Decode: Digital Design Sensations is an upcoming exhibition at Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The exhibition will show the latest developments in digital and interactive design, from small screen based graphics to large-scale installations. The exhibition will explore three themes: Code as a Raw Material, Interactivity and The Network. You will be able to see work by Daniel Brown, Golan Levin, Daniel Rozin, Simon Heijdens, Trioka, Robert Hodgin, … I guess it’s quite clear that I’ll have to go to London between 8 December 2009 and 11 April 2010. But till then I’ll keep myself busy with the opensource digital identity of the exhibition created by Karsten Schmidt. You can download it here and start playing with it. If you submit your version of the identity, it’s possible that it will appear on the digital screens of the London Underground.
STAGES is exhibition initiated by Lance Armstrong and Nike to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. 20 renowned artists produced work inspired by Lance and his fight against cancer. Although I’m very sceptical about the whole cycling sport (or any professional sport for that matter), the cause and the artwork deserve some publicity. The exhibition opens this Friday July 17th at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, France.
Here are a few of the artworks:
Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris is a study depicting the stylistic diversity found in Parisian graffiti tags. Evan Roth photographed over 2400 graffiti tags in Paris and archived, tagged and sorted them by letter. Then he filtered out the 10 most used letters (A,E,I,K,N,O,R,S,T and U) and for each of them he isolated eighteen tags to represent the diversity and range of that specific character. You can browse the whole collection on the website of the Fondation Cartier.
“Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris” is part of the “Born In The Streets – Graffiti” exhibition at Fondation Cartier in Paris France. You can go and see it till November 29th, 2009.
The next stop of the Europeam Nike IAM1 Journey is London. They asked INSA, the infamous London-based artist, to do an installation and exhibition with his trademark pieces. It’s quite nice to see how he can scale them and how they fit perfectly together. Just watch the video to see what I mean.
Next Friday is the opening of “Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places” at 1948 in London.
adidas is organising a small exhibition at their N0 74 Berlin store, starting this Wednesday July 1st. They will be showing women’s footwear from the 1968 Azteka Gold till the 2006 adicolor Sneaker. The exhibition will be runing till July 15th, so if you’re around and you want to see some vintage adidas footwear …
During the Berlin Fashion Week, the No 74 store will also have a small bar in their garden – open from 4 till 8 PM.
Tomorrow is the opening of Banksy‘s exhibition at the Bristol Museum. 100 works will be shown and this quote of the master himself sums it up perfectly: “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off”.
This is mandatory for everyone close to Bristol till August 31st!
THE ENTRY IS FREE
