IHEAP (BIENNALE DE PARIS): 20 STUDENTS WANTED TO INVESTIGATE CRUCIAL ISSUES OF ART IN 21ST CENTURY

LE LOUVRE, PARIS – PHOTO BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

In 1983, the Mayor of Paris, Jacques Chirac, gave Pontus Hulten the task of creating a graduate school for research in contemporary art. Its antecendents were to be the Weimer Bauhaus School and Black Mountain College in the U.S., and it was meant to function as an alternative to Paris’s École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. The Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (Iheap) offers participants a course of study where they can free themselves from the inherited art history of the 20th century, by investigating crucial issues of art in the 21st Century, an ongoing history in which the participants will eventually take part.

IHEAP is the Education section of the Biennale de Paris. The programme presupposes an intellectual orientation to which it is desirable, but not indispensable, to adhere. The Institute is open to all those who have an interest in singular and extreme practices which currently and sporadically appear in the art world and elsewhere. Iheap is for those who want to change their artistic practice or professional activity, for those who after several years of art school want to break free of alienated learning, who expect more from a school than a framework for artistic production, for those who reject art as it is commonly practiced, and finally for those who wish to work on essential issues in intimate and experimental conditions.

Only twenty students a year are chosen to study at Iheap. The course of study is completed in two years (or sessions). The first year is composed of two ten-week cycles, three half-days each week, dedicated to a single theme. The second year is dedicated to the creation of an investigative text of thirty pages, without illustrations. Its purpose is to demonstrate the development of the participant’s research. The development of this document will be carefully followed by Iheap’s staff. Study at Iheap is equivalent to a post-graduate degree. The application fee is 65 euros. Tuition is 2000 euros for the first year, 500 euros for the second, payable in one or two installments. Financial assistance is available.

There’re also some geometric shapes and topics – such as those presented in this photo-gallery – in the new textile collection that  Bruno Boggia Studio (Como, Italy) displays from today in Paris at “Première Vision” of Indigo Salon (September 19-21, 2012,  Paris-Nord Villepinte). Lucia and Bruno Boggia, along with their collaborators, participate to the famous Parisian event bringing a range of novelty already appreciated in different parts of the world. Bruno Boggia Studio created beautiful limited-edition silk scarves with my torn poster images…

In Paris they propose designs and fabrics which  anticipate the next fashion trends. The Indigo Salon is traditionally considered the “first vision” of what is going to happen to the world-fashion. The Paris Show puts on display ideas and suggestions for the next catwalks and pret-a-porter fashion shows, trying to overcome the effects of the market crisis. Best wishes for a speedy recovery are also coming from the Bruno Boggia Studio’s colorful proposals which focuse on the most effective colors, combining tradition and innovation. As shown in this pics, where geometry suggests ideas and emotions to textiles.  

HEC PARIS EXTENDS ITS DEVELOPMENT AND OPENS NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART ACADEMIC BUILDING / AN INNOVATIVE DESIGN

HEC PARIS EXTENDS ITS DEVELOPMENT AND OPENS NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART ACADEMIC BUILDING / AN INNOVATIVE DESIGN ©-Ute-Zscharnt-for-David-Chipperfield-Architects

On June 2012 alumni, journalists, faculty, staff and students participated in an inauguration ceremony celebrating the opening of a new academic building on the campus in Jouy-en-Josas. The ceremony was chaired by Pierre-Antoine Gailly – President of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Henri Proglio – President of the HEC Paris Board, Chairman and CEO of EDF and Bernard Ramanantsoa- Dean of HEC Paris, in the presence of Jean d’Arthuys – President of the HEC Alumni Association and Daniel Bernard – Chairman of the HEC Foundation.

The innovative design of the new HEC Paris building was crafted by David Chipperfield Architects. The buildings give a strong visual identity to HEC, creating a new entrance for the campus that is in harmony with the existing structures. A golden gleam of anodised aluminium ‘fins’ adds a rhythm to the façade, which stretches 126 metres long. This new, elegant building extends the educational and administrative space by 9,500m². Several lecture theatres and class rooms will be inaugurated in the name of generous donors from the HEC Foundation, many of whom will be present at the ceremony today.

Worldwide competition between business schools has come to a new level’, comments Pierre-Antoine Gailly – President of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry. ‘Work spaces equipped with state-of-the-art technology today constitute a must-have that both the students and the professors consider when selecting a school. The Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry is proud to support HEC Paris’ expansion plans for the future.’

The shape of the building, with its shifted blocks, aims to create a more intimate environment for people to experience on arrival on the campus. The multi-faceted blocks naturally integrate with the surrounding buildings, and provide a series of sheltered semi-courtyards along the length of the site. By staggering the structural volumes in this way, David Chipperfield Architects has created a distinctive, human-scale feel to the space, while providing ample facilities for students and academics. Informal study areas and teaching spaces revolve around a large common hall, which serves as a ‘social collector’ and links the building with other facilities. Additionally, the impressive auditorium and other common spaces have high-specification technical treatments, to ensure excellent quality presentation facilities.

The new building is a stimulating open learning environment that encourages interpersonal interaction. Advanced information technology and telecommunications solutions facilitate the exchange of ideas among participants in different locations around the world. It provides a shimmering new façade for HEC facing the existing main campus entrance and the future expansion.

PREVIEW ON TEXTILE DESIGN TRENDS FOR FASHION 2013

I recently visited friends Lucia and Bruno at Bruno Boggia Disegni Studio in Como. And I immediately jumped in the future and in a sea of colors. Textiles designer Bruno and his daughter Lucia, together with their staff, are workin’ hard on fashion future trends ventures. Indeed, the gaze is fixed on the spring and summer 2013 (yes, 2013, it’s not a mistake). I had the way to take a look at textile products for future collections. It’s still the color to dominate.

In this post I give a “première vision” about these extraordinary designs that later we’ll see – transformed in dresses – on the next catwalks. We may to admire the extraordinary combination of colors, the geometry association and the relaunch of floral themes.

Bruno Boggia Disegni has returned from a positive season. He has received great attention at the Paris Salon Indigo (September) and renewed acclaim to ComoCrea (last October).

BRUNO BOGGIA DISEGNI: ANTEPRIMA SULLE TENDENZE DEL 2013

Presso lo Studio Boggia Disegni di Como si respira aria… di futuro. Bruno, Lucia e le loro collaboratrici, hanno già gli occhi puntati sulle tendenze prossime venture. Anzi, lo sguardo è fisso sulla primavera estate del 2013. Abbiamo avuto modo di dare uno sguardo ai tessuti prodotti per le prossime collezioni. E’ ancora il colore a dominare.

In questo “post” offriamo una “prima visione” di questi straordinari tessuti che prenderanno poi corpo nei capi di vestiario in preparazione per le passerelle. Ci sono da ammirare lo straordinario abbinamento delle tinte, l’accostamento delle geometrie ed il recupero (o la valorizzazione) del tema floreale.

Bruno Boggia Disegni è reduce da una stagione positiva. Ha ricevuto grande attenzione al Salone Indigo di Parigi (settembre) e rinnovati consensi a ComoCrea (lo scorso ottobre).

A WIND OF COLORS FOR PARIS INDIGO SALON

 This is the prevalling offer that Bruno Boggia Disegni will bring to the international event for textile and fashion operators (September 20-22).

 

Colors, colors and many more colors. This is the prevalling offer that Bruno Boggia Disegni will bring to the famous “Indigo”, the Paris international event for textile and fashion operators (September 20-22, Hall 5, 5Y41, Indigo Salon, Paris-Nord Villepin).

As Lucia Boggia says, the showroom idea came from the trends book by Chiron, who was inspired by Odyssey stories, imagining escapes from monotony and monochromatism. In Paris, Bruno Boggia will propose designs that will be the trends for spring-summer 2013 and – for the American market only – for autumn-winter 2013. The Indigo is traditionally considered the “first view“ on what is going to happen in the world-fashion. The Paris Indigo will offer ideas and suggestions to be compared with the nexts pret-a-porter défilès and shows.

Lucia Boggia, with the assistance of her father Bruno and collaborators, prepared textile designs (silk, satin, chiffon) set to win over eyes and curiosity of a worldwide customer base. The Indigo “Première Vision” will be preceded by events scheduled at the Westminster Hotel (Paris, Rue de la Paix) where will take place meetings with customers and fashion operators (September 18-19).
