Palais Galliera | Margiela / Galliera, 1989-2009

Palais Galliera | Margiela / Galliera, 1989-2009 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Paris | 03.03.2018 - 15.07.2018 

"This exhibition, the first retrospective in Paris devoted to Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela, traces the career, from spring-summer 1989 to spring-summer 2009, of a designer who not only questioned the structure of garments but also challenged the structure of the fashion system. [...] Margiela’s conceptual approach challenged the fashion aesthetics of his time. His way of constructing a garment involved deconstructing it, exposing the inside, the lining, and the unfinished parts, and revealing the different stages of manufacture: pleats, shoulder pads, patterns, bastings and all. [...] Using more than 130 silhouettes, videos of défilés, House archives and special installations, the Margiela / Galliera exhibition offers us an unprecedented look at one of the most influential contemporary fashion designers."

Fundació Joan Miró | Itō Shinsui. Tradition and Modernity

Fundació Joan Miró | Itō Shinsui. Tradition and Modernity | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 01.03.2018 - 20.05.2018 

"In the early twentieth century, a group of artists and publishers rekindled traditional Japanese art through shin hanga, an art movement that followed in the footsteps of ukiyo-e and succeeded in preserving a space for the printmaking tradition in the context of the new times, endowing it with a new sensibility. In this exhibition the Fundació Joan Miró is featuring the work of one of the great masters of shin hanga, Itō Shinsui (1898-1972), whose artistic and aesthetic approach helps us reveal, once again, the subtle and deep connections between the work of Joan Miró and Japanese art and thought."

Alvar Aalto Museum | The Florence of the north. Alvar Aalto's architecture in Jyväskylä

Alvar Aalto Museum | The Florence of the north. Alvar Aalto's architecture in Jyväskylä | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Jyväskylä | 25.09.2017 - 04.03.2018

"This exhibition opens a window on some of Alvar Aalto’s unrealised visions and on some of his designs for Jyväskylä, which became reality. Aalto took the first steps of his career as an architect in the city for which he designed dozens of buildings and other projects between the 1920s and the 1970s. In the mind of the architect, the lush, rolling landscape of Central Finland could be compared with the hills of Tuscany. Aalto had an important role as someone who helped to develop the Jyväskylä townscape."

Architektur Galerie Berlin | Wiewiorra Hopp Schwark. Location and Illusion

Architektur Galerie Berlin | Wiewiorra Hopp Schwark. Location and Illusion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Berlin | 19.01.2018 - 03.03.2018

"The exhibition by Wiewiorra Hopp Schwark deals with their new extension for the tax office (Finanzamt) in Oranienburg, Germany, which is nearing completion. Although the construction task is a rather mundane one, the architects were faced with a special challenge. The tax office is located in the former administrative building of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, meaning that the new building is directly docked onto a historically “contaminated” substance. Given this context, the architects developed a design concept that connects the site as a source of inspiration to the idea of an illusion as a concrete creative medium."

Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya | William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 23.02.2018 - 20.05.2018

"The Arts and Crafts movement, linked to design and decorative arts, was born in Great Britain around 1880 and it was developed until the First World War. It spread rapidly throughout America and Europe until reaching Japan. Its maximum ideologist was the artist and writer William Morris (1834-1896) and took its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, founded in London in 1887.[...] The exhibition would be the first by Morris and the Arts & Crafts to be held in Spain and will present the masterpieces from this artistic movement."

CID Grand Hornu | Do you see the king? Patrick Marchal

CID Grand Hornu | Do you see the king? Patrick Marchal | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

22.10.2017 - 11.02.2018

"A Citizen of interstellar spaaaaaaace with sculptural ambitions and metallic structures, Patrick Marchal plays with colour and iconic symbols. What matters “is the message that is conveyed”. A silversmith-visual artist, creator of Unidentified Prestigious Objects with evocative names, he explodes classical conventions of jewellery, imposing himself through a critical approach and scathing humour. No one is bound by the impossible, so therefore everything is permitted. Marked by a visual culture, his work expresses a reality that is taken to the extreme and revealed in objects of finery. The metal or steel become bombs, cartridges…and adornments!"

"Beginning in August, Phoenix Art Museum presents A Tribute to James Galanos, a retrospective dedicated to the iconic American fashion designer. Featuring more than 40 couture-quality, ready-to-wear ensembles and accessories, including an ensemble worn and donated by former First Lady Nancy Reagan, the exhibition will illuminate the designer’s influence and legacy with objects from the 1950s through the 1990s.“A black dress,” Galanos once said, “reveals everything: line, cut, drape, seaming. It must be perfection.” From his selection of the finest fabrics to his impeccable construction and finishing, the designer’s exacting standards resulted in an elegant simplicity that became a hallmark of his work."

Museu del Disseny de Barcelona | Adolf Loos. Private Spaces | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 14.12.2017 - 25.02.2018 

"The exhibition Adolf Loos. Private Spaces presents, for the first time in Spain, a vast display of the work of this outstanding figure in Viennese architecture, a pioneer in the debate between spaces in public and private life. The show highlights the aesthetic revolution led by Loos (1870-1933) when, in the Austrian capital at the turn of the twentieth century, he rebelled against the Viennese Secession, proposing economy in architectural construction and design, reviving the classical column and facing and the traditional values of the classical style."

La Triennale di Milano | The Bicycle Renaissance

La Triennale di Milano | The Bicycle Renaissance | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Milano | 02.03.2018 - 02.04.2018
"After two hundred years the bicycle is showing all its vitality. The vitality of the bicycle as an instrument of urban and sustainable mobility for cities and metropolitan areas and as an emblem of a new way of thinking about production in the fourth industrial revolution.
Two hundred years of history, 3 thousand firms and 7 thousand employees in Italy alone, both a means of transport and a sports product, an object of design of high technological value. Banca IFIS and Triennale di Milano celebrate the rebirth of the bicycle with an exhibition that highlights the vitality of the two wheels: not only an instrument of mobility around cities and metropolitan areas, but also an object on which a an innovative production model is hinged. Through fifteen models of bicycles, the exhibition narrates the story of the evolution and of the different variations of the two wheels: city bikes, racing ones, transportation bikes, designer bikes, carbon bikes, steel ones all the way to custom-made bikes, realized thanks to new digital manufacturing technologies. In fact, the bicycle appears today as an emblematic product representing the revolution that today transforms not only new production modes but also new ways of consuming/using the product."

Design museum Gent | Unfold — Designer of the Year 2017 | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Gent | 27.10.2017 - 04.03.2018

"A Belgian designer has been awarded Designer of the Year every year since 2006. Past laureates include Nathalie Dewez, Vincent Van Duysen, and Stefan Schöning. This year, the title goes to design studio Unfold, founded in 2002 by Claire Warnier and Dries Verbruggen. Unfold garnered global recognition with the l’Artisan Electronique project (2010), a 3D ceramics printer with a virtual pottery wheel. They call into question the conventional roles of designer, author, producer, and consumer and in a critical manner combine artisanal know-how, high-tech production models, and recent digital evolutions. Unfold challenges us to consider these new connections and how we wish to further ‘design’ our future. At the occasion of this award, a twin exhibition is organised at Bank Delen in Antwerp (27.09.2017 – 22.10.2017) and at Design museum Gent (27.10.2017 – 4.03.2018)."

Montreal | 13.10.2017 - 04.03.2018
"The greystone buildings standing in Montreal today are essential tools for understanding the city. A deep study of their material history from the late seventeenth century to the early twentieth century demonstrates how geology, topography, politics, ethnicity, and culture, as well as changes in economy and technology, have shaped the city through the centuries. Conceived as a photographic mission conducted by Phyllis Lambert and Richard Pare through Montréal neighbourhoods in 1973 and 1974, the photographic series of greystone reveals the relationship between city growth, building type, and individuals."

"This display explores the complex multiple lives of scissors; everyday objects, universal tools but also ambiguous ‘things’, surrounded by superstition, myth and symbolism. From antiquity to modern times, scissors have remained irreplaceable and indispensable tools that also reveal an intimate human bond; their worn surfaces bearing witness to lives lived. The Secret Life of Scissors explores these different narratives in a sequence of themes: life and death, fairy tales, crime, punk and more, constantly mirroring the double-edged nature of this familiar yet mysterious object."

New York | 05.12.2017 - 05.05.2018
"The fashionable body is a cultural construct that has shifted throughout history to emphasize different shapes and proportions. However, the fashionable ideal does not feel so fluid in daily life. It can appear to be a fixed expectation, affecting how we view and treat our bodies, as well as how we view the bodies of others. The Body: Fashion and Physique explores the complex history of the “ideal” fashion body and the variety of body shapes that have been considered fashionable from the eighteenth century to the present. The exhibition also examines the relationship between fashion and body politics. Garments are supplemented with images from the popular press, fashion media, film, and other sources to demonstrate how the fashion industry has contributed to both the marginalization and celebration of certain body types within our culture."

MAXXI | Corpo, movimento, struttura. Contemporary jewellery and its construction | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Roma | 15.11.2017 - 18.02.2018
"A piece of jewellery is an object open to multiple readings, the first traditionally being aesthetic, regarding both the intrinsic beauty of the work and the idea of beauty that a jewel succeeds in conveying and transmitting. Alongside this plane exists structural research, in which what counts is the complexity of the structure of the jewellery and therefore the idea and the form. Here jewellery design finds many factors in common with architecture: albeit with different ends and scales, jewellery and architecture both relate to the body in movement, to which they respond with a structure capable of “inhabiting” that body or allowing it to inhabit a space."
