Valorizzazioni Culturali | Art-Events and AtemporaryStudio present, in coincidence with the Milan Design Week 2017, the exhibition IRONICALLY ICONIC which will take place from 4 to 9 April at Brera Site, in the heart of Milan.
An exhibition in which the most sophisticated production and creative techniques wear original forms, sometimes weird and funny, that ironically represent modern customs and traditions.
Formal icons and everyday objects, apparently conventional, reveal themselves in the wonder and surprise of the unexpected.
Unexpected design for expected uses, the slogan of the exhibition, anticipates the outcomes that the reversal of roles between irony and icon can generates. At times grotesque, tragic and even disorienting, it is on the impact of wonder, curiosity and play that the products showcased insist.
Not a mere formal game but rather the result of a reflection on the unconventional use of objects, materials, decoration that offers the opportunity to gain an insight and unprecedented cross-over design. Beyond any temporal and geographic boundaries.Valorizzazioni Culturali | Art-Events andAtemporaryStudio selected and invited designers, brands and companies of different field, which made of irony their style, to submit one or more works to small compositional projects.
