The Jewish Museum | Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist

The Jewish Museum | Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 06.05.2016 - 18.09.2016 

"Roberto Burle Marx (1909–1994) was one of the most influential landscape architects of the twentieth century, yet he is not a familiar figure outside of his native Brazil. He is best known for his iconic seaside pavements on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach, and for his abstract, geometric garden designs. But his work encompasses an enormous range of artistic forms and styles: Burle Marx was a painter and sculptor; a designer of textiles, jewelry, theater sets, and costumes; a ceramicist and stained-glass artist. He was an avid art collector, a talented baritone, a consummate cook, and a visionary self-taught botanist and ecologist. For him, all these endeavors were equally important, facets of one another."

Les Arts Décoratifs | Roger Tallon, Design in Motion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Paris | 08.09.2016 - 08.01.2017

"The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is paying tribute to Roger Tallon (1929-2011), one of the great pioneers of French industrial design, with this major retrospective. “Roger Tallon, Design in Motion” explores every facet of his personality and work, now possible thanks to the archives he donated to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs before he died in 2011. During his 60-year career, he forged a radically new approach to design, rooted in the world of industry yet open to every domain of contemporary creation."

 RISD MUSEUM | All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Providence | 08.04.2016 - 11.09.2016

"All of Everything is the first major exhibition to focus on the exuberant style and playful aesthetic of Oldham’s runway opus of the 1990s. “We were always throwing curve balls,” Oldham recalls. “I felt I had something to say and it was meaningful and had duality and juxtaposition.” Since then, the multi-talented creator has mastered nearly every element of design—from furniture to film—and his innovative, bricolage approach earned him an honorary doctorate degree from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2014."

"After World War I, a unique modernization and design project that would go down in architectural history as Das Neue Frankfurt (“New Frankfurt”) got underway in the metropolis on the Main.Yet it was a far more comprehensive undertaking that also encompassed political, social and pan-cultural dimensions and aspired towards no less ambitious a goal than to create a new city and a new society. In the exhibition New Everything Frankfurt’s Museum Angewandte Kunst will present a systematic survey of the typography and graphic design of that era for the first time.The exhibition will focus above all on the 1920s, while also extending the time span to the post-World War II era and into the 1980s, and will moreover be enhanced by spotlights on the vibrant world of present-day design."

"The fascination of the textile as a working material – in all its diversity – is the central focus of this exhibition developed by the textile course of the department of design at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle. Exemplary final works and other student works shed light on the potential offered for textile design by experimental working methods, which can lead to concrete applications in the free market – several examples of which can also be seen."

The display is not understood as a complete survey of developments in fashion illustration, but rather as an overview of the phenomena of European fashion illustration on the basis of highlights selected from the MAK Collection."

Museum für Kunst un Gerwerbe Hamburg | Sneakers: Design for fas fleet | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Hamburg | 13.05.2016 - 28.08.2016

"Sneakers first attracted widespread attention in 1985 when they became associated with youth and hip-hop culture. It was also the year in which Joschka Fischer wore trainers when he was sworn in as environment minister for the State of Hesse. At the time this earned him the nickname the “tennis shoe minister”. Sneakers have surreptitiously evolved from special-purpose sports shoes and quietly sneaked into the midst of our society. They have become a worldwide phenomenon and a vital accessory for the modern city-dweller. Some dozen major brands – and hundreds of lesser ones – are in competition to find favour with consumers."

With this exhibition the furniture and interiors designed by the architects, sculptors and designers of the Amsterdam School get the recognition they deserve for the first time, while revealing that the expressive furnishings functioned within an exuberant, colorful environment."

Cologne | 26.08.2016 - 11.12.2016

"There was a reason why Willy Fleckhaus (1925-1983) was nicknamed 'Germany’s most expensive pencil'. Like no-one else, he defined the visual culture of the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Willy Fleckhaus amalgamated the rationale of Swiss graphic design with American editorial design, thus becoming an international role model for at least one generation of magazine and book designers, advertisers and photographers."

Paris | 11.03.2016 - 22.08.2016 

"With over seventy items of furniture and around fifty unpublished drawings, the exhibition on Pierre Paulin enables visitors to discover his work through fifty years of creation. As a designer and interior designer, Paulin sculpted space, laid it out and "landscaped it". His work was always motivated by a quest for comfort and a new lifestyle – at floor level! A chance for visitors to try out re-edited versions of several of his iconic seats! Also on show: outstanding pieces in the history of design, projects that were never produced, or which he edited himself – like "Tapis-siège" carpet seat, the "Déclive" recliner and the "Tente" – together with rare pieces from the Fifties and various prototypes."

Barcelona | 23.03.2016 - 28.08.2016

"The exhibition showcases the work of over 120 African artists and creators and illustrates how design fuels economic and political changes. "Making Africa" speaks, from Africa, of a new continent “under construction” and places emphasis on its possibilities over its problems. The exhibition offers a new tale of Africa, an invitation to value the continent from a brand new perspective. Many of the major African capitals are seeing the consolidation of a generation that, around culture and through creation and design, is defending its right to build itself in freedom, without foreign tutelage and contradicting the stereotypes projected from the West."
