With Halloween approaching, the Remodelista editors have been taking note of dark-stained interiors on the harbor in Copenhagen, a London pop-up, and the new black. Here’s a look.
- New Yorkers: Artist and man about town Duncan Hannah has a new show, “Adrift in the 21st Century,” on view at Invisible Exports on the Lower East Side, until December 10 (see his former NYC apartment here and the Cornwall, Connecticut, house he shares with Megan Wilson in our first Remodelista book). Here’s what Invisible Exports says: “‘Adrift in the 21st Century’ is a Duncan Hannah dreamscape and includes an explosion of canvases depicting idyllic English countrysides of the interwar period, figures from Hollywood and the world of celebrity, and other spectral sources of Hannah’s particular variety of ‘authenticity and beauty.’”
- Another NYC art-stop must: “The Sculpture of Gonzalo Fonseca,” on view until March 11, 2018, at the Noguchi Museum, a retrospective exhibition of the sculptural work of Gonzalo Fonseca (1922–1997), a major figure in the development of modern Latin American art.
- West Coasters take note: Tickets are on sale for NorCal Rising: A Fundraising Event for North Bay Fire Recovery, next Friday at The Pearl in San Francisco, with auction items donated by Chez Panisse, Tail of the Yak, SFMOMA, and other Bay Area favorites, and proceeds to benefit UndocuFund. Get tickets here.
- Aerende, the UK-based housewares shop by a former travel editor, is having a pop-up at 7 Park St. in London, now through November 5.
- Also, catch Remodelista’s London correspondent Christine Chang Hanway at the pop-up on November 2, where she’ll be talking on a panel with Kate Watson-Smyth of Mad About the House and interiors designer Nina Woodcroft about why homes matter. More info on both the pop-up and the panel here.
- San Franciscans in the know: Swing by this under-the-radar pop-up in the apartment of an art director that pays homage to “the dark side of design.” Intrigued? Us too. It’s today only; details here.
- Margot has a block-printing workshop with Brooklyn-based Auntie Oti on her calendar.
- Is dark green the new black? We think so, at least when it comes to darkly striking exteriors.
- This week on Remodelista, we featured a small and efficient house, built by hand by a sculptor, on an island in Maine. Read more about the exteriors and landscaping (including the DIY Japanese paint, made with soot and persimmon, that gives the house its dark facade) over on Gardenista.
- Now trending: A Darkly Romantic House in Sweden by Skälsö Architects.
