-political system that had existed for centuries and signalled the birth of the modern movement. It changed the way people looked at their lives and viewed their future.

Around 1914: Design in a New Age, explores a pivotal period of innovation and experimentation as artists struggled to reconcile quality design with the emergence of mass production, and the new materials made available with technology."
