Other Space Odysseys
- This week we bring you a smattering of events and exhibitions opening and taking place this weekend along the West Coast. Have another to add to the mix? Tell us about it here.
Surveying a series of milestone Alessi collaborations from 1955 to the present, this exhibition focuses on Alessi’s projects with Ron Arad, the Campana Brothers, Achille Castiglioni, Michael Graves, Greg Lynn, Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Philippe Starck, Robert Venturi and others. On view will be 150 objects, drawings, historic factory photographs, and videos that document the achievements of the family-owned company’s projects.
- What is a home? There's the obvious answer of a place of residence or--at an even more elementary level--a structure that provides shelter.
- An exhibition currently on view at the National Academy Museum in New York, Seismic Shifts, explores paradigmatic shifts in modern culture.
