Arts Month Sampler

BY TERRY BUNTROCK
@ VOL 2 ON SEP 04, 2012

Williamsburg is a famous tourist destination, especially through the Summer season and some major holidays. The city was looking for ways to extend that draw to what they call the shoulder seasons. They then hired Terry Buntrock to create and orchestrate Arts Month. Terry has managed to fill the month with dozens of art related events, and this presentation gives us just a sampling of some of those events.

BY ANNIE IVANOVA
@ VOL 31 ON DEC 10, 2016

國際策展人、創業家、《Taiwan by Design》作者


易安妮來自澳洲,長期關注藝術、科技與當代議題,多年來累積世界各地的生活經驗,對她來說,台灣就像是個親切的朋友。從收到一個青花瓷製的「趣遊碗」後,安妮開始深入了解臺灣文化並希望將青花瓷的美麗分享到全世界,之後便開始《Taiwan by Design》的計劃,彙整出 100 個有代表性的產品並訪談設計師,一路上充滿許多挑戰,但她仍跨越重重困難完成這項計畫。安妮笑著說:「當我隨著夢想努力時,所有的「不可能」,都成為了可能。」

International curator, Entrepreneur, 《Taiwan by Design》Author


Hailing from Australia, Annie is an award-winning curator working with art, technology, and contemporary issues. With many years of experience in different locations around the world, Annie is now a dear friend of Taiwan. She became deeply involved in Taiwanese culture after receiving a “Trip View Bowl” as gift. She thought that the blue-and-white porcelain bowl was beautiful but it needed someone to tell its story to global audiences. Soon after, Annie started a major book project to find 100 iconic products and interview the designers. Many challenges were on the way but she was brave and motivated to finish the work. Annie says: When I follow my dream, I see “impossible” as “I’m possible”.

BY DUMILE FUNGILE DLAMINI
@ VOL 31 ON DEC 10, 2016

LIHIYA 利希亞時尚社企共同創辦人 & 設計總監


多美麗來自非洲,從自己的原生家庭開始分享,也曾因舉辦走秀認識許多台灣原住民的孩子,驚訝於他們擁有許多想法也會勇敢提出。接著談到非洲與台灣的不同,在兩個國家間吸取養分再將其轉化為設計,也強調自己對台灣濃厚的情感。

LIHIYA Co-founder & Design Director


Hailing from Africa, Dumile begins by sharing about her original family. By hosting fashion shows, Dumile got to know many indigenous Taiwanese children. Dumile was surprised at how bold they were in proffering ideas. Then, turning to the differences between Africa and Taiwan, Dumile drew inspiration from both countries and turned them into designs, stressing her intense feelings towards Taiwan.
