S P A C E || The Moment
29 January @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MYT
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?’
Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. An atelier is ‘a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer.’ These are places where you can meet new and different *others* to connection remarkable ways.
ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing, the hosts attended to the inner strengths of each participant. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. We imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused (watch the film Posthumous, for a great comment on this) 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?
