Stedelijk Museum | Philippe Apeloig – Using Type

Stedelijk Museum | Philippe Apeloig – Using Type | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Amsterdam | 31.10.2015 - 24.01.2015

"Each one of us is confronted by typography every day: from the digits on our alarm clock, to the price ticket on a loaf of bread and the label in our clothing. Philippe Apeloig’s mastery of typography is such that he is able to play a subtle and well-chosen game with characters and fonts. For Apeloig, letters are never autonomous images; even when distorted, they always serve as carriers of a clear message".

Walker Art Center | Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia

Walker Art Center | Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Minneapolis | 24.10.2015 - 28.02.2016

"This Walker-organized exhibition, assembled with the assistance of the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, examines the intersections of art, architecture, and design with the counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s. A time of great upheaval, this period witnessed a variety of radical experiments that challenged societal and professional expectations, overturned traditional hierarchies, explored new media and materials, and formed alternative communities and new ways of living and working together. During this key moment, many artists, architects, and designers individually and collectively began a search for a new kind of utopia, whether technological, ecological, or political, and with it offered a critique of the existing society."

Helsinki | 09.10.2015 - 13.03.2016

[...] The exhibition will feature furniture, toys, books, clothing, school architecture, playgrounds and public spaces, posters and advertising, health-care and safety products, art projects and aids for children."

Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao | Messages off the Wall | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Bilbao | 06.10.2015 - 18.01.2016

"The poster as we know it began to take shape in the second half of the 19th century, at a time of major economic, political and social change that would eventually lead to the  appearance of a new mercantile order, the proliferation of brands and new consumer habits. In this context, for over a century the poster provided a response to the need to advertise events and political ideas and to promote specific products or tourist destinations. Messages off the Wall: Posters in the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum Collection (1886-1975) is to feature more than two hundred works from the Museum's large, but little known collection of old posters."

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao | Making Africa | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Bilbao | 30.10.2015 - 21.02.2016

"The world as we know it is in transformation – politically, economically, socially, culturally and technologically. Anyone wanting to know how design can facilitate or even accelerate this change would be well advised to look to the south, especially at Africa, where the changes are very evident. In 2012, for example, more mobile phones were registered throughout Africa than in the United States or Europe, namely some 650 million. Spearheading this shift is a new generation of thinkers and doers whose multidisciplinary output proposes innovative solutions for the continent and the rest of the world – while simultaneously turning our traditional understanding of design on its head."

This process, without moulding, produces curved shapes allowing the material to express itself in a natural, fluid and extraordinarily light movement."

"Amb l’objectiu de reflexionar al voltant del concepte de modernitat i comprendre com els fets històrics i culturals influencien l’art i l’arquitectura, l’exposició reuneix a l’emblemàtic espai del Roca Barcelona Gallery (Joan Güell, 211) una mostra dels edificis més representatius de la Barcelona del 24 al 75.

L’exposició repassa aquest recorregut històric i arquitectònic a través de 20 edificis."
