Modernism + Film | SuperDesign
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
THURSDAY, MAY 14 AT 6 P.M.
SUPERDESIGN is a film about the Italian Radical Movement in Architecture & Design in the 1960’s and 70’s. Through the words and stories of people who were part of that movement, we retrace the history and the heritage of the movement. They take us back to that time when everything seemed possible.
The mid-1960s represented a revolutionary time when the need for change has spread everywhere in the Western world and has pervaded all the aspects of life. Some beautiful archival historical images recreate the atmosphere of the period. It was a time of ‘positive turbulence’ also on an artistic level. And even today we can definitely catch a glimpse of this radical viruses in our interviewees!
An introduction to the film will be made by Charlotte Architect, Dave Wagner.
An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.
