HIT HOT HAT LOFT ARTE CLUB VALDAGNO. TAH TOH TIH SPAZIO CALVI MILAN

EXHIBITION: HIT HOT HAT
8&A architetti with Group “ C’è tutto novembre per pensarci “.
“Learning how to design through a variety of different approaches quickly becomes the key concept of the group “C’è tutto novembre per pensarci ” during their first group-project.
They decide not to present architectural projects, but to draw their design experience into an artistic context.  The theme of the exhibition is the hat, but the authors don’t realize design objects to be used and consumed by people: the hat represent here  an object /pretext which provided an opportunity to investigate their design concept in complete freedom.” GIANNI ROMANO

GRUPPO “ C’È TUTTO NOVEMBRE PER PENSARCI”  1991-1998
Anna Barile and Antonio Ottoboni, on june 1991, thank to the great Corrado Levi and together with some other young architects, founded the group “C’è tutto novembre per pensarci ” to explore cultural territories in  between Art and Architecture.
From 1991 the group’s work included design, photography,  music and comics: contamination between various disciplines was the method to the project, and  theoretical “slidings” were  paths to the quality.
The group’s peculiarity has always been collective action, never minimizing differences while  enhancing each one’s singularity as important step to start from.
After the HIT HOT HAT exhibition in Valdagno,  and the TAH TOH TIH in Milan, the group realized the “DOPO ALBINI” book: a collection of avant-garde architectural projects; then  the group designed a surreal collection of  watches  for SWATCH, and created the Do-it Post-it exibithion at Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice using just thousands of post-it.
Then after that each member of the group had personal experiences abroad: New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Hamburg and got together for the last time in 1998 in Milan performing  DAM A TRA’, their last exhibition.
