upcoming shows and exhibits
i thought i'd create a thread where we could keep track of new and interesting shows related to art and design other than fashion...
please post anything that may be of interest to our members..
ALSO---please state the city where the event is to take place...
http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/misc/spacer.gifStarting next week, the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture will present the first American exhibition of the work of Bruno Mathsson, the Swedish 20th-century modernist. “Bruno Mathsson: Architect and Designer” will include photographs, drawings and models from the 1920s to the 1980s; furniture like the bentwood chair; and a digital slide show of his interiors from the 1930s to the 1970s. March 22 through June 10 at 18 West 86th Street, (212) 501-3023, www.bgc.bard.edu. A show of products by women working in graphic, textile, furniture and ceramic design, “17 Swedish Designers,” will be held simultaneously at the TriBeCa store Just Scandinavian, 161 Hudson Street (Laight Street), (212) 334-2556.

Allready running at the National Portrait Gallery London 15th Feb - 28 May
Face of Fashion
Face of Fashion focuses on the portraits of five outstanding fashion photographers from Europe and America: Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Corinne Day, Steven Klein, Paolo Roversi and Mario Sorrenti. It is the first exhibition of its kind, celebrating the innovation and diversity of current fashion portraiture.
In the contemporary fashion world, models, actors, musicians and designers frequently swap places. The exhibition highlights the relationship between fashion and celebrity and illustrates the extraordinary intimacy that often develops between photographer and subject.
Great thread idea!
Until May 7th at the Tate Modern in London (and worth a plane trip to me at least)...Gilbert & George Retrospective:
Gilbert & George place themselves, their thoughts and their feelings at the centre of their art, and almost all of the images they use are gathered within walking distance of their home in London’s East End. Yet their pictures capture a broad human experience, encompassing an astonishing range of emotions and themes, from rural idylls to gritty images of a decaying London; from fantastical brightly-coloured panoramas to raw examinations of humanity stripped bare; from sex advertisements to religious fundamentalism.
From the beginning, they wanted to communicate beyond the narrow confines of the art world, adopting the slogan ‘Art for All’. As a result they have joined the very small handful of artists to become household names, and their impeccably-dressed figures are instantly recognisable to the general public. Bringing together a selection of pictures that spans their entire 40-year career, it is fitting that Gilbert &George: Major Exhibition is the largest retrospective of any artist to be held at Tate Modern.
George was born in Devon in 1942. Gilbert was born in Italy in 1943, in a small village in the Dolomites. They met as students on the sculpture course at St Martins School of Art, London, where they exhibited together and soon began to create art together. They adopted the identity of ‘living sculptures’ in both their art and their daily lives, becoming not only creators, but also the art itself.
They established their reputation in 1969 with THE SINGING SCULPTURE. Standing together on a table, they danced and sang the Flanagan and Allen standard ‘Underneath the Arches’ – a song in which two tramps describe the pleasures of sleeping rough. It was a telling choice, harking back to prewar England and traditions of vaudeville, while also identifying with the fringes of society. Gilbert & George were invited to present THE SINGING SCULPTURE all over the world, sometimes for eight hours at a stretch. Realising, however, that they could reach only a handful of people at a time, they began to create films and pictures that could extend the idea of living sculpture without requiring their physical presence.
Lovely topic idea : )
I'm going to London in the summer (in June or July), and have been thinking of going to interesting exhibitions. Personally I am not too interested in the Face of Fashion-exhibition. Do you know any good ones coming up for summer?
Great thread idea :heart:
