maira kalman exhibit: new york

What: Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World)
Where: The Jewish Museum, New York
When: March 11 thru July 31, 2011

In 2007 we had the pleasure of collaborating with Maira Kalman—illustrator, designer and author of contemporary life—for posters advertising the opening of CB2 Soho.

We were drawn to her unique point-of-view, and her extraordinary ability to recognize and portray the quaint moments of life in her work.

This curated selection features original works on paper, some samples of her photography, embroidery, and textiles—all of which were created over the past thirty years.

What: Rafael Soriano: Other Worlds Within, a Sixty Year Retrospective
When: January 29 thru March 27, 2011
Where: Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami

Miami resident Rafael Soriano is one of the most recognized painters of not only Cuba, but also of Latin American modernists. His abstract works poetically combine light and shadows, form and space, to spark the curiosity of our unconscious minds.

Born in 1920 in Cidra, Cuba, Soriano expressed an early inclination for painting and completed his studies at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, San Alejandro.

His resume includes a degree in 1943 as Professor of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture and as a visual arts teacher for almost 20 years near his home town. He was one of the founders, and later Director, of the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Matanzas, with a reputation as the most important art school in Cuba outside of Havana.

Exhibits of Soriano’s work began in Cuba as early as 1947 and didn’t seem to skip a beat when he went into exile with his family in 1962 and settled in Miami. This latest is a broad retrospective as the former U of M teacher exhibits 60 years worth of his life’s work.

visit chicago: for alexander calder


abstract mobile at CB2.com

A mobile is best described as a hanging sculpture of fluid motion.

Whether starting with a single wire—or balanced on a stand with a pointed tip, a stabile—thin arms with attachments are carefully positioned one off the other so they balance both physically and visually.

As their inventor in 1931, Alexander Calder is synonymous with mobiles. While sculptures that moved via machinery or motors may have inspired the name, Marcel Duchamp suggested it to Calder for his kinetic, or mobile art pieces.

Thru March 21st at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, is Alexander Calder in Focus. Don’t miss the opportunity to view this annual exhibition of his mobiles, stabiles, drawings and paintings.

Also, detour into the loop to see Calder’s Flamingo sculpture at the Federal Plaza, shown below.

CB2 exhibits at dwell on design

In its second year, Dwell on Design was held just weeks before our blog went live—June 26-28th—so we wanted to take the first opportunity to share our participation in this outstanding event. In addition to displaying most of our outdoor furniture and accessories, we gave directions to our new Sunset location and handed out—and ran out of!—reusable canvas totes.

“The West Coast’s Largest Modern Design Event,” conducted by the editors of Dwell magazine and held at the LA Convention Center, the event featured seminars, key-note speakers, and over 175 exhibitors focused on sustainability and innovations for the home. Off-site, self-guided tours of an exclusive collection of must-see homes in the Los Angeles area were also available.

Dwell editors talked with community leaders, builders, designers, artists, architects, craftsmen and entrepreneurs on topics ranging from future-thinking about developing successful design, sustainability, affordability and efficiency, design in the media, urban density, green entrepreneurship, historic preservation, the intersection of architecture and art direction, the growing convergence of design and food, and more.

Curated for a design conscious audience, exhibitors showcased pre-fab home options and smart building materials and ideas for kitchens and baths. Dwell Outdoor inspired with design ideas for outdoor living—including our Resort Sectional shown above—and the latest trend of vertical gardening. The Modern Family area promoted the creativity and originality behind modern design with a multitude of hands-on activities and displays geared towards children of all ages.

What were highlights of the show for you?
