Cooper-Hewitt: Crossing Boundaries - The Transmission of Rococo


During its first wave of influence, the sinuous and sensuous curves of rococo rapidly spread across France, Holland, and Germany,developing a unique personality in each location. Cooper-Hewitt invites curators Henry Hawley, Reinier Baarsen, and Wolfram Koeppe to a panel discussion that examines the diaspora of rococo during the eighteenth century, and the regional differences in its expression.

Seventy-five posters by 50 artists survey Dutch poster design from 1890 through 1940. Dutch posters were generally smaller than their French counterparts, designed to be hung inside a shop rather than displayed outdoors and read from a distance. Featured artists include Th. H.A.A. Molkenboer, Theodorus Nieuwenhuis, Willy Sluiter, and Piet van der Hem.

Pioneers of Change


Yesterday I attended the kick-off event for Pioneers of Change, a festival of modern Dutch design, fashion, and architecture that is currently underway on Governor’s Island. Presented to celebrate the 400-year history of Dutch-American friendship, Pioneers of Change features installations by a number of leading Dutch designers in eleven former Officers’ houses at Nolan Park on the Island. It’s the first time the houses have been open to the public in thirteen years.
