2 Room with its own rules
Until the 15th of July, Chamber Gallery will present the work of 20 women, among which designers Sabine Marcelis, Johanna Grawunder, Hilda Hellstörm, Marlène Huissoud and Lindsey Adelman. “This is an example of what, clearly, has not happened yet”, said Matylda Krzykowski, curator of the exhibition. “A parallel and post-patriarchal reality where an exhibition made entirely by women is absolutely normal, and not a demonstrative act, planned appositely”.
3 Solid Doubts: Robert Stadler at The Noguchi Museum
Until the 3rd of September, in Long Island, the Noguchi Museum will host four big installations (one of which in the Japanese garden) from Austrian designer Robert Stadler. These have been created in order to establish a direct dialogue with the work of Japanese-American designer and artist Isamu Noguchi. The installations create a harmonious path where furniture, sculptures, different materials, light, space, functionality and pure aesthetics are combined together.
