Design Museum Holon | Overview. Eyeglasses

Design Museum Holon | Overview. Eyeglasses | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Holon | 20.12.2016 - 29.04.2017

"Do we see the world as it really is? Does vision truly operate as we experience it, like a camera photographing a sequence of objective actions? And does the eye reflect the world in a direct and transparent manner? [...] Different cultural contexts guide us throughout this exhibition, which examines eyeglasses and vision from a human point of view. Like many material objects, eyeglasses have a rich biography; yet more than historical facts, this biography reflects systems of communication, layers of memory, and cultural and economic changes. The history of eyeglasses is a history of culture."

The Museum at FIT | Black Fashion Designers

The Museum at FIT | Black Fashion Designers | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 06.12.2016 - 16.05.2017

"There have been past exhibitions about individual black fashion designers, such as Stephen Burrows and Patrick Kelly, but this exhibition explores the experiences of several generations of fashion designers of African descent from the 1950s to the present. The curators acknowledge the problem of using race as a lens through which to view fashion design. [...] The designers featured in Black Fashion Designers work in a diverse range of individual styles; they do not all speak in one voice. The exhibition draws exclusively from the permanent collection of The Museum at FIT and is organized according to categories and themes, such as eveningwear, menswear, street style, experimental fashion, and African influences."

CID Grand Hornu | Ceci n’est pas une copie - Design between Innovation and Imitation

CID Grand Hornu | Ceci n’est pas une copie - Design between Innovation and Imitation | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Hornu | 27.11.2016 - 26.02.2017

"Copying is bad. Gaining wealth or fame with someone else’s creative work is morally reprehensible, and in principle forbidden by law. But are things really that clear-cut? Sometimes a copy – or something greatly resembling a copy – comes from an unexpected source. Sometimes it can even lead to surprising and liberating new insights. Is it then still substandard, a case of parroting something else, of shameless and unfair competition? Ceci n’est pas une copie sets out in search of the nature, significance and acceptance of copying strategies in contemporary design practice"

Hornu | 18.09.2016 - 04.12.2016

"The Brussels-based interior designer, Lionel Jadot has created a number of spectacular private living spaces. 

Yet unbeknown to his habitual customers, he is an unbridled creator of curiosities. Using the windfall of objects he collects here and there, from flea markets to rubbish tips, he creates surprising objects from combinations of the most ordinary recycled materials and objects."

Bata Shoe Museum | Fashion Victims: The Pleasures & Perils of Dress in the 19th Century

Bata Shoe Museum | Fashion Victims: The Pleasures & Perils of Dress in the 19th Century | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Toronto | Until 01.01.2017

"Transport yourself back to the 19th century where beautiful outfits fashioned by seamstresses and shoemakers supplied the privileged with enviable ensembles. Swathed from head to toe in expensive garments and shod in delicate footwear, fashion-forward women graced the boulevards and the ballrooms with their colourful presence. Their tailored male companions cut equally refined figures in their black coats, spotless white linens, lustrous top hats and shiny boots. Yet presenting an elegant exterior was not without its perils. The discomfort of constricting corsets and impossibly narrow footwear was matched by the dangers of wearing articles of fashion dyed with poison-laced colours and made of highly flammable materials. From the challenges faced by those who produced fashionable dress to the risks taken by those who wore it, this exhibition provides thought-provoking insights into what it means to be a fashion victim."

"Every age, every season has its fashions, but in the street or in parliament, at work or at play, everything wear is subject to rules. And of course those rules are there to be broken. “Tenue correcte exigée, quand le vêtement fait scandale” revisits the scandals that have marked the great turning points in fashion history from the 14th century to today."
