Stefan Sagmeister on Why Beauty Matters

Unbeige - Sat, 05/10/2014 - 03:51
When did beauty become a dirty—or at least obsolete—word for artists and designers? Stefan Sagmeister weighed on the issue in his stimulating—ok, beautiful—presentation at last week's DLD (Digital-Life-Design) conference in New York City. Watch the video below for an aesthetic journey that goes from the industrial shed that is Memphis's Cook Covention Center ("Elvis had truly left the building.") to a consideration of the impact of Sagmeister's fellow Austrian Adolf Loos to faux Mondrians (can you tell the real from the fake?) to a mesmerizing coda complete with jiggly gelatin typography.

Unbeige - Thu, 05/08/2014 - 13:05
The fifth annual School of Visual Arts MFA Design Criticism (a.k.a D-Crit) conference, "Lingua Franca," drew an impressive, international crowd to the SVA Theatre, where members of the Class of 2014 presented their thesis research alongside guest speakers such as writer and curator (at Hong Kong’s new M+ museum) Aric Chen, material anthropologist Emily Stokes-Rees, and creator of the MIT Press Mediawork project Peter Lunenfeld. Those that missed—or want to relive—last Friday's proceedings are in luck: videos of the sessions are now available online. We suggest beginning with novelist and critic Nicholson Baker's keynote address, "Wrapping Sentences Around Things":

In Which André Leon Talley Fondles Tom Ford’s Waistcoat

Unbeige - Wed, 05/07/2014 - 12:57 and the rest of the Condé Nast crew elected not to repeat last year's rather awkward livestreaming of the arrivals at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala, but they did keep a camera trained on the indefatigable André Leon Talley on Monday evening as he held court at the top of the carpeted granite stairs shouting terse greetings ("Instagram! Patricia!") and complimenting ensembles. The result is a series of very, very short videos such as this one, in which Talley and Tom Ford discuss the work of designer Charles James, the subject of this year's spring Costume Institute exhibition; the textile of Ford's own sumptous white waistcoat (spoiler alert: silk!); and the sartorial preferences of Ford's toddler son.

Look to the official UnBeige Twitter feed, for up-to-the-minute newsbites, event snippets, links of interest, design trivia, and free candy (OK, we're still working on the physics of that last one).
