Measuring This much, That much, How much?

Exhibition, 21_21 Design Sight, Tokyo, Japan, until 31 May.

The world is more fun when you know how to play with units. And when you are familiar with units, design becomes much more interesting. By showing aspects of the world through the filter of units, this exhibition will hopefully change the way people view everyday things that they normally do not give a second thought to, leading to new discoveries and sparks of creativity.

Architectonisation: Monika Sosnowska

Exhibition, Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto, Portugal, until 31 May.

Monika Sosnowska mostly doesn’t do ‘small’. Instead, her tendency is towards big, disorienting para-architecture: ... mazes, spatially warped rooms, and stairways leading nowhere. Tatlin’s tower is an implicit reference; the intellectual backdrop of Sosnowska’s work is the collapse of modernist idealism that was intertwined with the fate of Eastern Europe over the last century. In her hands, once-upright forms melt and buckle, and if the ostensible influence is her experience of seeing Warsaw’s modernist architecture torn down around the turn of the century, the entropic associations spread far beyond the local. Here, seven gallery spaces contain objects and installations that range from corridor and pavilion- like works to discrete and more sculptural pieces.

33rd edition of Art Brussels

Art Fair, Brussels, Belgium, 24-27 April.

In recent years Brussels has been experiencing its own cultural renaissance, most notably in contemporary visual arts. The city itself continues to attract the attention of new artists, galleries and curators internationally. It is this, along with the array of respected cultural institutions that is reaffirming Brussels’ status as one of Europe’s most interesting and promising contemporary art cities. Brussels is steadily gaining the same critical acclaim as other established cultural metropolises. The strong collector base in Belgium (Belgian and international) further reinforces the position of Art Brussels (º1968) as one of the major cultural events in Western Europe.
