Kenneth Noland: Unbalanced

Info

Paul Kasmin Gallery
515 West 27th Street
New York, NY 10001
January 28 – February 27th, 2016

Words

"It’s been on my mind – what would something be like if it were unbalanced? It’s been a vexing question for a long time. But it took the experience of working with radical kinds of symmetry, not just a rectangle, but a diamond shape, as well as extreme extensions of shapes, before I finally came to the idea of everything being unbalanced, nothing vertical, nothing horizontal, nothing parallel. I came to the fact that unbalancing has its own order. In a peculiar way it can still end up feeling symmetrical." Kenneth Noland, 1977

02. Boa lining.

Words

Here’s a liner jacket design from the Japanese brand Subtle that, much like their name suggests, offers an understated layer to make the transition from winter to spring a more graceful one. The fit is impeccable as are the details, which include a two-way zipper, boa pile lining, dual front pockets and leather piping around the cuffs.

Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture

Info

Tate Modern
Bankside
London SE1 9TG
November 11, 2015 – April 3, 2016

Words

While the initial press coverage has certainly died down and fans of Calder's work have surely seen the show, Performing Sculpture at London's Tate Modern has almost two months of its lengthy run to go. Charting the evolution of the American sculptor's practice, from early wire forms to his career-defining mobiles, the exhibition uses pieces from museums around the world to tell the story of one modernism's most important figures. With a strong focus on the 1930s and early '40s, particular attention is paid to the Cirque Calder performances that captured the imagination of the Parisian avant-garde; a revelatory visit to Piet Mondrian's studio; and the essential role of motion. If you live in London or find yourself in the capital before April 3rd, you really should make time to go. Like the Agnes Martin retrospective that preceded it, this is not something to be missed.

Veilance Ambassadors: Atsushi Nishijima

01

Video

01. Part 1 of 2.

Words

Although our thoughts have increasingly turned to spring, this pair of films promoting the Fall-Winter '15 collection by Arc'teryx Veilance are no less enjoyable. Focused on the New York-based photographer JIMA and shot on the streets that have so frequently featured in his work, the beautiful black and white videos discuss categorisation, the search for character and narrative in every image, and the climatic challenges faced by the city's residents.

NikeLab Air Force 1 Low

01. Premium leather upper and liner.

Words

I'd be curious to know how many versions of the Air Force 1 have been released by Nike since 1982. Over the years, the brand has attempted many times to elevate the icon with premium materials while maintaining its original aesthetic, and more often than not it hasn't been a total success. The recent NikeLab release, however, is very, very good. There are low and mid options in white, black, navy and red, all featuring deluxe uppers and Phylon cushioning. The only detail I might reconsider is the clear sole but as it's out of sight, it's easy to overlook.

Drawing Then: Innovation and Influence in American Drawings of the Sixties

Info

Dominique Lévy
909 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10021
January 27 – March 19, 2016

Words

Dominique Lévy in New York is currently showing a selection of drawings from some of my favourite artists. Curated by Kate Ganz, the exhibition features a variety of works by the likes of Agnes Martin, Brice Marden, Sol LeWitt, Richard Tuttle, Ellsworth Kelly and Josef Albers, among others. Looking at the evolution of drawing and the development of some of America's most prolific minimalists during an important time in the country's history, the show's tone is calm and mature, highlighting the power and impact their seemingly simple compositions.

Barbour SL Bedale 60/40 Jacket

Images

01. Four front pockets.
02. Rear vents.

Words

This 60/40 edition of the Barbour Bedale, created for the Japanese market, offers an interesting alternative in terms of fit and fabric. The cotton-nylon blend is one of those classic materials, often used for sturdily built breathable outdoor clothing, that has functioned awfully well since becoming a cult textile in the late 1960s. By using this cloth on a slim cut version of their most beloved jacket style, the British brand have created a real winner.
