Two Things Not to Miss in New York and Miami

A few event recommendations from us to you, as we know you’re probably itching to get out there and do some cultural stuff now that the weather has turned. First, in New York next Monday the 8th, we’d highly encourage you to get over to the latest Dot Dot Dot series held by the MFA program in interaction design at the School of Visual Arts. They’ll be interviewing four guests, director and all-around good guy Gary Hustwit, frog design‘s top designer, Jason Severs, writer and Wired regular Clive Thompson, and design professor Elisabeth M. De Morentin from Chicago’s own Illinois Institute of Technology. RSVP here and you’ll find the details below:

Monday, December 8

145 E Houston Street

Next up, albeit earlier than the event above and in a place where the weather never turns, is starchitect David Adjaye making an appearance down at Art Basel Miami this Saturday the 6th. The event is entitled “Art Loves Architecture” and Adjaye will be sharing the stage with artists Matthew Richie and Teresita Fernandez, along with the moderator Aaron Betsky, director of the Cincinnati Art Museum and curator of this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale. All the details are here and a little info on the topics, here:

The panel will discuss the roles, responsibilities and authorship in the collaborations that all three of them are undertaking and explore how the ideas of art and architecture converge, what architects and artists can learn from each other, and what kind of practice could potentially emerge from this blurring of previously demarcated practices.
