New York in the fall: so MUCH to see and do. Here are just a few of the places and events where you will find me:
First, on Wednesday, September 30 is the IFDA: “Desgin Dialogue: Global Trends for Tomorrow, Today”. THIS I am looking forward to! The speakers are Hermine Mariaux and Patricia Bouley. For those of you not familiar with these two, take a look at the link for IFDA. They will, among other things, be presenting their finding from Maison et Objet, which, of course, I will find very interesting… I will report to you next week.
1. Met Home Showhouse: This is open through October 18, but unfortunately only on weekends. This year it showcases 14 designers and should provide lots of food for thought…
I went recently into New York to see the new Museum of Arts and Design at 2 Columbus Circle. What an experience! It is truly wonderful and a must see for anyone involved in the visual arts. The current exhibit: Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary is fascinating. The vinyl records, the plastic forks, the ancient Chinese water vessels, the fine china from German factories, the spools of thread: all these items, and many more, have found a second life.
3. Guggenheim Museum: Kandinsky, on view until January, 2010.
6. State University of New York at New Paltz: Yes, here is a surprise! Rave reviews of the museum and ALL the exhibits celebrating the Hudson River and it’s history. Take the train, the bus, or drive up here: this is one you will NOT want to miss.
