An exhibition about the relation between crisis and creativity.
[DESIGN]CRISIS is the title of the exhibition conceived and executed by JVLT/JoeVelluto + yet|matilde, that has taken place in Milan during Milan Design Week, from 22nd to 27th of April 2009, at P4 Temporary Gallery, a former factory along the Navigli canals.
Which are the sensations, ideas, “formulas” that can help us overcoming this particular historical moment of crisis, not only economic, but also cultural, sociological, environmental...?
How can professionals creativity (and “design”, meant as analysis, project, solutions for surviving) handle and solve “the crisis”?
Designers and architects, critics and journalists, businessmen and economists, but also artists, doctors, musicians, chefs or master craftsmen, present their own vision and analysis of the actual historical time, through a free expression ranging from product to theory, from art to music, and so on...
[DESIGN]CRISIS aim is to prospect the critical attitude of professionals coming from different fields, but in some ways close to the design and creativity world for passion or work, about a very actual and hard subject.
[DESIGN]CRISIS was exhibited in a perfect "crisis style". If this is, in part, an hard time, on the other hand, crisis can be interpreted as a regenerating moment. That's why we've gone back to the taste and passion of old good "hand made", in making the exhibition supports and captions.
Cardboard, used paper, photocopies, handwritten informations are the elements characterizing the exhibit space.
And if there's any typing error, you know it's not Word fault!
