(Cyprus) – NiMAC and the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus organise first survey exhibition of Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades.
‘Things that go together’ reflects the designer’s twelve-year practice to date; from his eponymous brand to his extensive studio collaborations with established manufacturers. The show presents the designer’s process through his research, his personal collection of objects and finished works from the studio archive.
With sponsorship from Flos and the Bank of Cyprus, and support of E. Kyriakides Lighting, NiMAC will host a series of parallel events through the course of the exhibition, including guided tours, lectures, discussions, educational programmes, activities and workshops. In addition, a special publication will be launched in May by Apartamento Publishing. Contributors will be Yiannis Toumazis, Director of Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (NiMAC), Zoë Ryan, John H. Bryan Chair and Curator of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago, Emily King, Design Writer and Curator, Elena Parpa, Writer, Researcher and Curator, Artist Mario García Torres, and the publication’s editor, Alessandro Rabottini, Curator and Artistic Director of Miart.
