Deutsches Architekturmuseum | SOS Brutalism – Save the Concrete Monsters!

Deutsches Architekturmuseum | SOS Brutalism – Save the Concrete Monsters! | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Frankfurt | 09.11.2017 - 02.04.2018
"The DAM is presenting the first-ever global survey of the Brutalist architecture of the 1950s to 1970s. The term Brutalism does not originate from the word “brutal”, but rather béton brut—the French term for exposed concrete. Brutalist architecture celebrates rawness and the bare construction. [...] The expressive style emerged during a period of experimentation and societal upheaval. Today many are at risk of being demolished. In light of this, the #SOSBrutalism campaign extends the exhibition online with a database of over 1,000 projects."

CaixaForum Madrid | Adolf Loos. Espacios privados

CaixaForum Madrid | Adolf Loos. Espacios privados | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Madrid | 28.03.2018 - 24.06.2018

"En la concepción arquitectónica de Adolf Loos (Moravia, 1870 – Austria, 1933), la noción de espacio doméstico ocupa un lugar preponderante. Junto a sus múltiples proyectos y construcciones de tiendas de moda, cafés, hoteles y edificios públicos, Loos concede una vital importancia a los espacios interiores donde se desarrolla la vida privada. La vivienda constituye la esfera íntima, el refugio del individuo frente a la vida social.


Valores como intimidad, privacidad o confortabilidad encuentran en el diseño de espacios y el uso del mobiliario doméstico de Loos un ejemplo de las nuevas formas de la cultura del hábitat. Esta exposición indaga en la revolución estética de Loos en el ámbito de lo privado, puesta en el contexto de la cultura y el arte de la Viena de principios del siglo XX."

Museu del Disseny de Barcelona | Design does. For better and for worse

Museu del Disseny de Barcelona | Design does. For better and for worse | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 24.03.2018 - 13.05.2018

"Design does. For better and for worse is an exhibition that collectively draws the boundaries of how design gives shape to the global challenges of our society, sometimes to improve things and sometimes the opposite. It is a project that aims to transcend the limits of space, time and conventional formats and which explores the responsibility design has in its impact on industry, human beings, social systems and cultural values. It also reflects on the role designers have and will have in the future as humanistic and strategic providers of solutions and / or agents of change."

Freer and Sackler | To Dye For: Ikats from Central Asia

Freer and Sackler | To Dye For: Ikats from Central Asia | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Washington | 24.03.2018 - 29.07.2018
"With their brilliant designs, ikats are among the most distinct fabrics produced in Central Asia. The name, derived from the Malaysian word for “to tie,” refers to the distinct technique of making these textiles: bundles of threads are painstakingly patterned by repeated binding and dyeing before being woven. In present-day Uzbekistan and the Fergana Valley, the fabric is known as abri (cloud) and the technique as abrbandi (tying clouds), referring to the fluid yet bold motifs in bright colors.[...] To Dye For: Ikats from Central Asia brings together about thirty of the finest historical Central Asian ikat hangings and coats from the Freer|Sackler collections, donated by Guido Goldman, as well as seven of Oscar de la Renta’s iconic creations. The aim is to explore the original use and function of these dazzling fabrics and the enduring appeal of their extraordinary designs."

Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas | Los díez en los campos expandidos. Diseño de producto y poesía visual

Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas | Los díez en los campos expandidos. Diseño de producto y poesía visual | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Madrid | 23.03.2018 - 02.09.2018

"El trabajo de los díez, el tándem formado por Javier Díez, diseñador industrial, y José Luis Díez, interiorista, se presenta en una exposición dual en la que cohabitan objetos del ámbito del diseño de producto junto con piezas de poesía visual, ilustrando todos ellos la fuerte carga del componente conceptual que caracteriza su obra.

Estos dos hermanos madrileños comenzaron su carrera como diseñadores, desarrollando productos que cumplían con el consabido binomio forma/función. Pero años más tarde, comenzaron a ensayar con artefactos de autoencargo, a crear objetos vinculados a la poesía visual, a jugar con las formas y su significado. Desde entonces mantienen ambas facetas creativas, que sin duda se han ido retroalimentando una a la otra. Pero que jamás se han confundido."

Artipelag | Bloomsbury Spirit

Artipelag | Bloomsbury Spirit | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Gustavsberg | 23.03.2018 - 30.09.2018
"The group was active in Great Britain during the beginning of the 20th century and included amongst others Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell, Clive Bell and Roger Fry. The exhibition Bloomsbury Spirit is based on the group’s boldness, optimism and anti-authoritarian approach and inspires new ways of thinking. To showcase their inclusive modernism, the creative range of painting, photography, interior design, textiles, patterns, literature, furniture design, books, graphics, dance, garden art and fashion will be represented.
The group consisted of a loose collection of authors, artists, politicians, economists, historians, critics and mathematicians. At first, they were just friends and students, but later on they broke through as their time’s new thinkers. The members loathed heroism and authority. For them, modernism meant that old and new could be put together in any conceivable patterns and combinations. They celebrated imagination, feeling and creation without rejecting reason."

Art Institute of Chicago | Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating

Art Institute of Chicago | Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Chicago | 22.03.2018 - 26.08.2018
"The chair is the holy grail of objects for many designers, including Max Lamb (English, born 1980). He has created more than 400 seats, most of them produced in limited numbers due to the complexity of their manufacture and his interest in trying new things. [...] By focusing on seats—one element of Lamb’s practice—this exhibition illuminates his working methods and passion for research, inquiry, and experimentation. A selection of chairs and stools is accompanied by photographs, maquettes, tools, and videos that illustrate how they were made. Interested first and foremost in the exercise of making, Lamb is intent on learning through doing, creating work in series, mastering new techniques and gaining an understanding of specific materials. By drawing associations between individual pieces, he suggests that each is part of a larger whole and calls attention not only to his methods but also to his interest in playing with modernist traditions of form and function through shifts in scale, size, shape, and material."

"​The Baltic Material Assemblies’ presents architecture from the Baltic states, investigating the materialities and infrastructural and cultural connections that seem to have persevered the political borders and conflict lines that changing regimes have aimed to introduce in the region. The exhibition investigates the projections of futurity as they seem to be inscribed into geologies, infrastructure and architecture."

Cologne | 17.03.2018 - 01.07.2018
"Kaiser’s smiling coffee pot, the AEG ‘honeycomb logo’, the lettering at the Berlin Reichstag (Dem Deutschen Volke / To the German People): everybody knows these design icons that were created by the Hamburg-born artist and autodidact Peter Behrens. The 150th anniversary of the great German designer and architect’s birth will be on 14 April 2018. His work from around the turn of the century leading up to the Werkbund exhibition in Cologne in particular left a mark on the history of art and design. [...] Presented in eight different thematic spaces, the exhibition at the Cologne Museum of Applied Arts (MAKK) will feature around 230 objects [...] The focus will be on Peter Behrens’ early oeuvre, in particular on his stylistic transition from art nouveau to early modern objectivism. Furthermore, the exhibition will also highlight the traces he left in the Rhineland."

Peabody Essex Museum | Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Salem | 16.12.2017 - 08.04.2018
"Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style is the first exhibition to explore the art, image and personal style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefully designed garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling. For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona, defied labels and carved out a truly progressive, independent life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy — compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation, and restrained color palettes — continues to capture the popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers of our day."

26.01.2018 - 01.04.2018

"For the last 60 years Tone Vigeland (born 1938) has been a defining force in studio jewelry and material-based art in Norway and abroad. [...] Vigeland's distinct formal language has always formed the foundation of her artistic practice. As a skilled craftperson who profoundly understands her chosen material, with a total control of her chosen media Vigeland has created a body of work that transcends trends regardless of wheter the objects are meant to adorn the body or function as entities in dialogue with the respective space and viewer."

Centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu | Together ! The New Architecture of the Collective  | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Hornu | 25.03.2017 - 01.07.2018
"Housing is scarce – that much has become evident in the last few years. As real estate prices in big cities continue to skyrocket, conventional ideas of housing development prove unable to meet demands. The reaction to these challenges has been a silent revolution in contemporary architecture – towards collective building and living. 

Using models, films, and walk-in displays, the exhibition "Together! The New Architecture of the Collective" addresses this global phenomenon by presenting a broad array of collective building and living projects from Europe, Asia, and the United States. An overview of historical precedents for the current wave of collectives demonstrates that the idea of collectivity has been a recurring theme in the history of architecture, from the reformist ideas of the nineteenth century to the hippies and squatters of the twentieth who touted the slogan "Make love, not lofts"

Cristobal Balenciaga Museoa | Cristóbal Balenciaga, fashion and heritage | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Getaria | 24.03.2018 - 27.01.2019

"This year, 2018 – European Year of Heritage – marks the 50th anniversary since the Master of Haute Couture retired in 1968. An opportunity to reflect on the heritage value of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work from the moment of closing his salons and stopping activity at his workshops in Paris, Madrid, Barcelona and San Sebastián. This is the starting point of the exhibition Cristóbal Balenciaga, fashion and heritage, the moment that Balenciaga’s creations left the streets and salons to inhabit the archives, galleries and museums. No longer lending beauty to bodies to become admired as beautiful in themselves. Leaving the covers of the fashion magazines for those dedicated to art and losing their exclusive patina to become accessible to all publics in all social circles. In this dialogue of Fashion and Heritage we want to follow both roads, precisely taking 1968 as the year of their confluence. One runs from that date until today, revealing to the public the path of patrimonial consolidation intimately linked to our reason to be as a museum, and the other, starting in 1917 – opening date of his first atelier in San Sebastián – until the moment his maisons closed their doors, in order to understand Balenciaga’s creative progression, evolution and revolution since those early days.

Lyon | 23.03.2018 - 16.09.2018

"L’œuvre de Warhol est si riche qu’elle n’a pas encore dit son dernier mot, loin de là. Peu d’expositions reviennent sur le génie d’illustrateur, de publicitaire et d'éditeur de l’artiste, laissant souvent la place aux œuvres plastiques qui ont marqué visuellement et esthétiquement toute la deuxième moitié du ⅩⅩe siècle. Andy Warhol s’est pourtant souvent occupé au cours de sa carrière de dessiner des campagnes commerciales, politiques, des objets marquants de la culture pop, d’inviter ses amis à des soirées de gala, des levées de fonds, de prêter son trait et parfois son visage à des projets aussi variés qu’éphémères."

Designmuseo Helsinki | Timo Sarpaneva | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Helsinki | 23.03.2018 - 23.09.2018

"Timo Sarpaneva (1926–2006) is best known for his designs of glassware and art objects. Originally trained as a graphic designer, Timo Sarpaneva’s work included the famous Iittala i-logo from 1956. Together with Tapio Wirkkala and Kaj Franck, Sarpaneva helped establish the international fame of Finnish design.


Timo Sarpaneva’s versatile, inquisitive and open-minded creative spirit led him also to work with metal, ceramics and textiles. In this exhibition, Sarpaneva’s classic designs appear together with his rarely seen sculptural and spatial works that have been in storage for many years. The rarer works include Pack Ice, consisting of 485 glass parts and made by Sarpaneva together with glassblowers of the Iittala glassworks."

Montreal | 22.03.2018 - 02.09.2018 

"Today, after a long period of questioning science’s capacity to provide answers to architecture’s social mandate, architects and designers are once again enchanted with the concept of the laboratory. This exhibition investigates the lab as a recurring and productive allegory for experimentation, and imagines new modes of transdisciplinary research threading together science and architecture. A series of case studies from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are presented through archival material from the CCA collection, as well as models, scientific instruments, and photographs on loan from historical and scientific institutions across North America."

Wien | 21.03.2018 - 07.10.2018
"Anlässlich des 100. Todestages von Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Otto Wagner und Koloman Moser richtet sich 2018 der Fokus vieler Museen auf die Wiener Moderne um 1900. Das Hofmobiliendepot widmet als eines der größten Möbelmuseen der Welt den führenden Architekten und Gestaltern der Wiener Moderne – Otto Wagner, Josef Hoffmann und Adolf Loos – eine eigene Ausstellung. Wagner, Hoffmann und Loos gehörten zu den Wegbereitern der modernen Formgebung, deren kreative Impulse bis heute ausstrahlen. 

Die Wiener Moderne um 1900 war im Möbeldesign ein wahres Laboratorium für Gestaltung. Im Vordergrund stand, den Historismus der Wiener Ringstraßenzeit durch moderne Entwürfe abzulösen. Otto Wagner formulierte die gemeinsame Zielsetzung folgendermaßen: "Die Kunst unserer Zeit muss moderne, von uns geschaffene Formen bieten, die unserem Können, unserem Tun und Lassen entsprechen.“"

"With the solo exhibition GUSTAV PEICHL: 15 Buildings for His 90th, the MAK is celebrating the renowned Austrian architect’s 90th birthday. In 2013, Gustav Peichl donated all of his architectural sketches, designs, and plans for his Austrian building projects to the museum. In a career spanning over 50 years, in which he created a total of 70 buildings, the versatile and prolific architect has personally selected 15 buildings—from between 1958 and 2011—for the MAK exhibition, affording a unique insight into his oeuvre. Sketches and plans that for the most part have never previously been shown to the public are being presented together with largely familiar objects, thus bringing his architectural theories into focus."

Vitra Design Museum | Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Weil am Rhein | 17.03.2018 - 09.09.2018
"Nightclubs and discothèques are hotbeds of contemporary culture. Since the 20th century, they have been centres of the avant-garde that question the established codes of social life and experiment with different realities, merging interior and furniture design, graphics and art with sound, light, fashion and special effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. »Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today« is the first exhibition to give a comprehensive overview of the design history of the nightclub, examining its cultural context. Examples range from Italian clubs of the 1960s created by the protagonists of Radical Design to the legendary Studio 54 where Andy Warhol was a regular, from the Palladium in New York designed by Arata Isozaki to more recent concepts by the OMA architecture studio for the Ministry of Sound in London. Featuring films and vintage photographs, posters, flyers and fashion, the exhibition incorporates music, light and spatial installations to take visitors on a fascinating journey through a world of glamour and subcultures – always in search of the night that never ends."

"At the eastern end of Taksim Square in the heart of Istanbul, the Atatürk Cultural Center (AKM) is one of the city’s most important cultural buildings and a prime example of modernist architecture. Built in 1966 and renewed in 1977, it serves as a catalyst to understanding the history of modern Turkey, with political and technological developments reflected in AKM’s destiny. The exhibition looks at the ongoing story of this building and how it relates to broader issues of contemporary design. The existing – now derelict – cultural center and the proposal by Tabanlioglu Architects for its “re-composition” is revealed through models and complemented by archival documents and information on the design process."
