Melting Design from Melting Pop
MELTING identifies fusion.
MELTING POT has to do with simmering, the mixing of contamination verifiable
in a determined entity.
POP brings us back to the sense of communication, to the synthesis of a dynamic
use of language, to empathic rapport with diffused cultures.
MELTING POP is the multiform synthesis of a communication disposition of linguistic
MELTING POP is a combination of visual art and other creative languages.
MELTING POP was the title of a book I published in 2001. In its chapters, I
talked about the flow of useful starting points to exemplify the idea of linguistic
combinations. I did not fall into any theoretical excess, I avoided all philosophical
citations and I chose to work in the field. Thousands of creative ideas intersected
in a digressing geography, showing how the theory of a trend could be explicated
on the terrain of real examples.
MELTING POP is the title of exhibition project which, picking up where the book
left off, is distributed among various linguistic combinations. We will see
the artist interface with many diffuse and influential creative languages. We
will discover dozens of names that reflect the elastic principles of Melting
Pop, its complex identity, its indefinable, muddled, ever more transversal mechanism.
MELTING POP will go on to other international museums.
MELTING POP is a formula for specific exhibitions in private galleries. For
every exhibition I chose a single section, like Melting Music, Melting Chair,
MELTING POP is a brand of discussion, a tank of multicultural ideas, a multicoloured
flag for a vision of contemporary world.
MELTING POP, now, is a conference about design, especially about relations between
art, industrial and handicraft design.
