New-York : l’Art and Design Museum

L’Art and Design Museum (le MAD) a rouvert ses portes en septembre 2008, dans un nouvel immeuble au coin de Central Park. Les collections couvrent les 19ème et 20ème siècle, ce sont les pièces récentes les plus intéressantes. Il y avait deux expositions temporaires : Une sur les bijoux contemporains, finalement peu enthousiasmante, et une autre, « Second Lives », sur des objets réalisés à partir d’autres objets recyclés (pneus, couverts, livres…). Le résultat était surprenant et vraiment original (quelques photos ici).

« Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary » exhibition features work by 50 international established and emerging artists from all five continents who create objects and installations comprised of ordinary and everyday manufactured articles, most originally made for another functional purpose.

The exhibition includes works by well known designers, Ingo Maurer, Tejo Remy, and the Campana Brothers as well as internationally acclaimed artists, such as Tara Donovan, Xu Bing, El Anatsui, and Do Ho Suh.

The exhibition surveys the rich artistic landscape of much contemporary art, in which hierarchies among art, craft, and design are disregarded. In addition, the exhibition examines the ways in which artists transform our world, respond to contemporary cultural paradigms, and comment on global consumerism.
