The postmodernism in its many, catchy and fresh versions under the sign of easily decodable products has been the leitmotiv of Florentine fashion tradeshow event Pitti, a celebration of semiotic from contemporary times which featured as special guests Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the creative directors of Kenzo (who contributed as fashion designers of New York brand Opening Ceremony to develop a casual-chic elegance and a laudable habit that gave rise to successful teamings with creatives as Chloe Sevigny, Yoko Ono and Delfina Delettrez).

“Postmodernism: style and subversion 1970-1990”, an exhibition which will be held from 24th September 2011 to 15th January 2012 in London at the Victoria & Albert Museum, exploring postmodernism, controversial phenomena that evolved from a subversive architectural movement in the early Seventies – where form follows function” as the architect Louis Sullivan asserted -, influencing yesterday and also today the mainstream as well as philosophy – successfully represented by Jacques Derrida – design, art, music, film, performance and fashion. Consumerism and excess, color, artificial looking surfaces, the idea of parody and freedom in design features in the exhibition, showcasing over 250 objects from the world of art and design. A not to be missed happening to discover, enjoy and understand the yesterday suggestions, a vision and aesthetic approach that is still contemporary, considering the postmodernism as a melting-pot that includes the ensemble of many, different styles and interpretations, revisiting the past.

“POSTMODERNISM:STYLE AND SUBVERSION 1970-1980” AL V & A MUSEUM DI LONDRA

“Postmodernism: style and subversion 1970-1990”, mostra che si terrà dal 24 settembre 2011 al 15 gennaio 2012 a Londra presso il Victoria & Albert Museum che esplora il postmodernismo, controverso fenomeno che si è evoluto a partire da un sovversivo movimento architettonico nei primi anni Settanta – in cui “la forma segue la funzione” come affermava l’architetto Louis Sullivan -, influenzando il mainstream di ieri e oggi come anche la filosofia – felicemente rappresentata da Jacques Derrida – il design, l’ arte, musica, cinema, performance e moda. Il consumismo e l’eccesso, il colore, le superfici dall’ aspetto artificiale, l’idea di parodia e libertà nel design è protagonista della mostra che espone più di 250 oggetti provenienti dal mondo dell’arte e design. Un evento imperdibile per scoprire, apprezzare e comprendere le suggestioni di ieri, una visione e approccio estetico che è ancora attuale, considerando il postmodernismo quale melting-pot che include l’assemblaggio di molteplici stili diversi e interpretazioni che rivisitano il passato.
