Virtual Design Destination
This year the Virtual Design Destination by Adorno will be the place to discover curated country collections of collectible design during the London Design Festival 12-20 September 2020. Each day we will tune in on two country collections, where visitors will be able to enter the virtual environments with a guided tour by the curators.
Maria Joanna Juchnowska and Mari JJ Design is represented at Polish Collection by Instytut Adame Mickiewicza.
"Preparations for “The New Reality” were initiated during the surge of COVID-19 in Europe. The curators of the fourteen participating countries have been asked to reflect on specific experiences, thoughts, and themes from the time of lockdown in the curation and art direction of each of their country collections. They have been working with their local designers at the intersection of craft and design to develop sub-narratives to the overarching theme, including gender, urbanization, climate, isolation, and healing, among others. Using design as a tool for change, “The New Reality” pursues effective and innovative solutions, bringing different knowledge and experiences together through design to investigate what our new reality is."
"2010._" is an exhibition presenting the works of eleven artists and designers who studied together, and graduated in 2010 and 2011 at the Ceramics and Glass Department at Academy of Fine Arts Arts and Design in Wrocław, Poland.
"After a decade of individual creative activity, most of the eleven artists and designers that have studied together, and graduated in 2010 and 2011, meeting again at the collective exhibition. In addition to the presentation of high-quality ceramics, painting, and design, this is a sentimental journey and a return to the other thresholds of the Wroclaw Academy. The individual artistic activity of each of them, in areas such as artistic ceramics, design, painting, and illustrative painting is a great success. The artists act independently. ”Many of them started their brands and workshops in Poland and abroad in Norway, the United Kingdom, and Spain.
