CULTURAL AFFAIRS – Art without Borders

GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts
10/06/2021 - 03/10/2021

Laura was invited to exhibit work from her latest series, ‘Mygration’ at the latest exhibition at Grassi Museum of Applied Arts, Leipzig.

This exhibition was curated by Silvia Gaetti and takes a deep look at artists whose work also deals with issues of cultural affairs.

‘Exchange between cultures has always had an impact on their arts, their crafts, and their design. Just as people travel and migrate, objects adapt to new environments and contexts. This is reflected in their design: along with works of art, their forms, types of ornamentation, and techniques were and are subject to a transformation that arises from the experience of travel and migration.

CULTURAL AFFAIRS presents as “traveling objects” mainly jeweller , fashion and textile as well as graphic and industrial design by contemporary young designers and artists. These are characterized by an often global or transcultural origin and biography.

Exhibited here are global networks and interpretations of techniques and objects, as well as their developments, aesthetics, and messages that have changed through travel. In this time of cultural pluralism and heterogeneity, the focus on the present as well as the future underlines that collaborative, international, and intercultural projects are becoming ever more significant. The examples in the exhibition make it clear that, just as in our increasingly networked world today, the art and design of recent centuries would be inconceivable without transcultural encounters.’
