Het Wilde Weten is very pleased to invite you to the upcoming event CRITICAL + COLLECTION 1, a one-night exhibit showcasing over 30 objects from the newly-launched web-store criticalplusdesign.com.

This event takes place Saturday September 28, from 18:00-21:00 at Het Wilde Weten.

From July-September 2013, Critical + had the opportunity to reside as Artist in Residence at Het Wilde Weten, developing projects which will be on view during the event.

Critical + is a collaborative formed in the Netherlands by jewelers Annika Pettersson, Adam Grinovich and product designer Charles Mathis. The group originated as a form of aggressive discourse revolving around fine art, design, and perceived limitations governing the creative field. Critical + is interested in nomadic urban living, its spirit grounded in the reality of living as outsiders in unfamiliar places, with no certain futures or concrete stability.

Collection 1 is driven by compulsion, desire, necessity and the need to create functional pieces that address new ways of living. A keen eye for selection and local sourcing are combined with personal articulation, combining the power of the ready-made with an expressionistic spirit.

Please join us and get a rare chance to view the objects in person and have a chat!
