Guggenheim Kicks Off Open Competition for Design of Future Helsinki Museum

Unbeige - Wed, 06/04/2014 - 12:14
Pull up an Alvar Aalto-designed Stool 60, cue up your Sibelius playlist, and put on your Marimekko-patterned thinking cap, design fans, because Guggenheim Helsinki is coming. Today marks the launch of the Guggenheim Foundation's open, international architectural competition—a first for an institution that has had a good run simply by commissioning architects named Frank when the need for a new building arises—for the design of the proposed art and design museum, which is to be located on city-owned land in the southwestern part of Helsinki's South Harbor (you know, betwixt Eteläranta and Laivasillankatu). Guggenheim Helsinki is to be a museum that "would organize and present internationally significant exhibitions of artworks from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries while also specializing in Nordic art and architecture. The museum would feature programs organized by the Guggenheim Foundation that might not otherwise be seen in Finland and would also generate exhibitions to be presented at other Guggenheim museums and at institutions around the world," according to the proposal presented by the foundation last fall. A permanent collection would be developed over time. The construction budget is estimated at €130 million (approximately $177 million at current exchange). continued...

Elle Décor Welcomes Pitches on Travel and Up-and-Coming Designers

Unbeige - Tue, 06/03/2014 - 21:57
Elle Décor, the magazine where style lives, takes the creativity of designers and artists from around the world and brings it into its readers homes. Articles focus on under-the-radar designers, artists just creating a name for themselves as well as new and interesting places to travel. While the magazine limits the areas to which freelance writers can pitch, the "Talent" section is always open to writers who have their ear to the ground on an up-and-coming designer, artist or stylist. Another area to focus on is the magazine's travel section. Features director Vicki Lowry invites more writers to pitch travel topics: We are always looking for intriguing places to go and talented writers to cover it. They should really know a place: the right streets, the great shops, the best restaurants and hotels, the museums. They should be very cognizant of that particular area and know what they're talking about. For more about Elle Décor and what editors want from a writer, read: How to Pitch: Elle Décor. The full version of this article is exclusively available to Mediabistro AvantGuild subscribers. If you’re not a member yet, register now for as little as $55 a year for access to hundreds of articles like this one, discounts on Mediabistro seminars and workshops, and all sorts of other bonuses.

Paola Antonelli's twenty-year career at New York's Museum of Modern Art has been a journey through many facets of design, "from cute chairs and fast cars to video games and now also the idea of violence," she told the audience at the recent DLD (Digital-Life-Design) in New York. Watch her talk below to gain insight into the darker side of design as explored—and hacked, penetrated, manipulated, penetrated, and exploded—through Design and Violence, an online curatorial experiment that explores the manifestations of violence in contemporary society.

MFA Boston to Debut ‘Kunstkammer Gallery’

Unbeige - Mon, 06/02/2014 - 12:26
Rare is the human who can resist a cabinet of curiosities—those bewitching, eclectic assortments of man-made and natural wonders that flout traditional taxonomies. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston is inaugurating one of its own in the Kunstkammer Gallery, which opens Wednesday. Among the objects that will be on view in the intimate space are exotic natural materials such as amber, ivory, and coconut shells; paintings on copper and hardstone; and virtuoso metalwork, such as clocks and automata. Follow up a visit to that whimsical space with a trip to the MFA’s newly renovated gallery dedicated to Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings and sculpture, which will also be unveiled on Wednesday.

Quote of Note | Annie Leibovitz

Unbeige - Sat, 05/31/2014 - 05:16
"My background as a photographer is as an observer. I'm a terrible director. The performers I have the most rapport with are comedians, who make up a very special group. They're sort of like manic depressives. I sympathize with them. They are usually also very intelligent. For me, the classic photograph of a comedian is Charlie Chaplin just leaning. That is such an extraordinarily funny picture. It's as perfect a photograph as you could ever have of a comedian. Chaplin came from silent films. The challenge for a photographer is to create a visually funny picture without it being stupid. It's difficult to take a funny picture." -Annie Leibovitz, whose images—from the black-and-white photograph of Richard Nixon’s helicopter lifting off from the White House lawn after he resigned as president in 1974 to the formal color portrait of Queen Elizabeth II taken in a drawing room of Buckingham Palace in 2007—are collected in a new SUMO-sized, limited-edition book from Taschen
