29 January @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
A CONVERSATION salon. Discover the ‘magic moment’. Expect the unexpected at this mix-it-up, out-of-your-box conversation salon. Meet the kinds of people who might show up and try something new, if only there was a place and time, and yes, an invitation. This is the invitation, right here. Would you like to experience a ‘magic moment?’ Co-create it when you come to the conversation salon, ‘The Moment.’ Design Kompany’s A. Spaice will host the salon, providing a set of prompt-led activities. Prepare for the unexpected twists and turns in conversation that meanders, develops organically, and is a change from the ordinary. Be part of it. Happening in Kuala Lumpur. Max 16. RSVP requested. RSVP here.
What’s an ‘atelier?’
An atelier is a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer. Design Kompany’s ateliers are hosted by Akira Morita and Dipika Kohli.
ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. DK imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused* and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play? View gallery >
