JOANA VASCONCELOS WILL LAUNCH AN EXHIBITION IN BOSTON’S NEW MUSEUM
Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was invited to create a monumental installation for the opening of the new Boston Contemporary Art Museum in the United States on February 22nd, 2020. The piece will be created specifically for the MassArt Art Museum (MAAM) space, in what will be Vasconcelos’ first solo exhibition in the United States. Part of the Valkyrie series, the piece was created to honour Elizabeth ‘Mumbet’ Freeman, an enslaved woman whose legal battle for freedom in 1781 helped outlaw slavery in the US state of Massachusetts. Titled ‘Valkyrie Mumbet’ (2020), the oversized piece, with a centre from which tentacle arms come out, will be suspended.
SMART WOOD BY STARCK FOR KARTELL: WHEN WOOD MEETS TECHNOLOGY
Revealed during Salone del Mobile 2019 in Milan, the Smart Wood Collection by Philippe Starck for Kartell was born from an ecological engagement and the continuous search for innovation. Using patented technology, the wood is worked with a mould designed to bring the curvature of the panel to the very edges, creating a seat with sinuous roundness, combining the beauty of the wood and its ability to connect to nature with extraordinarily ergonomic lines. For the first time ever, Kartell has managed to bring three-dimensionality to a product that, until now, had been two-dimensional. The collection features pieces of furniture that combine timeless elegance with contemporary shapes.
