Wondering what architecture and design events are happening around New York City? Bustler put together a snappy list of architecture and design events that are worth checking out. Start this week off with a lecture by architect Rozana Montiel at Columbia GSAPP, or catch a book talk about the revival of the debatable Postmodernism style at NYSID. Opening later in the week is the multi-disciplinary exhibition “Derrick Adams: Sanctuary” at the Museum of Arts and Design, while MoMA's “Items: Is Fashion Modern?” will be on display for a few more days.
Hear a lecture from architect Rozana Montiel, the founder of ROZANA MONTIEL | ESTUDIO DE ARQUITECTURA and the 2017 recipient of the Moira Gemmill prize. Her interdisciplinary work has been published in renowned architectural digests, as well as exhibited in Mexico, Spain, France, United States, England and China. Her work has also appeared in the Venice, Sao Paulo, Rotterdam, Lima and Chile Biennials.
Join design historian and author Judith Gura for a presentation about her book “Postmodern Design Complete: Design, Furniture, Graphics, Architecture, Interiors” at the New York School of Interior Design. Gura will discuss the history, designers, and iconic designs of the Postmodern movement, and the reasons behind its current revival. The presentation will be followed by a conversation moderated by Metropolis creative director Paul Makovsky.
Opening at the Museum of Arts and Design, the can't-miss exhibition “Derrick Adams: Sanctuary” features 50 works by multi-disciplinary artist Derrick Adams. From mixed-media collages to sculptures, Adams' works “reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century”. The exhibition “reflects on the plight of working-class black people before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and their determination to pursue the same American Dream afforded to others”.
It's the last week for “Items: Is Fashion Modern?”! This MoMA exhibition explores the past, present, and future of 99 iconic garments, accessories, and other items that have made a significant social impact in the 20th and 21st centuries.
