An installation view of Master Slave System (afterglow), an exhibition of the work of German artist Klaus Merkel that is on view through December 7 at Joe Sheftel Gallery.

The New Yorker‘s Passport to the Arts returns on Saturday, November 8. The venerable magazine and its promotions department have organized a gallery crawl, evening cocktail party, and silent auction to benefit Creative Time. A $55 ticket gets you a “limited-edition passport” that each of the 25 SoHo and Lower East Side galleries and venues on the self-guided tour will stamp with a replica of a featured work of art. And with a list of participating galleries that includes Joe Sheftel, Laurel Gitlen, and Invisible-Exports, this year’s Passport to the Arts promises to be quite a trip.

Quote of Note | Neville Brody

Unbeige - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 04:21

neville brody“To me, the most inspiring kind of design comes from people who are not professional designers. Things like seven-inch reggae album art from the ’70s and ’80s. These people had cheap printing and bad technology, but still made impactful work. There’s something inspiring in that innocence—raw, direct, and unafraid to make mistakes.”

Quote of Note | Marc Newson on Carlo Mollino

Unbeige - Sat, 11/01/2014 - 03:52

mollino bisiluro 1955

“I discovered the work of Carlo Mollino at the beginning of my career, about twenty-five years ago. The piece that really got me excited was the ‘Bisiluro’ (pictured), which was essentially a racing car that looked like a four-wheeled motorcycle, like two motorcycles bolted together. It was a fantastically brilliant thing: two pontoons joined by a metallic membrane. He raced them. They were his obsession, though he designed them not merely to look cool, but also to be functional and aerodynamic. What subsequently attracted me to his work, more than the furniture, was his general multitasking ability. Aviation, architecture, automotives, photography, furniture—he created all of those things, and he practiced across several disciplines at a time when not many other people were doing that. He eluded any job description.”

Editions/Artists’ Books Fair Returns

eab fair 2014

As you bid Archtober adieu with a Halloween-themed candy binge weekend, ready your sturdiest tote bag and a swath of shelf space for New York’s Editions/Artists Books Fair. The extravaganza of contemporary art publishers and dealers gets underway Thursday evening with a festive preview (tickets here) and then runs through Sunday, November 9, at the newly-renovated Art Beam building in Chelsea. Back after a brief hiatus (see also: “Sandy, Hurricane”), this marks the sixteenth installment of the fair, which has lined up 44 exhibitors, from Michael Steinberg Fine Art and the paper maestros at Dieu Donné to Bartleby & Co. and Purgatory Pie Press (“a sanctuary for artists, designers and typographers who are seduced by the kiss of type and the touch of metal”), presenting works by hundreds of emerging and established artists. Speaking of the latter category, Enoc Perez has whipped up a limited-edition benefit print for the fair—Fontainebleau, Miami—that looks ahead to the next big event on the global art calendar: Art Basel Miami Beach.

Restoration of Alvar Aalto’s Viipuri Library Wins World Monuments Fund Modernism Prize

Unbeige - Thu, 10/30/2014 - 15:30

RUS-Viipuri-glass-facadeThe 21-year-long project to restore Alvar Aalto‘s Viipuri Library in Vyborg, Russia (né Viipuri, Finland, before Stalin and co. took a fancy to it) has clinched the 2014 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize, awarded biennially to an innovative architectural or design solution that has preserved or enhanced a modern landmark. The award will be made to the Finnish Committee for the Restoration of Viipuri Library with Vyborg’s Central City Alvar Aalto Library. Previous winners of the prize—$10,000 and a limited-edition Barcelona chair created by Knoll especially for the occasion—include an architectural consortium that restored typhoon-ravaged Hizuchi Elementary School on Japan’s Shikoku Island and the team effort of Bierman Henket Architecten and Wessel de Jonge Architects to restore the Zonnestraal Sanatorium in the Dutch town of Hilversum.

The Aalto-designed library was completed in 1935. “An icon of twentieth-century architecture—with its distinctive sky-lighted roof, undulating wood-slatted lecture hall ceiling, and glass façade-enclosed staircase—the library at Viipuri is one of Aalto’s most important buildings from the years in which he was adventurously exploring a new modernist vocabulary; indeed, photographs of the building soon made him known around the world,” said jury chairman and MoMA veteran Barry Bergdoll, professor of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, in a statement issued today by the WMF. “The restoration organized and executed an impressive international campaign that has ensured the survival and revival of Aalto’s masterpiece by restoring it to its original function as a vibrant municipal library.” The prize will be presented at New York’s Museum of Modern Art on December 1 followed by a free public lecture.
