How Dutch Design Week Tackled Refugees, Fashion Industry
27/10/2015
How Dutch Design Week Tackled Refugees, Fashion IndustryThis year, Dutch Design Week took on the world’s problems, from the refugee crisis to ethical industries. The 2015 edition had a record number of visitors, estimated at over 270,000 over nine days. About 2,500 designers presented exhibitions, events, and talks in more than locations across Eindhoven. Oriented towards creativity and innovation, Dutch Design Week has become one of the most exciting events in the international design calendar, with graduates from the Design Academy Eindhoven presenting ideas side by side with established industry leaders. This year as well, two DDW ambassadors (design studio Makkink & Bey, and designer, philosopher and scientist Koert van Mensvoort) provided guidance, curation, and stimulation for the public and the design community alike. The event culminated with Dutch Design Awards. The Submarine Channel agency took the Communication and Future awards for its interactive online documentary Refugee Republic, about daily life in the Syrian refugee camp Domiz, in northern Iraq. Teresa van Dongen, who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2014 and was showing at DDW this year as well, was awarded the Young Designer Award for her small, but substantial body of work at the intersection of natural science and design. A prize was awarded to the most surprising or impressive presentation. Concept store You Are Here, curated by designers Niek Pulles and Harm Rensink, was recognized for entrepreneurship and generosity towards the fashion talent taking part. “The designers’ role during DDW is changing," said Rianne Makking, one of the DDW ambassadors. “The designer becomes a curator, puts issues on the agenda and also generates new work.” “What struck me was the unbelievable openness and the inclusive character of DDW," said Koert van Mensvoort, another DDW ambassador. “It is no longer about the world of design, but about the design of the world.” As has become expected, DDW is a place to find out about the designs and the designers that will make a mark on the future.

Dutch Design Week 2015 ran through October 25 at various locations in Eindhoven.     Published: October 27, 2015 Read full article here

$200M Van Gogh Will Stay at Yale, Obamas Opt for Abstract Art, and More
27/10/2015
$200M Van Gogh Will Stay at Yale, Obamas Opt for Abstract Art, and More— $200M Van Gogh Will Stay at Yale: A $200 million stolen painting by Vincent van Gogh will remain at Yale University, after a federal appeals court backed the university in a dispute over its ownership. During the Russian Revolution, “The Night Café” by the Dutch master was taken by the Soviets from Pierre Konowaloff’s family and sold to the school in 1961. The federal judge cited the doctrine that US courts do not honor foreign governments’ expropriation demands. [Guardian, WP]  — Obamas Opt for Abstract Art: The Obamas are swapping out some of the fusty portraiture and landscapes in the White House for more modern and contemporary works, such as pieces by Mark Rothko and Robert Rauschenberg. “There was discussion about the president and first lady liking more abstract art,” said William Allman, the curator of the White House art collection. “Our collection doesn’t really have any of that,” he said of the 500-piece collection. Melissa Chiu, the director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, which has let the Obamas borrow several paintings, said: “The recognition of African-American artists is a big piece of that. At many levels, you are seeing a diversification of the selection of artwork and artists that reveals the story of the United States.” [NYT] — Beirut’s Aishti Foundation Opens: A fixture of Beirut’s proposed cultural renaissance, Tony Salamé’s $100-plus million Aishti Foundation opened on Sunday. The David Adjaye-designed “museum-cum-shopping mall” combines 90 retail spaces, for brands like Gucci and Prada, with 4,000 square meters of art exhibition space. “We’re thinking of having yoga classes in between the sculptures,” Salamé added. “This is a place where art is not intimidating.” The opening show, titled “New Skin” and drawn from Salamé’s personal collection, was curated by the New Museum’s Massimiliano Gioni, who noted that the shopping sector is, in his opinion, “not challenging or problematic. Tony makes the money behind the [gallery] wall and he spends it in here. Fashion can really open up the audience to art.” [TAN] — Islamic State Detonates Palmyra Columns in Execution: On Sunday, the Islamic State executed three people by tying them to historic columns in Palmyra and blowing them up, according to Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Activist Mohammad al-Ayed added: “IS is doing this for the media attention, so that IS can say that it is the most villainous, and so it can get people’s attention.” [ArtDaily] — Eduardo Chillida’s US Renaissance: Spanish modernist sculptor Eduardo Chillida is getting renewed attention in the US, including a pop-up show opening this Friday on Madison Avenue. [WSJ] — Hammer Museum Plans Expansion: After acquiring a full city block of property from Occidental Petroleum in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles for $92.5 million, the Hammer Museum plans to use the additional 40,000 square feet to expand its galleries, including permanent display space for works on paper and the Hammer Contemporary Collection. [LAT] — Melik Ohanian wins 2015 Marcel Duchamp Prize. Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rame win Abraaj Group Art Prize. [Artforum, TAN, Artnews] — Oops, cleaners have thrown away more art — this time, a piece made up of party debris by Sara Goldschmied and Eleonora Chiari at the Museion in Bolzano, Italy. [Telegraph, Independent]— And in light, pleasant news, French artist Christian Boltanski is counting down the seconds to his own death.

3 Questions for Architect James Wines
27/10/2015
3 Questions for Architect James WinesJames Wines, the architect, artist, and founder of SITE Environmental Design, is something of a living legend. When the idea of form for form’s sake became popular in the architectural profession in the late 1980s — a trend that’s just now wearing off — Wines and his storied 45-year practice took the long view. A champion of sustainability, environmental conscientiousness, and architecture that responds first and foremost to its context and its program, Wines and his impressive output in architecture, product design, and sculpture are being revisited with urgency by a younger generation of architects who share — and hope to build upon — the architectural concerns he began exploring in the 1970s. And so it’s fitting that Wines is part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, an exhibition up through January 3, 2016 that focuses primarily on much younger and less-established architects — many of whom would consider him not only a forefather or predecessor, but also an icon. Wines is best known for his comical (perverse, even) 1970s shopping center designs for Best Products, a now-defunct catalog showroom company. Yet his show at Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago, which was timed to open alongside the Biennial as a complementary project to the main exhibition, brings to light a slightly lesser-known element of Wines’s work: his drawings. And while the exhibition of flat files closed on October 24, the projects and themes they depict synthesize some of the wide-ranging narrative arc of SITE’s output. ARTINFO sat down with Wines at his studio in New York to get the lowdown on his drawings, his interdisciplinary work in art, and his altogether unusual take on the world at large. The drawings at Rhona Hoffman Gallery span the breadth of your career in architecture, from the 1970s to the present. What are some of the concerns you’ve focused on in that timespan? My whole career has been a critique of architecture. It really is problematic; you can’t really do anything effectively without the so-called “capitalist system.” Was it Schwarzenegger who said, “Did you ever get a job from a poor person?” That’s true! In architecture, it’s completely predicated on — and has always been predicated on — the rich. Somebody has to feed down the money to get this thing done. And then what is done is often so obscene in terms of energy and humanity… it’s very problematic. It’s profoundly problematic in terms of the moral values that are expressed in architecture. But, you know, the capitalist paradigm is also highly questionable! What alternatives have you developed for working within this seemingly inescapable paradigm? A good sense of irony, from day one. I was a Constructivist sculptor — actually pretty successful — before this. But I thought, hasn’t this been done before? I was always interested in architecture anyway. Then I started looking around in architecture, and I realized that the situation is pretty sad in many ways: die-hard formalism, and it’s pretty narrowly framed in terms of what most practitioners do. They’re not brains, exactly. How would you characterize the role of drawings in your practice — as art objects? As technical documents? As both? As a bridge that allows your practice to exist between the two worlds? It is a bridge, there’s no question about it. Clearly, the fact that our drawings have been selling so well over the past year to major collections… somebody finally figured out that they’re probably more art than they are design. Design drawings, especially computer drawings — I mean, who wants them? They’re mechanical tools. I wonder, who’s left that knows how to draw? But I think a lot of people are interested in the fact that ideas do emerge from hand-drawing. I do a lecture on drawing, and I have this thing at the beginning about the human brain… there are like 500 million, billion connections in the human brain that make any computer on earth look like child’s play. This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity. Select Photo Gallery: James Wines: SITE Specific, Architectural Drawings, 1979 - 2012Published: October 27, 2015 Read full article here
