Samuel Adams Celebrates 30th Anniversary of OctoberFest

The brewers at Samuel Adams have announced the return of Sam Adams OctoberFest. It is the number 1 selling fall seasonal beer that has won 125 international awards and spans a three-decades history.It is a highly anticipated event for tipplers and is back this autumn in time to celebrate its 30th anniversary. “The beer is a traditional Oktoberfest marzen style that uses a proprietary blend of four different malts to create a rich, smooth almost creamy beer perfect for when the weather begins to turn a little cool and crisp,” Samuel Adams says. The Oktoberfest signals the season’s change ushering in the fall with its deep red amber color to the roasted caramel aroma. It also has a malt backbone that creates a sweetness of toffee notes, balanced with just enough bite from the hops.The OctoberFest is rooted in celebration. Historically it originated in Munich, Germany in 1810, when the Crown Prince’s wedding was marked with a 16-day party and marzen beer. Over the course of time, brewers have lightened the centerpiece beer so locals and visitors could drink more of it.Sam Adams OctoberFest remains true to its origins. It also pairs well with hearty dishes such as lamb, pot roast, bratwurst or burgers. “Fans of this German lager will appreciate the heirloom Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger Noble hops and note the sweet blend of malts for a balanced brew,” Samuel Adams informs.Sam Adams will be there at the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati™ in Cincinnati, Wynwood Octoberfest in Miami or at its own Boston Brewery Tap Room’s OctoberFest on September 26–27. The beer will be available in six-pack and 12-pack bottles, 24-pack and 28-pack bottle loose cases, 12-pack cans, on draft and in cans on JetBlue flights.For more details, visit: www.samueladams.com https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

“Connecting Afro Futures. Fashion – Hair – Design” at Kulturforum, Berlin

 Berlin’s Kulturforum and Kunstgewerbemuseum will host “Connecting Afro Futures. Fashion – Hair – Design” that opens on August 24, 2019, and runs through December 1, 2019.The exhibition is a project of the Kunstgewerbemuseum and features a generation of young African fashion designers who are currently redefining “African” fashion and setting up innovative design hubs throughout Africa.In today’s day, African culture should no longer serve only as a source of inspiration for Western fashion designers. The ‘Generation Now’ is proving the very same by currently breaking up the hegemony of the “Western fashion system.” Similarly, if we look at it from a historical context, hair and along with it “African” bodies were a common ground for the exercise of colonial power. It was disciplined, regulated, and subjected to the Western ideal of beauty. Traditional African hairstyles are being once again disseminated and made accessible today. They are also being used as a marker of creative identity formation while hair as an artistic material is increasingly coming to the front.Taking this concept forward, the Kunstgewerbemuseum has invited fashion designers and artists to reposition the themes related to fashion and hair within a museum context with installation works.This multi-project began in November of 2018 at the museum with a joint one-week workshop on global fashion, museum and collection policy, and decolonial discourse. This year in March and April, the final results were presented on-site in Dakar and Kampala. “ In August 2019, the results of the project stations and collaborations will be played back to the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin,” the museum informs.On view are mixed-media installation “The Perfect Stereotype” by Lamula Ander-son (London/UK, Kampala/Uganda). In “Barkcloth Connecting Afro Futures Using the Signs of the Now,” fashion designer Jose Hendo (London/UK, Kampala/Uganda) uses the traditional Ugandan material “bark-cloth.” The label uses this material to address questions of sustainability in contemporary fashion. A multimedia work based on their current collection “54Punk” is in development by Bull Doff (Dakar/Senegal). Whereas Adama Paris (Dakar/Senegal) in her installation “Shameless Afro Hair,” questions beauty ideals and norms for hair and fashion in the African context. Wig sculptures designed after Berlin architectural icons by artist Meschac Gaba (Cotonou/Benin) are part of the display.Apart from these, other works by artists such as Diana Ejaita (illustrator, Berlin/Germany), Njola Impressions (Kampala/Ugan-da), Tondo Clothing (Kampala/Uganda) and Ken Aicha Sy (Dakar/ Senegal) as well as fashion and music videos, photographs and illustrations are also part of the exhibition.“Connecting Afro Futures. Fashion – Hair – Design” opens on August 24, 2019, and runs through December 1, 2019, at the Kulturforum, Matthaikirchplatz, 10785 Berlin, Germany.For details, visit: https://www.smb.museum/museen-und-einrichtungen/kulturforum/home.htmlClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Museum of Arts and Design to Host Major Retrospective of American Fashion Designer Anna Sui

Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York will host a major retrospective of the American Fashion Designer Anna Sui titled “The World of Anna Sui” from September 12, 2019, through February 23, 2020.“The World of Anna Sui” is scheduled to open during New York Fashion Week and features75 looks from the designer’s archive. The archives are taken from her inaugural fashion show of 1991 to her Spring 2019 collection. The works on view highlight Sui’s creative process and influences that contribute to her signature aesthetic sensibility.Sui is one of New York City’s well-known fashion designers. She is known for creating contemporary original clothing that are inspired by in-depth research into vintage styles, cultural arcana, art history, graphic design, European and Asian decorative arts, and film, among others.She started working during the 1970s New York’s creative cultural underground and forged lasting relationships in the worlds of fashion, photography, art, music, and design. Sui is also one of the founding voices of the Save the Garment Center movement.The exhibition is arranged thematically is driven by Sui’s 13 design archetypes — Rock Star, Schoolgirl, Punk, Nomad, and Surfer, to name a few. These are influenced by several concepts including French interior designer and antiques dealer Madeleine Castaing, the London boutique Biba, pirates, pre-Raphaelite maidens, Yves Saint Laurent, and Minnie Mouse.Sui’s eclectic career and her creative processes are illuminated by the garments, sketches, mood boards, videos of runway presentations, and cultural ephemera on view.“A prolific storyteller, Anna weaves together popular and little-known visual references every season creating singular looks that are unmistakably Anna. Throughout the exhibition, you see evidence of her vast knowledge of music, movies, interior design, books, time periods, graphic design, art movements, fashion, and photography,” said Barbara Paris Gifford, Assistant Curator at MAD. “The World of Anna Sui” starts in the museum’s lobby, what invites the viewers is a to-scale installation of Dean “Chooch” Landry’s illustration of the original Anna Sui flagship store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. One encounters the world that the designer has created in the galleries. The milieu of Sui’s archetypes, runway fashion shows, and behind-the-scenes development of the accessories and accoutrement that complete these fashion shows.Illuminating Sui’s creative process are mood boards from her Fall 2019 “Poptimistic” collection, direct from the designer’s studio. Hallmark outfits from her collections are also part of the show from the “Backless Chaps” worn by Naomi Campbell in the Fall 1992 runway show to the “Silver Peruvian Ensemble” from Spring 1994 to one of the iconic “Babydoll Dresses” worn by Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington.The museum is also organizing a cinema series in collaboration with Sui’s niece, filmmaker and fashion photographer Jeannie Sui Wonders. It features films that have served as significant sources of inspiration for the Anna Sui collections represented in the galleries.The exhibition opens on September 12, 2019, and runs through February 23, 2020, at the Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Cir, New York, NY 10019, USA.For details, visit: https://www.blouinartinfo.com/galleryguide/museum-of-arts-and-design/overviewClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition. https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
