A Space For Being - Google Design Exhibition for Salone Del Mobile 2019

Studio Claudy Jongstra is proud to share our involvement in the Google installation, A Space for Being, for Salone del Mobile 2019.
A Space for Being is a Google Design Studio exhibition in collaboration with Muuto, Reddymade Architecture & Design, and the International Arts + Mind Lab at John Hopkins University.
Claudy Jongstra was commissioned by Reddymade to create a special art piece for the exhibition.
The installation explores #neuroaesthetics, a field of study that strives to understand how the mind and body respond to a vast array of aesthetic experiences. A Space For Being will highlight the importance of thoughtful design and its impact on our well-being. Stay tuned for more April 9th.
Thank you, Google, Reddymade, Muuto and the International Arts + Mind Lab at John Hopkins University to be part of this amazing project.
A Space for Being will be on view daily at Spazio Maiocchi April 9 through 14, 2019 from 10:00 to 17:30.

member society of arts - Akademie van Kunsten

After recently being named Visual Artist of the year 2019 Claudy Jongstra is now also honored to be selected as a Member of the prestigious Society of Arts (Akademie van Kunsten), part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences (KNAW - Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen). The Academy, deriving its authority from the quality of the members, acts as a forum, conscience, and voice of the sciences in The Netherlands and promotes quality in science and scholarship and strives to ensure that Dutch scholars and scientists contribute to cultural, social and economic progress. There are many similarities between the work of scientists and that of artists. Both are driven by passion, with creativity, curiosity, and originality playing a crucial role. The Society of Arts makes such similarities more explicit and helps restore the relationship between science and art. Artists are selected for membership based on their artistic merits, regardless of their discipline. The installation will take place on March 28, 2019.
