LINES TOWARDS ANOTHER CENTURY

12:00 am in Events by bloc

Date: 24 Jun – 6 Jul 2008
Website: www.mediaartbath.org.uk
Location: england

Outline:

Media Art Bath is delighted to announce that it has invited Australian artist, Tom Nicholson and New York based composer, Andrew Byrne to collaborate on a work for presentation at The Holburne Museum in June, commencing with a performance of the resulting work by The Elysian Quartet.

Lines Towards Another Century, takes as its starting point, a list of the national boundaries created during the 20th Century. Since 2003, Tom Nicholson has used this list as the basis of a number of projects including a series of banner marches (realised as participatory performances) and exhibitions that document and extend this material through video, drawing and photography. The list forms a mnemonic ordering system as the lines of the boundaries are traced onto contemporary cities, and translated into contemporary contexts.

The work will be presented at The Holburne Museum as an exhibition with the live performance of an instructional score for instrumental ensemble and voice. This will be performed by The Elysian Quartet within a specially devised installation of visual and sonic elements gathered from the various performances and actions that make up the work ´ ranging from footage of the banner marches to the recordings of individual voices.

Performance ´ The Elysian Quartet ´ Sunday 22 June, 16.30. Artist’s talk ´ 24 June, 18.00. Exhibition continues 24 June to 6 July 2008 (closed Mondays).

Stefan Sagmeister

12:00 am in Seminars by bloc

Date: 9 Jun 2008, 6pm
Website: http://www.designwales.org.uk/
Location: wales

Outline:

Astonishingly, Stefan Sagmeister has only learned twenty or so things in his life so far. But he did manage to publish these personal maxims all over the world, in spaces normally occupied by advertisements and promotions: as billboards, projections, light-boxes, magazine spreads, annual report covers, fashion brochures, and, recently, as giant inflatable monkeys. In this presentation Sagmeister throws his diary, a lot of design, and a little art together with a pinch of psychology and a dash of happiness into a blender and pushes the button. It tastes surprisingly yummy.

Stefan Sagmeister was born in 1962 in Austria. He received his MFA in graphic design from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and, as a Fulbright Scholar, a master’s degree from Pratt Institute in New York. He formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and has since designed branding, graphics and packaging for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, David Byrne, Lou Reed, Aerosmith and many others.
