Belgian 3D Printing Pioneers, Materialise, Honored with a Visionary! Award by the Museum of Art and Design in New York
The Museum of Art and Design chose Wilfried Vancraen as one of this year's honorees due to the more than twenty years that Materialise has been working with designers and scientists to help expand design, manufacturing, and biomedical research into new frontiers, while remaining committed to artistic creativity, sustainability and the improvement of people's lives. The award was also granted on the occasion of Materialise's inclusion in MAD's newest exhibition, Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital (16/10/2013 - 6/7/2014). Included in the exhibition are some of the most compelling creations from the past decade ranging from sculpture and furniture to fashion and transport - many of which were produced through 3D Printing at Materialise.
Also receiving a Visionaries! Award this year were internationally-renowned artist Frank Stella, Rick Kinsel, Executive Director of the Vilcek Foundation, and jewelry designer and business leaders David and Sybil Yurman. As leaders in their fields, these individuals exemplify the Museum's mission to explore contemporary creativity across all media.
About Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital
Through Out of Hand, MAD aims to explore a monumental transition in the way human beings understand creation, from the earliest objects conceived and produced by individual makers through the tools of technological innovation. Today's digital fabrication methods, such as 3D printing, give individual artists, architects, and designers the ability to go beyond the traditional boundaries of production, often resulting in objects that may otherwise be impossible to realize. Artists, architects and designers who have collaborated with Materialise for pieces in the exhibition include Bathsheba Grossman, Naim Josefi, Dror Benshetrit, Wertel Oberfel, Aranda\Lasch, Softkill Design, Stephen Jones, Jan Habraken and last, but certainly not least, fellow Visionaries! Award honoree, Frank Stella.
