This week's picks include book discussions for “The Moderns: Midcentury American Graphic Design” and “Richard Filipowski: Art and Design Beyond the Bauhaus”, the Facades+ NYC conference, and the new interactive exhibition “The Senses: Design Beyond Vision” at Cooper Hewitt. Read on for our latest weekly event recommendations.
Steve Heller and Greg D’Onofiro will discuss their latest book, “The Moderns”, with special guest moderator Anne Quito, design writer for Quartz. “The Moderns: Midcentury American Graphic Design” is the first comprehensive survey to examine the impact and widespread practice of the post-Bauhaus-influenced design style and method through the work of some of its most avid adherents and rebels.
Facades+ unites top professionals from the worlds of design, fabrication, and construction to consider how high performance envelopes contribute to and are shaped by NYC's unique architectural landscape. The one-day conference includes keynotes Francine Houben and Ian Ritchie, and workshops led by industry-leading designers, engineers, and specialists.
Richard Filipowski, a major figure bridging the Bauhaus and American midcentury modernism, finally gets his due! Join Hattula Moholy-Nagy, Marisa Bartolucci, Larry Weinberg, Richard Dattner, and Glenn Gissler in a lively discussion about Filipowski's life as an artist, designer, and teacher. A reception will follow the conversation. Marisa Bartolucci will sign her new book, Richard Filipowski: Art & Design Beyond the Bauhaus
This new exhibition invites visitors to encounter design with all their senses through several interactive installations, created in collaboration with contemporary designers, from a furry wall with digital sensors that play music to a scent commission by Christopher Brosius inspired by winter.
