WHY I DESIGN
Nov

7:00 PM19:00

WHY I DESIGN

Museum of Vancouver invites Vancouverites to explore and celebrate innovation in action. 25 designers stationed throughout the museum’s galleries, discuss their work during Why I Design. 

Why I Design spotlights the process of invention. This year’s Why I Design pays particular attention to Social Impact through design strategies of upcycling and repurposed materials. Participating designers will engage you with stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things you’ve never seen before. You can ask the designers—ranging from those emerging their careers to innovative leaders in international corporations—what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.

This isn’t an art display or trade show. Why I Design provides an alternative to standard presentations by breaking down walls between disciplines and between designers and the public. It’s an opportunity to interact with the designers of the products and environments that shape your life. The participating designers represent enormously diverse creativity. Come see their latest ideas and developments!

Date: Saturday, November 3, 2018

Time: 7:00pm -11:00pm

Admission: $18 Advance | $23 General Admission + At the Door | $18 MOV Members 

Prices to do not include GST. Advance ticket price ends November 1 at 5pm.

FORM festival commissioned Film Screening

F-O-R-M’s Commissioning Fund is an exciting program offered by the festival for emerging artists. This year, we are delighted to have commissioned 6 new movement films from artists across Canada between the ages of 19-31. Each artist received up to $2000, equipment credit and access to the facility at Cineworks in Vancouver and Charles St. Video in Toronto. These resources all went towards the creation of brand new movement films to be screened and premiered on Saturday, September 15th. 
This years artists are working towards some very exciting movement ideas and concepts that involve seeing movement through music, fashion and mirrors and speak to issues of race, gender, identity, age and decolonization. 

Our commissioned artists include: Francesca Chudnoff (Toronto), Jennifer Su (Toronto), Eric Cheung and Alimzhan Sabir (Calgary), Roxanne Nesbitt (Vancouver), Cydney Eva Paddon of PatternNation (Vancouver/Durban), Elizabeth Armitage and Aidan Chin (Vancouver). 
We are thrilled to present these six new films to you. Thank you and congratulations to everyone for making these films a reality, and for being a part of our third F-O-R-M Commissioning Fund Program!

After an inspiring weekend of movement films, we hope you can join us at Left of Main to converse, celebrate and dance with F-O-R-M's artists, producers, audiences and volunteers of the festival! 
PatternNation will be curating this event in full colour and pattern effect. Bringing some of the elements from their F-O-R-M commissioned film TRIANGULATE alive. PatternNation interactive BLOBS created by Cydney Eva will fill the space for us all to play in, pattern projections by Bangalore based visual artist Brianna Klassen will be shown and South African rapper CostaBesta will be performing his track from the film and more.

Fashion Revolution South Africa
May
3
to May 20

Fashion Revolution South Africa

Conscious living, up-cycling, fashion forward has never been so relevant as it is today. Join The KZNSA Gallery on Thursday 3 May for the exhibition opening of Fashion Revolution: #WhoMadeMyClothes? at 17h30. There will be a LAB Talks at 16h00 before the official opening, where you can engage in depth on the subject.

ABOUT

We are people from all around the world who make the fashion industry work. 

We are the people who wear clothes.
And we are the people who make them. 
We are you. 

We are the 'pro-fashion protesters' because we love gashion and want to see it become a force for good. We celebrate fashion as a positive influence while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry's most pressing issues. 

Be Curious. Find Out. Do Something. 

ABOUT

Leandi Mulder Designs are focused on sustainable practices, paired with intricate handcrafting techniques such as hand-weaving, embroidery and textile construction. As a recent graduate; comfort, perfection, attention to detail and a wabi-sabi approach to creative development are what makes Leandi Mulder Designs distinctively appealing. Her design philosophies rely on an eco-conscious mentality, a global aesthetic and a unique point of view.

Pattern Nation is a collaborative and inclusive platform aimed at connecting artists who embrace bold colour and pattern globally. PatternNation was founded by Vancouver Canada based artist and fashion designer Cydney Eva. PatternNation collaborations engage with many indigenous and radical thinking artists globally. As an act of decolonization through art PatternNation shoots, events, video's and clothing aim to create conversation around identity politics. Part of the platforms mandate is to create more space for inter-generational women and people of colour in fashion and to facilitate cross cultural sharing through art. The aim of PatternNation is to work directly with artists from various backgrounds and create content that subverts the usual consumption of Caucasian minimalist work in the art and fashion worlds.

A FANTASTIC VOYAGE to the PATTERN NATION joburg

Assemblage is excited to currently have Cydney Eva of PatternNation on residency. Join us on Friday 7 April from 6pm for a collaborative art opening of immersive painting, interactive sculpture and experimental performances.

Inspired by the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage, in which the voyagers travel inside of the human body. This exploration in space, pattern and self expression aims to create another world of creativity that consumes the room. Self reflection, connection, surrealism, fun, play and interaction are all elements that have brought together this group of artists from Joburg, Durban, and Vancouver. Assemblage artist in resident Cydney Eva founder of PatternNation aims to create a truly collabor...ative performative night that breaks away from conventional art functions and allows us to laugh, dance, observe, play and groove together. This voyage will consist of 3 experimental hip hop and RnB performances happening in different parts of the gallery space. DJ owabowa will hold down the night with a mixture of base music, feminist/queer rap, house and hip hop. There will also be a small pop up shop of PatternNation painted and silkscreened clothing, PatternNation rope jewelry and the collaborative zines made in the workshop with alphabet zoo.

Lovely Unidentified Culture of Yesterday's Destination,
a fun, colorful art exhibition for big and little kids alike, All Ages welcome

Since the age of seven, Cydney and Brianna have been compiling oddities. After releasing two albums under the moniker BAS3, shooting numerous photo shoots around their native Noquitam, and completing degrees in architecture and visual arts, we now bring you a compilation of our paintings, found poems, photographs, jewelry and fabric installations.

Co-curator of Mania Mag and up and coming DJ, Orla will be filling the space with house beats, hip hop, South African new age kwaito, Qgom, Future Rnb and more. On her Birthday of all days!! come groove with us and celebrate art, imagination and silliness. 

~ PocketSocial Art Raffle~

We are partnering with PocketSocial (an event app that connects like minded-people) to offer an art raffle to everyone who attends the event. One of Brianna Klassen's amazing paintings and two Pattern Nation Rope Necklaces will be given away, with more chances to win for those who join the PocketSocial network.

is a Canadian born Visual Artist, Dancer, Writer, Performer, Presenter and jewelry & fashion Designer living and working out of Vancouver BC on unceded Coast Salish Territories. She is also the Co-founder and Artistic Director of MANIA MAG and creates art through her platform PatternNation.

PATTERN NATION MISSION

We are living in a Pattern Nation, repetition is in music, fashion, visual art, even the way we move through our cities and live our daily routines. So lets embrace and play with this through the way we dress and the spaces we live in. 

PatternNation is not only a jewelry and design brand but also a way of thinking about the world. We are constantly bombarded by minimalist aesthetic: PatternNation asks you to think differently and make it funky. 

The show will be available for viewings by appointment for the week following the opening night.
