Re-dressing urban space during the 2010 Milan Furniture Fair

P11_yelavichNABASusan Yelavich, visiting critic at Milan’s Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) since 2007, has been invited to return to NABA this March. With Milanese designer Anna Barbara, Yelavich will work with fashion and textile design students to create installations on Via Paola Sarpi—the heart of Milan’s Chinese community. Issues of hybridity and cultural identity will be explored through this active “re-dress” of urban space. The designs developed in the workshop will be realized this April during the 2010 Milan Furniture Fair. Yelavich’s contributions will also be published in the second volume to grow out of the larger project the workshop is part of—Milano Cina: Un’Esperienza di Design—initiated in 2009 by Nicoletta Morozzi, faculty, NABA. The workshop builds on Yelavich’s research and teaching in Parsons junior seminar Global Issues: Design and Visuality in the 21st Century: Culture.
