Rather than using time as the organizing principle of the exhibition, the dream team of curators focused on the location: Rome. “I think being a Roman fashion house is what makes Valentino so special, unique,” Piccioli said on a call. “Roma has a big influence on my work. The Rome evoked in the exhibition is not the Rome of postcards and stereotypes, but the real city inhabited by real people, and in particular the Rome of the Valentino house. The creative director made it clear that he didn’t want to fall “into the trap of an illustrative, kitsch vision of Rome,” says Gioni. “I also think that what Piccioli brings to fashion, and to Valentino in particular, is an idea of ​​Rome as a cosmopolitan city, as a truly lived city, as a place where coexistence has existed for centuries…a city much more polyphonic, complex and beautiful in its diversity, than the account of the emperors led us to believe.

Lord Byron once described Rome as the “city of the soul,” and that’s perhaps the most succinct way to talk about the Rome that “Forever Valentino” brings to Qatar. This vision of the city is very similar to Piccioli’s own approach to the house of Valentino; her goal is to capture the spirit of her heritage in emotional and inclusive designs.

Thus, visitors begin their tour of “Forever Valentino” the same way house employees begin their days, by entering (in this case a replica of) the courtyard of Palazzo Mignanelli’s headquarters, where Igor Mitoraj is outsized. . the sculpture “Sorgente del Centurione” dominates the space. “The really interesting thing with the sculpture is that it kind of reproduces this idea of ​​fragments from the past being transformed into a modern work,” says Fury. “It’s kind of an overview of the dresses designed by both Garavani and Piccioli, so it initiates this idea of ​​conversations between contemporary works and the past, enlivens them and encourages visitors to make these connections between the history and the present. It is important to note that the exhibition, including this section, presents both haute couture and ready-to-wear designs.

Afterwards, visitors can enter the completely white rooms of the workshop. “The color of [a] sewing [atelier] is white, even the ground is white, because when the pins fall, you have to see them,” explains Piccioli. “It’s just a very simple and functional reason, not just symbolic. But the idea of ​​couture, as the artistic director suggests, is also that of carte blanche; bespoke garments that begin life as blank canvases. In this piece are dresses in different states of becoming, and they can be appreciated for their architecture and objectivity, but, as Gioni puts it, Piccioli also wanted to capture in these pieces a “sense of real intimacy and [the] incredibly personal relationship between the customer and the house, and the clothes themselves.” Piccioli’s belief in openness also showed for spring 2023. “We did the Spanish Steps parade in July,” he explains. “The Spanish Steps are a great monument for everyone, [but]for us it’s the place where we go to have a coffee, so it’s a bit intimate.

Graphene and a 21st century Archibald Leitch to rebuild and expand St James’ Park? https://mongegrafico.com/graphene-and-a-21st-century-archibald-leitch-to-rebuild-and-expand-st-james-park/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 12:57:41 +0000 https://mongegrafico.com/graphene-and-a-21st-century-archibald-leitch-to-rebuild-and-expand-st-james-park/ I recently visited the Design Museum in Kensington High Street to see an exhibition called Designing the Beautiful Game.

I recently visited the Design Museum in Kensington High Street to see an exhibition called Designing the Beautiful Game. The whole family plus my son’s best friend. It was a superb exhibition, everyone agreed.

There was a section devoted to the architecture of the stadium. A fascinating look at stadiums around the world throughout history.

Living in London for a while now means I’ve visited a fair number of Newcastle supporting grounds or visited lower league games just to get my football fix.

Archibald Leitch was the architect behind many of the classic structures we associate with 20th century football stadiums with that very recognizable style of columns and steel A-frame beam structures supporting pitched roofs. The Taylor Report meant that many of Leitch’s stadium designs had to be rebuilt, so many disappeared to be redeveloped.

There has been a lot of talk about expanding St James’s Park or moving to a new purpose-built arena. Several of the big clubs in London have brand new grounds as the old stadiums were not up to the standards of the 21st century.

West Ham’s Boleyn Ground which I have visited many times over the years, always enjoying the intensity of the atmosphere generated by the fans in the old stadium and the closeness of the supporters to the pitch. But not the queue for the tube afterwards.

My last away game in London was at the Olympic Stadium to see Newcastle play and my son had a water bottle thrown at him by a crazed local fan (character creation for the boy!). I work with a few West Ham supporters and they hate their new home. I couldn’t agree with them more, it’s an awful place. Certainly not a football stadium.

‘St James’ Park as visualized by Archibald Leitch’

I also work with someone who is from Blackburn (my boss) and he is a West Ham season ticket holder. Justifies him by saying he can see all the stars from the top six teams. One wonders how many more of their supporters are like him.

Highbury Stadium which I have had the pleasure of visiting several times over the years and have always loved that it is set comfortably amongst the Victorian terraces, with its own dedicated underground station which was once called Gillespie Road, but Herbert Chapman convinced the powers that be to change it. at Arsenal. I even saw Shearer win there and so on. (you don’t often see a lot of wins in the capital), I liked Highbury with the old clock incorporated into the Clock Stand. This is where I was arrested once for drunkenness and disorder five minutes before kick-off. Much to the amusement of my comrades at Gosforth, even though I wasn’t drunk or disorderly, but just sat at the end of the row, so it was an easy selection for the police.

Highbury now houses accommodation but the 1930s Art Deco facade has been retained. Arsenal’s new home, the Emirates Stadium, which I’ve visited several times as well and is adjacent to where Highbury used to be, so it retains some of the local feel. The Highbury replacement is a quality piece of architectural design. The atmosphere does not compare to the old Art Deco Highbury in my opinion. The stadium is lifeless and could be anywhere. Certainly not the inspiring structure envisioned by the architects.

Just before Covid I managed to get Spurs tickets to the new Tottenham stadium. Extremely surprised to see a Joelinton goal and questionable VAR in our favour. The stadium is another fine feat of architectural engineering. Same usual trip to Seven Sisters and the long walk to the ground. I’ve done this route several times to get to the old White Hart Lane.

Spurs had their stadium rebuilt whilst playing at Wembley (my son and I visited Wembley to see Spurs defeat us by a single Son goal) White Hart Lane with their shelf was much more intimidating than Tottenham’s stadium . The architects had hoped to create a “blank wall” at one end, but you can’t conceive passion in a building.

Which brings me back to St James’ Park.

What lessons can we learn from the two big clubs in north London?

With 2028 on the horizon, do we need a new stadium?

Can we expand St James’ Park to increase capacity?

I read an article in The Economist the other day that explained how scientists and engineers had been experimenting with new materials, mostly by using graphene, a relatively recently discovered material, and incorporating it into concrete, creating thus opportunities to advance architectural development.

An Archibald Leitch for the 21st century must step forward so that we can rebuild and expand St James’ Park.

By Express press service

KENDRAPARA: The late Queen Elizabeth-II, during her 70 year reign, never visited Odisha but met and praised several non-resident Odias in London. One of them, Dr Bhagabat Charan Das was honored to receive the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) from the Queen in 1996.

Hailing from Begalapur village in Jagatsinghpur district, Dr Das was the first Odia to receive the coveted award, said famous writer and painter Prafulla Mohanti, brother-in-law of Das. Dr Das left for England in 1959 for higher education and worked in different hospitals for the National Health Service and joined Hope Hospital in Manchester as a consultant in aged care.

After his retirement, he devoted himself to building the Social Center for Asian Elderly People, a first institution of its kind in Europe. His wife, Adarmoni, a poet and author of several books in Odia helped her husband establish the center.

While Dr Das died in 2010, his wife breathed her last in England last year. Mohanty from Nanpur village of Jajpur district also met and interacted with the queen. “I had the privilege of meeting the Queen three times in London. I presented my book ‘My Village and My Life’ to her about 30 years ago.

In 1982, a painting exhibition was organized in London by Indian artists and NRIs for the visit of the then President of India, Giani Zail Singh. Some of my paintings were exhibited at the exhibition. Queen Elizabeth-II visited the exhibition and praised my paintings. I gave her three of my paintings,” Mohanti said by phone from London.

Local Taneytown blacksmith Jacob Selmer and his wife Red, a lamp maker or glass bead maker, are two of the incredible artists featured at the Taneytown Heritage and Museum Association, which is hosting an exhibition of local arts and authors – past and present – ​​titled “Creative Talent of Our Community” through Nov. 20. The museum is located at 340 E. Baltimore St. and the exhibit is open Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“We try to reach different groups of people in the community,” said Nancy Ensor, exhibit coordinator. “Each year we have a room that we use for a changing exhibition. It was time to recognize Taneytown’s creative talent. There are 45 artists in this exhibit from a wide range of media including oil painting, blacksmithing, bead making, watercolor and sculpture. The authors are also introduced.

“Our criteria for designing an exhibit is based on what the community is willing to lend us. Then you have to make it consistent. We try to promote the history of Taneytown,” Ensor said.

Jacob Selmer started working with metal at the age of 16. “I wanted to make armor. It was the kind of stuff we learned in school that included medieval times. Selmer said.

“That’s how I started working with metal. I made some armor. The first costume was chain mail. Chain mail is made from iron wires woven together to form armor. The costume has to be tailored to fit,” Selmer said. He used steel electric fence wire. He researched online and learned how to make jigs and his own tooling to bend wire. A template guides the tools to make them more precise.

Selmer wore his armor to school and to Renaissance and Celtic festivals. Many people wanted him to make costumes for them, he said, but it took too many hours. The first costume took him all summer to make.

Selmer wanted to make plate armor, but more specialized tools were needed. This brought him to the forge so he could make his own tools. He set up a small forge in his parents’ garden. His parents were very supportive. Selmer lived in Fairfax County, Virginia, and when he was just 17, he demonstrated at Colvin Run Mill. When there was no audience there, he taught himself and was constantly learning and practicing.

Much of Selmer’s early learning came from the internet and books. He made many of his own tools. He has plate armor that he crafted. “Since I need less armor than tools, I make more tools than armor now,” he said.

Selmer attended Virginia Tech and studied mechanical engineering with a minor in history. In 2006 he got a job with General Dynamics Robotic Systems in Westminster and moved to Keymar with his wife. He is now responsible for product engineering at Knorr Brake Company.

Selmer is active with the Blacksmith Guild of Central Maryland and is a blacksmith master with the guild. “I work with the new people to make sure no one burns down the building,” he joked. He gives advice, shows them different techniques, explains how to use the tools safely and also gives lessons.

Selmer is starting a small business teaching classes at his Taneytown property studio and was selected as a finalist in this year’s Carroll Biz Challenge presented by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. His company is called Selmer Ironworks.

Selmer recently participated in the annual Blacksmith Days at the Carroll County Farm Museum. One of the competitions was to make a candlestick. He made a medieval-style candelabra and won. His design was influenced by his love of history and the Middle Ages as well as his love of ironwork.

“I really like the history of technology and manufacturing,” Selmer said. “As an engineer, I like to study how things are done. With blacksmithing and handwork, you can add so much more detail and personality than you get with standardized machines. I would like to make more armor and study the different periods and how they work.

Selmer and his wife Red will be taking part in the Carroll County Artist Studio Tour this year. Selmers studios are at 5823 Conover Road in Taneytown.

Selmer also sells his blacksmith works at Offtrack Art in Westminster and the Carroll County Farm Museum gift shop. His work can also be seen online at Selmerironworks.etsy.com. He can be contacted at Selmerironworks@gmail.com.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, the Atlanta History Center reminds visitors of the journey women have taken to gain the right to vote.

”We are standing in the exhibition Every Big Change: The Centennial of the 19th Amendment. The centenary was actually back in 2020. We had other events in 2020 that might have distracted us a bit from that. We left it open for people to come and see it because it really is an amazing story,” Vice President of Democratic Initiatives and Author Programs Claire Haley said.

“We’re in the Swan House, so there’s a second room here that’s been transformed to talk about ‘Women have the right to vote. Now what do they do with it?'” Haley said .

The fight for women’s suffrage was very different for white women than for colored women.

The exhibit covers the different timelines of women’s right to vote and suffrage. The different stories of women of color are woven throughout the exhibition.

“This exhibit is small but mighty,” Haley said.

This is all part of the center’s efforts to use its platform to positively impact our democracy.

“It’s a way we seek to connect history, to how we can all be more informed and engaged citizens in our local communities,” Haley said.

History can be made up of events from the past, but the ideas behind the stories in history can be factored into whatever the future holds.

“History can be difficult, it can be difficult and we’re not afraid of that, but it can also be inspiring,” Haley said, “There are so many stories of people in the past who have done amazing things. , incredible, and the good news is that they are only human too.

Summer may be coming to an end, but London still has plenty of cultural offerings for the autumn months ahead. We’ve put together an edition of the capital’s best exhibits, from thought-provoking art to fascinating historical exhibits and an exhibition about the world of musicals.

Beatrix Potter: drawn to nature, V&A

The charming drawings and stories of Beatrix Potter come to life in this new V&A exhibition that celebrates the life of the beloved children’s author.

Many of his sketches and letters will also feature, portraying the person behind the world famous name. Drawn To Nature is produced in collaboration with the Natural Trust.

Never-before-seen objects and props from the museum’s theater and performance collections will be on display, allowing you to have an immersive look into the world of musical theatre.


Hallyu! the korean wave

It’s been hard to miss the growing influence of Korean culture on the West, with movies and TV shows like Squid Game, Oldboy and Oscar winner Parasite becoming beloved classics outside of Korea and K Pop like BTS, Girl’s Generation and PSY becoming more mainstream with dedicated fanbases. Hallyu! The Korean Wave celebrates this, depicting how South Korea grew from a war-torn nation into a modern cultural powerhouse, through its influential culture and fashion and through events like the 1988 Seoul Olympics. The exhibit is a fascinating look at one of the world’s most daring cultures and is well worth a visit.


The British Museum: hieroglyphics reveal ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt is one of the most fascinating periods in the world, with its huge pyramids, rich pharaohs and hidden tombs. The hieroglyph writing system is a source of fascination in itself, and this new exhibition at the British Museum explores how we have come to understand them. The central piece of the puzzle is the Rosetta Stone – the world famous artifact currently housed in the museum, and the exhibition takes you through the earliest attempts to understand hieroglyphs in the centuries before the stone was discovered, up to to its discovery and to the understanding and revelations that discovery has brought with it.

We Are Queer Britain is part of Queer Britain, Britain’s first dedicated LGBTQ+ museum, which opened earlier this year in London. The exhibition has been open for a while now, but is definitely worth a visit if you’re not, giving you an insight into history and insight into the LGBTQ+ community in Britain, with plenty of emotional highlights that will make you pause and think.
