Kemistry Gallery | Stefan Glerum | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

London | 17.07.2014 - 16.08.2014

"Stefan Glerum’s style is like a melting pot of illustration heritage. While its subconscious familiarity has universal appeal, his work is also a study point for those with knowledge of graphic design history. His work is inspired by early 20th Century movements such as Art Deco, Bauhaus, Italian Futurism and Russian Constructivism, which he combines with popular themes, executed in a style reminiscent of the clear line."

Palau Robert | The Path to Tohoku: Nature, Tradition and Innovation | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 04.07.2014 - 31.08.2014

"The exhibition features a selection of exhibits made using materials from Tohoku, ranging from everyday utensils to accessories and jewellery, craft items from this region that convey the ancient wisdom of Japan. After the earthquake, some workshops have managed in recent years to begin a gradual recovery and are thriving once again thanks to new and original products, while the area as a whole is reviving and the appreciation of traditional techniques is rising thanks to the collaboration of young designers."

"In 1934, Harrods hosted an exhibition called Modern Art for the Table featuring some of the greatest names of British art including Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, Laura Knight and Duncan Grant. Yet the display was not of their paintings but tea services, vases and wine glasses."

"Basques, petticoats, corolla skirts, pointed shoes, bright-coloured floral and striped prints, wasp-waist suits with straight skirts, strapless sheath dresses, cocktail dresses, rock crystal embroidery: such was the couture of the fifties. At the same time, though, a more relaxed style – close-fitting pullovers, pedal pushers, jeans – was being adopted by the baby boom generation."

"We see them all around us, they influence us. We may even be dependent on them. What a stripe means is very much linked to where, when and how it is used. The context is what adds meaning to the shape. But interpretation is also in the eye of the beholder: a single line can evoke completely different associations."

Rotterdam | 28.06.2014 - 30.08.2014

"Scarcity is the mother of invention. The urban planning projects, buildings, interior objects and consumer goods in Designing Scarcity show that shortages don’t have to constrain creativity: quite the contrary. Curated by Jan Boelen of Z33 (Hasselt, Belgium), the exhibition showcases a panoply of strategies used by designers and users to find novel solutions in the face of limitation."

"We have the best seats in the house! An exhibition of mid-century and architect-designed chairs from the collection of Lynda Jacobsen will fill our gallery through the month of July . Lynda’s fascination with chairs began over fifty years ago when she purchased an ice cream parlor chair at a yard sale, from then on she began collecting chairs. This exhibit features mid-century modern chairs from numerous architects. Don't miss the big chair in our yard either."

Philadelphia Museum of Art | The Main Dish

Philadelphia Museum of Art | The Main Dish | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Philadelphia | 01.07.2014 - 28.09.2014

"One of the most common assumptions about the kitchen is that it is a woman’s space. With this in mind, The Main Dish looks at how modern and contemporary kitchenware reflects attributes of the model homemaker. Like the objects that adorn our kitchen countertops and dinner tables, the homemaker is expected to offer a pleasing appearance and handle tasks with ease, all while keeping pace with ever-changing fashions. Drawn largely from the Museum’s notable collection of modern and contemporary design, this exhibition encourages visitors to ask questions about the seemingly inventive and useful features of everyday household items."

Textile Museum of Canada | Fashioning the Intangible: the conceptual clothing of Ying Gao

Textile Museum of Canada | Fashioning the Intangible: the conceptual clothing of Ying Gao | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Toronto | 07.05.2014 - 01.09.2014

"The expressive garments of Canadian designer Ying Gao appear to be made of air and light. Bridging art, science and technology, Gao’s clothing materializes the immaterial with interplay between matter and imagination, and between the tangible body and the infinite expression of its embellishment. Poetic effects are developed through computational systems, motors, sensors, embedded electronics, pneumatic and interactive technologies – and with a distinctive aesthetic grace. A focus on urban cultures and transformation is central to this exhibition, which presents six installations produced between 2008 and 2013."

"In an age when jobs are in short supply and workers have lost their visibility, overalls and work clothes – timeless garments that never age – have turned into a fashion genre.

In a city of the third millennium that is increasingly turning into a street, the only way to blend in is to merge into the metropolitan landscape and become a streetscape."

Zürich | 11.07.2014 - 19.10.2014

"Seductive, provocative, eccentric and, above all, powerful – fashion photography experiments between commerce and creativity, mainstream and sub-culture, industry and art. More than just purely commissioned work and aesthetic documentation, it not only records the Zeitgeist, individual longings and society’s dreams, it also influences, stimulates and encourages imitation."

Oslo | 02.02.2014 - 31.08.2014

"To celebrate the bicentennial of Norway's constitution, the National Museum presents three historical exhibitions under the common title “Norway 1814”, in three different venues: the National Gallery, the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, and the National Museum – Architecture. These exhibitions will explore the art of the period in a new light. [...]

Furniture, glass, ceramics, fashion and architecture all express new ideas about democracy and national independence in the transitional period from the opulent splendour of the rococo to the simplicity of the Empire style, which built on the ideals of antiquity."

"A collection of special objects, which provide unconventional relationships with users, tell and generate stories. Objects have an influence on our behavior, they are active agents and not mere instruments. The rituals that govern these relationships can be as absurd as transcendent."

"Nagasaka's works show an interest in finding modern solutions for tired, found objects through poetic re-purposing techniques. The 'Flat Tables' series of works has been in development since 2009 and sees found workstations and tabletops layered with coloured epoxy resin so as to reveal and celebrate the textures of the woods and their time-weathered surfaces."

Architektur Galerie Berlin | Cukrowicz Nachbaur | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Berlin | 04.07.2014 - 16.08.2014

"Cukrowicz and Nachbaur’s first exhibition in Germany is thus intentionally restrained in design and translates the expectation of “modesty and self-evidence” that the architects also advocate in their architecture. The central exhibition element is an over-sized desk with a number of project dossiers and numerous material samples. Eight projects are presented that each developed in varying geographic and topographical contexts and represent different design strategies. The dossiers provide an introduction to the history and concept of the buildings. Their surroundings, from which Cukrowicz and Nachbaur derive materiality and form, are depicted though individual traces of materials, intended to be touched, held and combined with each other."

MUDAC | Wunderkammer - Carte blanche to graphic designer Marian Bantjes | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Lausanne | 02.07.2014 - 05.10.2014

"Marian Bantjes is a graphic designer, typographer, illustrator and blogger. Working from a small island near Vancouver, Canada, she has developed a very personal graphical style combining natural materials such as flowers, pasta and sugar with the most advanced computer techniques. Her work, a mixture of tradition, style and technology, is highly unusual and personal, distancing itself from international utilitarian graphic design through its treatment of unfamiliar, generally non-commercial subjects, strongly influenced by contemporary experimental graphic design."
