Nonspaces

  • Akbank Sanat

A group exhibition entitled “Nonspaces” that highlights exemplification of nature and modernization of space by new media is on view at Akbank Sanat, Istanbul and will run through March 4, 2017.

Curators: Ceren Arkman, Irmak Arkman

Artists: Can Büyükberber, Felix Luque, Field, Iñigo Bilbao, İdil İlkin, LAb[au], LIA, Onformative, OUCHHH, Paul Myoda, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Semiconductor, Sougwen Chung, Youki Hirakawa 

The artworks on display intend to transform the notion of space or generate hyper-real spaces for our acknowledgment. The compositions let the observers comprehend and live through space in a non-physical, non-social, non-traditional manner as a non-space. The representations formed by novel media tend to be more suitable in our ultra-modern way of life, emphasizing the novel conducts that we associate with our world.

Internet Age Media Weekend 17

  • Mercat de les Flors

After an expected revival of the term utopia, thanks to the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s book of the same name being celebrated this year with exhibitions, discussions and events around the globe, utopias emerge as a useful and provocative tool to invent better futures in the internet age.

What if we use utopias as a verb?

For IAM Weekend 17 we will go deeper into the meaning of utopias, with imagination and skepticism, understanding how they can evolve beyond contemporary dreams and help us navigate the uncertainty of our times.We will do it by sharing stories, thoughts and questions about how the futures of media, education and the arts can blend to radically improve how we live, learn, communicate, work and play.

The Instagram Show by Avant Arte at Unit London

  • Unit London

As online art sales boom, innovative London gallery UNIT joins forces with leading online art platform Avant.Arte to stage an exhibition of art popularised on Instagram 

As Hiscox reports, 48% of art buyers use Instagram, and by 2017, the majority of art purchases will be carried out online. As online art sales boom, it might be a perfect time for an Instagram art show. This is why an innovative London gallery Unit London will join forces with a leading online art platform Avant Arte to mount an exhibition of art publicized via Instagram. This will be a rare occasion for Avant Arte’s half million of followers to see the art they discovered online featured on walls and floors of the gallery space. Among participating artists are Avant Arte’s Jason SeifLionel Smit, and Brian Willmont and Unit London’s Ryan HewettIvan Alifan and Massimo Agostinelli.

The Avant Arte Platform

Launched in 2014 by two Dutch entrepreneurs, Curtis Penning and Christian Luiten, Avant Arte aims to make all art accessible to anyone in the world, connect people with art and the artists they love, but also empower artists and creatives to share their dreams with the world. The platform was listed in 2016 on Huffington Post as one of the most influential art Instagram accounts. Art lovers can swipe through art, discover what they love and make a direct contact with an artist, gallery or museum.

 

The Unit London

Founded in 2013 by two British artists and entrepreneurs, Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt, Unit London is a city’s leading independent, artist-led gallery situated in Soho. Frustrated by the exclusivity of the commercial art sector and with a desire to break down these barriers of elitism and to include people in the contemporary art world, they founded a gallery that is based on the idea of inclusivity. Over the course of three years, Unit London has gone from charity shop pop-up to thriving commercial gallery with and international roster of artists and a fast-growing following of both new and established collectors. With over 100,000 followers worldwide across all social media channels and 80,000 on Instagram specifically, their openness online is matched by the welcoming and inclusive atmosphere of their expansive venue.

St Petersburg Aurora Fashion Week 2016 SS

  • DLT Department Store St. Petersburg

Уже 16 ноября стартует нетрадиционный Фестиваль Моды — Aurora Fashion Week Fall Winter Spring Summer 2016

В течении в течение 4 дней, в топовых местах Петербурга пройдут презентации известных брендов, неформальные ужины и вечеринки AFWSS 2016. А центральное событие с выступлением специальных гостей состоится 19 ноября в атриуме ДЛТ

Мы смещаем главный акцент с показов. Уход от этой традиции кажется странным только на первый взгляд – конвейер fashion-шоу, проходящих на одной площадке, давно уже перестал быть эффективным инструментом для развития модных марок. Сам статус показа, как важного социального и культурного события, также уже в прошлом.

Обучать, вдохновлять, объединять – так звучит формула AFWSS 2016.

Специально для AFWSS оператор мобильной связи Tele2Russia ✌ вместе с молодым и востребованным в fashion индустрии каллиграфом Pokras Lampas ⭐ разработали лимитированную коллекцию футболок и чехлов для телефонов с уникальными принтами

 

19 ноября в ДЛТ состоится первый в России public talk с участием Вирджила Абло. На тему эстетики уличного стиля и урбанистики в моде будет говорить креативный директор марки Off-White, человек, занимающий 14 строчку в топе самых влиятельных людей в мире уличной моды по версии Complex.com. О том, как дизайнер смог осмыслить моду и стиль и реализовать свои идеи в имидже Канье Уэста (Вирджил также является стилистом музыканта) или, например, о том, как создать принт в виде полосок, который станет культом. Прямая трансляция на dlt.ru! Участие в public talk – бесплатное, но по предварительной регистрации.

Также вечером 19 ноября состоится Центральное событие AFWSS. Мы соберем несколько pop-up проектов, отражающих моду сквозь призму музыки, кино, гастрономии, напитков и визуального искусства. Партнером и местом проведения центрального события AFWSS станет ДЛТ – главный department store Санкт-Петербурга и эпицентр модной жизни города. Со своим диджей-сетом в Центральном событии примет участие и спикер public talk Вирджил Абло. Также концерт дадут блюз-рокеры The Jack Wood - единственная российская группа, выступившая на культовом музыкальном фестивале Glastonbury в Великобритании.


Расписание

AFWSS 2016 начнётся 16 ноября, в среду, и завершится Центральным событием 19 ноября в ДЛТ. В рамках «Авроры» пройдут ужины, вечеринки и презентации, объединяющие как молодых специалистов, так и лидеров мнений:

Trimarchi Argentina 2016 @trimarchidg

  • Estadio Polideportivo Islas Malvinas

I was really lucky to speak at Trimarchi festival in Argentina last year and to meet a lot of creative people including 8K audience on stadium. This year guys have their 16th largest event of South America in Mar del Plata, 1-hour flight from Buenos Aires.

We’ve been digging into the knowledge cavern for 16 years. We have an ever restless and radiant torch guiding us through the tunnels of the visual field. That group of friends that got together to learn more about graphic design in the late 90’s is now one of the biggest design conferences in the world, gathering thousands of people in a stadium to interact and grow together.
We had a push from Alberto Potenza, followed by the support of Rubén Fontana, and the chain of allies started becoming huge: Stefan Sagmeitser, Bob Gill, David Carson, Friends with You, Izzy Sanabria, Doma, Emory Douglas, Paula Scher, Massimo Vignelli, Carl Sprague, Eike Koening, Ale Paul, Seymour Chwast and Ronald Shakespear, just to name a few.
Audiovisual parties, lectures, workshops, cultural exchange places, design fairs, publishing houses, record labels, skate, expos, concerts and several mutations appear each year.
A meeting point for the restless minority.
This October, like every year, we penetrate the cave where paths are projected.

  • Brewer Street Car Park

Designed by David Collins Studio, the Designer Showrooms will be home to over 150 designers, showcasing a rich and diverse selection of ready-to-wear, footwear, bags and accessories. 

Of the four fashion capitals, London is the only city that hosts the Designer Showrooms in the same space as its official show space, putting a spotlight on this broader group of designers. It is the Designer Showrooms that have launched many global brands, including a number of on-schedule designers.

The international element of the showrooms illustrates that the doors to London are truly open. With exhibiting designers that hail from Taiwan, Egypt, London and everywhere in between, the pull of London on a global scale is undeniable. The UK continues to be an attractive and fertile home for an array of designer businesses of any size, and from any place, and the designers in the exhibition this season really highlight that.

Other notable Brewer Street features include the TONI&GUY and Maybelline New York pop-ups who will be on hand to remedy any hair or makeup concerns. Sunglass Hut will host a space where guests can discover the latest eyewear must-haves, displayed on a revolving ‘runway’ of sunglasses and also offer guests the chance to personalise their official London Fashion Week tote bag at a customization station. Etihad Airways will host an exhibition of travel and fashion inspired imagery on the first floor while Swatch will showcase their POP collection within the Designer Showrooms.
 
The Store Kitchen – the lifestyle destination based on Lexington Street – will once again host a pop-up serving a selection of fine, ethically sourced food and drinks. Additionally, Lavazza Coffee, Evian Water, Carabao energy drink and Propercorn are on offer throughout the venue.

Flow Festival has become synonymous with bringing music from old school legends to topical newcomers. Beyond the music, Flow, offers a warm embrace of the arts and an exceptional array of world spanning cuisine. Only a short walk away from the centre of Helsinki, the festival strikes an alluring setting for a few days of blissed-out festival escapism. There’s easily enough to keep attendees occupied, if ever spending a summer weekend in culture hub Helsinki wasn’t enough.

Flow Festival is held in a disused power station built at the turn of the century. Only a short walk away from the centre of Helsinki, a monumental architectural site is brought to life with light design and decorations beyond compare.
