Object Rotterdam: Between art and design

From February 9 to 12, 20 international galleries will be presenting limited editions and one offs from the disciplines of design, craftwork, fashion, architecture and art at the former warehouse Las Palmas in Rotterdam. The focus will be on objects between art and design, drawing a parallel with the Art Rotterdam fair taking place at the same time. Daily talk shows, a room installation by Studio Drift and film showings round out the program.


Kunsthaus Zürich: Ice and snow in art

Even though it might not seem much like winter outside at present, at least it does at the museum: With over 100 pictures and objects from the 16th and 17th centuries, from February 10 to April 29 Kunsthaus Zürich will be holding the exhibition "Winter Tales. Winter in art from the Renaissance to Impressionism". It features not only motifs associated with the cold, ice and snow, but also the cozy and cheerful aspects of the season. Among the exhibition highlights are floor-to-ceiling tapestries made to adorn the walls of palaces or a magnificent golden sleigh that belonged to Empress Maria Theresa.


De Singel: The fascinating work of Andrea Branzi

A designer, architect, theorist, teacher and curator, Andrea Branzi critically addresses topics such as star architecture and excessive consumption. The exhibition "Andrea Branzi" on the life and work of the Italian, born in 1938, will run from February 16 until May 26 at the de Singel art center in Antwerp and show texts, models and film material.


Guggenheim Museum: Exhibition on John Chamberlain

John Chamberlain was one of America's most important contemporary artists – famous for his assemblage aesthetics. The Guggenheim Museum in New York is now devoting an exhibition to the late sculptor. "John Chamberlain: Choices", will present over 100 works that clearly demonstrate his development in materials, size and techniques as well as his intuitive working method. It will run from February 24 until May 13.


MAK: Designed in China

Electric paintings, tiger balm, motorcycle rickshaws or palm leaf fans: typically Chinese products still generally sound exotic in the West, even though a large portion of our goods bear the label "Made in China". But who is behind the everyday things and buildings in modern China? The exhibition "Chinese Stuff" at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt/Main from February 23 until May 27 explores this question from aesthetic and social angles. Moreover, the collection campaign "What is Chinese stuff?" invites interested individuals to offer up personal Chinese objects as loans for the exhibition, the deadline for which is February 1.
