Homecoming

If someone told you time traveling was a possibility.

If someone told you they have done it on many occasions.

You would laugh at them, wouldn’t you?

That’s what she had said.

I go over these words in my head

now that I am sitting in the empty hotel room.

I go over these words and I think to myself: can it be true?

The ashtray still containing the ends of the cigarettes she smoked.

It’s not at all how you imagine it.

It’s not at all how you imagine it.

Call for Papers: Beyond Myths: Ideas, Values, and Processes in Design History

Beyond Myths: Ideas, Values, and Processes in Design History
ARCOS DESIGN
Vol 10, Número 1, April 2018
Editor: João de Souza Leite

This is a call for papers for Arcos Design magazine, Volume 10, number 1, concerning the History of Design.

Arcos Design is an academic journal in design, peer-reviewed, linked to the Graduate Program in Design of the School of Design (ESDI), State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Created in the 1990s by members of the ESDI faculty, when design post-graduate education in Brazil began, Arcos Design persists in promoting the intersection of design studies with philosophy, sociology, economics, in order to expand the understanding of the system of production and consumption of artifacts in general. The word Arcos refers not only to the historical site where ESDI is located, in downtown of Rio de Janeiro, in front of an old aqueduct of the 18th century, but also to the bridges that it intends to establish with several areas of knowledge.

After its edition was suspended for some time, the magazine was revived in digital format in the ESDI Graduate Program in Design, available at
http://www.e-publicacoes.uerj.br/index.php/arcosdesign/index.

Call for papers

We seek contributions that allow the understanding of design outside the conventional lines of historical investigation. In this sense, approaches that deal with the insertion of observed phenomena in all types of context, as long as well characterized, are of interest. In the range of questions raised by the terms “ideas, values, and processes”, it is important to articulate reflections in the historical dimension, whether in the past or in the present time, as well as investigate processes of invention and design properly located in cultural and technological geographies.

The following topics can be addressed, though not exclusively:
1.       epistemological and methodological issues about the making of history;
2.       historiographic issues facing the current challenges of design – history of
ideas, history of concepts, intellectual history, among other possibilities;
3.       relations between distinct cultural manifestations;
4.       world history versus unique stories, clearly identified with specific contexts;
5.       micro-history of design – recording and critique of culturally located
productions;
6.       macro-history in design – topics;
7.       gender issues in project practice;
8.       identity issues in project practice;
9.       particular design processes in design;
10.     historical topics in technology and design – e.g. linearity / modularity, analog /
digital.

We are grateful for the submission of contributions, which will be submitted to a peer-review process, with two evaluations. In case of a tie, a third evaluation will be requested. For the first time in the history of the publication, this edition of Arcos Design will have worldwide circulation, and therefore will be edited in English.

The size and format of contributions may vary from topical observations to the presentation of graphic or photographic documentation. The work shall be conducted at the academic level, and the academic articles formatted according to specified conventions.

Walking Between Streets in the Sky

In 2017, Tamara Stoll and James Lander developed their shared interests in social housing in London under threat of redevelopment and the practice of walking and conversation, into a visual essay. The housing in question, Boundary Estate, Ashington House, Ocean Estate, Balfron Tower and Robin Hood Gardens is located in Tower Hamlets, East London. Tamara and James invited collaborators to five conversation-led walks between two estates at a time: Ken Worpole, Lisa Mckenzie, Nayia Yiakoumaki, Geraldine Dening, Simon Elmer and Catherine Croft. Input was sought from architecture to activism, from anthropology to art. The aim was to make connections between different experiences, perspectives and areas of expertise.

Titled ‘Walking Between Streets in the Sky’, the book maps each estate through selections from conversation transcripts accompanied by footnotes. Limited to an edition of 50 copies, each book lists the 50 recipients who were chosen for a connection between where they live or work and the content of the conversations. The Architects for Social Housing (ASH), co-founded by Dening and Elmer, included the book in their discursive week long residency at the ICA, London in Summer 2017. Walking Between Streets in the Sky is accessible at libraries in Tower Hamlets, at UAL libraries and as a pdf here.

Book design is by Bec Worth, an Australian designer with an interest in the social implications, and digressive possibilities, of walking. Bec is a participant of the MA Graphic Media Design course at London College of Communication (LCC). Tamara, an LCC alumnus, is a post-graduate photography student at the Academy of Fine Arts, Leipzig, Germany. James is a PhD candidate at Chelsea College of Arts, London. Printing was supported by the Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon MPhil/PhD Student Initiative Fund.

Bletchley Park Week

5 June – 10 June

From code-breaking to cyber security

Kellogg will celebrate its strong and growing ties with Bletchley Park with a week-long programme of events from 5 to 10 June 2017. Scroll down for an overview of the week and please keep checking back for further details.

Bletchley Park was the home of wartime code-breaking, as featured in The Imitation Game, a 2014 film in which Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed the mathematician Alan Turing and his efforts to crack the German Enigma code. There will be something for everyone, including a visit by one of the Enigma machines from Bletchley; access to the ‘roll of honour’ where the database can be searched for those who worked there; a poster competition to describe relevant research, the winners of which will get to display their posters at Bletchley and explain the research to the many thousands of visitors; the first of what we intend to be an annual Kellogg coach trip to Bletchley, with guided tours; and two themed Guest Night Dinners.

Paul Coldwell in conversation with Christopher Le Brun

Professor Paul Coldwell will be in conversation with the Artist & President of the Royal Academy of Arts, Christopher Le Brun.

Book Tickets

Christopher Le Brun is a painter, sculptor and printmaker, an alumni of Chelsea College of Art and the current President of the Royal Academy of Arts.

This conversation will primarily focus on his work in print, the discipline for which he was originally elected to the Royal Academy. His work as a printmaker has been rich and varied, ranging in scale and process from large mural scale monotypes made with Garner and Richard Tullis in Santa Barbara, through to small scale intimate etchings published by Paragon Press with whom he has had a long association. Le Brun’s prints are generally the result of a dedicated period of engagement resulting in series and portfolios of work which explore themes and ideas current in his paintings and sculptures. Notable publications include Seven Lithographs 1989, 50 Etchings 1990, Four Riders 1993, Wagner 1994, Motif Light 1998, Paris Lithographs 2000, Fifty Etchings 2005 and the newly released Seria Ludo woodcuts in 2015.

Paul Coldwell is an artist and Professor in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts. He has written extensively on printmaking, is on the editorial board of the journal Print Quarterly and is a regular contributor to Art in Print for whom he writes regularly. He has curated a number of exhibitions including Morandi’s legacy: Influences on British Art (which included Le Brun) and more recently, The artists’ Folio as a site of Inquiry.

This event is organised by Chelsea College of Arts in partnership with Print Quarterly.

Jessica Ogden: Still

31-33 Church St, London NW8 8ES

26 May – 23 June 2017 (11.00 – 18.00 Thursday, Friday, Saturday)

Private View: Thursday 25 May 2017, 18.00 – 20.00 (RSVP to [email protected])

May 2017 sees the opening of an exhibition by Jessica Ogden in London. Entitled Still, it acts as an exploration of Jessica’s work through the static display of archive and current works, alongside a series of workshops. Church Street, Marylebone plays host to the experience, which was born out of a long running conversation between Jessica and Professor Carol Tulloch, writer and curator at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, who will curate the exhibition. The space is designed by Professor Judith Clark, a London-based curator, who collaborated closely with Jessica.

Born and raised in Jamaica, Jessica began her career in fashion reusing the old to create the new. In 1992, after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design and the Byam Shaw School of Art, she joined Oxfam’s NoLoGo project. Working with donated clothes, Jessica found herself at the forefront of what was then termed customising. The following year Ogden launched her own label using traditional stitching, hand printing and layering techniques and often appropriating old garments such as quilts. Soon after the label’s launch, Ogden staged catwalk shows and presentations as part of London Fashion Week from 1996-2006. Her work continued with cult French label A.P.C., with whom after moving to Paris, she deepened her work to include a line of quilts made from archive A.P.C. fabrics, another example of her continuing obsession with repurposing in fashion.

In 2016 Jessica made the decision to return to live in Jamaica, taking over the running of Harmony Hall, her mother’s gallery which champions local Jamaican art, alongside continuing her fashion projects. Perhaps it was this move that offered Jessica the perspective to look back on her journey thus far. A large theme running through all of Jessica’s work is story telling. In the same way, the exhibition will act as an autobiographical study through the selection and display of pivotal work. Alongside this, Jessica will hold free workshops for the visitors to the exhibition, which in themselves will provide insight and inspiration into her unique practice. Workshops will include free hemming and customisation, amongst other activities. Three workshops will be led by Ogden and places are limited.

To illustrate and further explain the exhibition Jessica and Carol have worked on a publication with accompanying imagery by Syd Shelton and text by Tamsin Blanchard.

Jessica Ogden: Still has been curated by Professor Carol Tulloch and is a Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School project.
