About "Wadjda"
2012 Comedy, Drama written and directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour (98 minutes - Arabic with English subtitles) presented by Alfanoose and Little W.

The first feature film by a female Saudi filmmaker and also the first shot entirely in Saudi Arabia. It tells the story of a 10-year old girl in a suburb of Riyad who desperately wants a bike to beat her friend Abdullah in a race - something her mother strongly opposes due to society’s view it endangers a girls virtue. Wadjdas plans to buy it herself are revealed and she needs to change her approach to reach her goal.

Eyebeam’s first exhibition at The Seaport District features garments developed by multidisciplinary teams using a combination of new techniques and traditional craft. Many of the artists, technologists and designers involved have found novel ways to externalize our inner feelings.

AIGA/NY Exhibit: Looking, Thinking, Making in the City

AIGA/NY x Seaport Culture District

The first in a series of two exhibitions, Looking, Thinking, Making in the City is about design practice in New York City.

Beyond producing fixed artifacts, designers now plan the context within which we experience commercial, educational, cultural, and political content, often switching between a variety of media, time scales, and audience perspectives. Before making something public, designers conduct visual research, talk to people, make prototypes, and iterate on ideas with the goal of synthesizing all of this work and creating coherent, meaningful, and delightful results.

AIGA/NY has invited five New York City-based design studios – MTWTF, Ming, Nothing in Common,Doubleday and Cartwright, and MTV – to demonstrate the process by which they achieve this goal. Each has a unique methodology and operates at a different scale, ranging from corporate design departments, to mid-sized design agencies, to small, one-person studios. AIGA/NY has asked each practice to share how one project comes together, beginning with research and ending with final production. In addition, each studio will occupy two walls of the gallery for one week. We invite you to return to this exhibition as it changes over the coming weeks, then join us again in October for our second exhibition, in which AIGA/NY looks at the impact of design in New York City.

AIA/CFA Exhibit: Sea Level, Five Boroughs at Water's Edge

AIA/Center for Architecture x Seaport Culture District

AIA’s exhibit opening for Sea Level: Five Boroughs at Water’s Edge.
Curated by Robert Sullivan
Photography by Elizabeth Felicella
Designed by Perrin Studio

Like the government-sponsored U.S. coastal surveys of the nineteenth century, Sea Level: Five Boroughs at Water’s Edge is a water’s eye view of New York; the city documented from it’s the tidal edge. Elizabeth Felicella’s photographic panorama begins at Fort Wadsworth—the fort that has, since the Revolutionary War, guarded the city and the Upper Bay of New York Harbor from the most eastern tip of Staten Island, the Verrazano Narrows. The panorama bends 25 miles north, to Fort Totten, the likewise ancient and strategic post that stands at the place where the East River ends and Long Island Harbor begins. Along the East River, the viewer will see a shore of every borough, as well as the development that marks it and characterizes it. Large photographic collages will explore the construction of the panorama itself.
