This project is so exciting!Over 200 artists, architects and designers will be represented in this show with their visions of intervention to fill in the blank of Guggenheim Museum‘s big central rotunda, or ‘void’. The show is part of the museum’s 50th anniversary celebration its impressive list of participants includes names likeĀ  Anish Kapoor, Rachel Whiteread and the Campana brothers – my fellow Brazilian designers.
A website accompanies the show.

Vancouver artist Natalie Purschwitz got herself in some fun trouble. For one year (started September 1st, 2009) she will only wear clothes made by herself. It would be almost easy if she wouldn’t have to create all her accessories as well. That includes sun glasses, shoes, socks, jewelry, underwear, bathing suits, etc. She came up with some very attractive pieces while questioning the limitations of clothing and its cultural aspects. Wearing or not a life-vest on a boat or finding ways of scuba-diving lead to more questions and answers. A great blog to subscribe.
From February 12 to 27 you can know more about the project at 8E. Cordova St, Vancouver, BC. Part of Bright Light project.
