Het Nieuwe Institut | Wood

Het Nieuwe Institut | Wood | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Rotterdam | 16.05.2014 - 10.08.2014

"Many of the qualities attributed to wood - natural, warm, pure - originate in the romantic appreciation of the forest. As such, both the latest and the rich historical narratives of wood are inextricably linked to the forest. But the forest is also a man-made landscape, a production machine subject to market laws. And current experiments with wood are leading to surprising applications in and outside the domains of architecture and design. The rich story of WOOD is told through design objects, architectural projects and artifacts from national and international collections, and  references diverse geographical, historical and cultural contexts, including German motorways, Ikea furniture, the forests around the destroyed Chernobyl nuclear power plant and Milton Friedman’s pencil."

"Muntem una exposició. Un món d’objectes,mirades i relats convida els alumnes i els docents a conèixer i valorar la cultura material tal com es fa en un museu. Amb el muntatge d’una exposició, els alumnes aprenen a apreciar i reconèixer el patrimoni, descobreixen com funciona i qui treballa als museus, i quin valor tenen els objectes que constitueixen les col·leccions i les informacions que aquests ens transmeten.

En aquesta primera edició hi han participat l’Escola Bac de Roda, l’Escola Catalònia, l’Institut Quatre Cantons del Poblenou i l’Institut Front Marítim. Al llarg del curs 2013-2014 han treballat en aquest projecte i han “muntat” nou exposicions que es poden visitar fins al 29 de juny a l’edifici Disseny Hub Barcelona."

Learn about the materials and techniques found in archaeological textiles and the conditions that have allowed for their survival through this exhibition of Peruvian and Coptic textiles from the Textile Museum of Canada collection. Woven cloth, basketry, cordage and matting have been integral to every culture and every historical moment – Paleolithic to contemporary – providing direct evidence of social, political, and economic conditions over time and space.

Disseny Hub Barcelona | Out of the Box. Design made in Israel

Disseny Hub Barcelona | Out of the Box. Design made in Israel | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 02.06.2014 - 31.08.2014

"Does Israeli design exist? The general answer would be no. Not Israeli, rather a design made in Israel; made in this emotionally stressful environment, in an amalgamation of cultural, familial humanism, and mainly the passion to create ex-nihilo. In this exhibition, curated especially for the Barcelona Design Week by Design Museum Holon, they have chosen to present a group of artists who, each in his own way, express a thinking process taking place outside the box. Some express, in their work, an innovative technological thinking, some do it through forms or material, and others through a re-reading of us, the users."

MuVIM | Cada letra cuenta una historia - Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990

MuVIM | Cada letra cuenta una historia - Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Valencia | 10.06.2014 - 13.07.2014

"«Cada letra cuenta una historia. Diseño de tipografía en España desde 1990» [...] da a conocer el estado de la creación tipográfica más reciente realizada por nuestros diseñadores. Trata, asimismo, de acercar la tipografía a un público no especializado. De ahí que el hilo conductor de la exposición discurra en torno a una idea central: aunque apenas nos fijamos en ella, la letra forma parte esencial de nuestra vida cotidiana. Es el vehículo de los mensajes escritos y la forma visible de las palabras pero es, sobre todo, cultura o, como decía el prestigioso diseñador estadounidense Paul Rand, es un Arte con mayúsculas.

De todo esto son muy conscientes los diseñadores de tipos, quienes, además de tener en cuenta aspectos como la legibilidad y el posible uso de sus fuentes, las diseñan a partir de conceptos como el humor, la identidad, la ironía, la geometría, la historia, el arte, las relaciones multiculturales, etc... Por eso se podría decir que cada letra cuenta una historia."

La Sala Vinçon | Curro Claret - More Than This

La Sala Vinçon | Curro Claret - More Than This | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 04.06.2014 - 05.07.2014

"This exhibition is about making things, chairs in particular.

In 2010 we started with the Arrels Foundation (an organization that works to help people who live or have lived on the streets) designing stools with the help of a small piece of metal and reused materials. Over time with the same piece we also made benches, tables, lamps, hooks… even a shoe shop for Camper. Now I have designed another piece that complements the first part and allows a backrest to be put on it.

In the exhibition a collection of chairs made with these two pieces is displayed, some are made by people from the Arrels Foundation and others by people from very different backgrounds. None of the authors really come from the design field. In each case, the chairs are made using very different materials and techniques, the resources and skills available are those each individual has."

Centraal Museum | Fashion, the musical

Centraal Museum | Fashion, the musical | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Utrecht | 07.06.2014 - 30.11.2014

"More than 150 items are selected by Piet Paris from the Centraal Museum collection and presented in a surprising manner: as scenes in a musical.

Taking the visitor from backstage and the red carpet to – eventually- the stage, he shows  more than fifty looks by designers such as Comme des Garçons, Maison Martin Margiela, Iris van Herpen, Viktor & Rolf, but also 17th and 18th century costumes. Paris wants to show fashion in context, and not isolation. He combines fashion with objects, which he actually puts to use: ticking clocks, flower-filled vases and burning lights. He breaks the anonymity of the mannequin by giving each one a complete outfit, as well as a face drawn by the illustrator himself. Piet Paris literally brings the Centraal Museum collection to life."

"Mathematical concepts underpin many craft techniques, especially around textile construction, and can be key tools for artistic development. This exhibition’s intention is to unlock and demystify maths by showing unique and stimulating works of art, and also inviting in-depth consideration of contemporary artistic and craft practices in this wider context. Beauty is the First Test sets out to show that art and mathematics are more closely bound together than many perceive and that the enjoyment of one can enhance the understanding of the other."
