UNSIGHTED

Unsighted exhibition in Milan curated by Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte


From April 15, 2018 until April 22, 2018
For Milan Design Week 2018, in the heart of 5vie, the unique historical central neighborhood of Milan, Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte proposes a survey of international contemporary designers featuring new collectible design works inside a remarkable Milanese palazzo. Eight international designers were asked to produce a work while unaware of the context. The brief was maybe an anti-brief, asking to make something that doesn’t have to be anything. Without standard parameters, the project aims to emancipate the designer from notions of style, spatial specifications, and project demands. The focus is on creating objects that are active and autonomous agents in their environment, not complementing a space, but impacting it in their own right. The exhibition is produced by 5VIE art+design.
