Rossana Orlandi curates “In Good Company 3” by Fernando Mastrangelo, a Brooklyn-based, contemporary artist specializing in sculpture, furniture, architecture and interior design. The title “!?” expresses the exciting and puzzling question of what is Collectible Design.

Fernando Mastrangelo is holding the third annual In Good Company, art and design exhibition-open call for any American-based artist or designer. It is an annual group exhibition that honours the spirit of creativity by providing a platform for emerging artists and designers to exhibit their work without commercial or creative restraint.

To help curate this year’s exhibition, Mastrangelo has enlisted Rossana Orlandi, a Milan-based art figure known for her eye for finding and celebrating emerging talent. The duo has narrowed the submissions down to 15 names, one of which will win the Emerging Designer of the Year award and $5,000 USD.

“Furniture is no longer solely, or even primarily, a medium of function.” Mastrangelo says “It’s starting to become more and more a medium for artistic expression for the sake of artistic expression.”

The artists are Alanis McNier, Andy & Dave, Arcana, Bailey Fontaine, Elyse Graham, Gregory Beson, Ian Felton, Marco Piscitelli, Nicholas Missel, Nicholas Tilma, Ragna Ragnarsdottir, Soren Ferguson, studiovoll, Winston Cuevas, and Zac Hacmon.

The exhibition opens with a party today September 13th at 6 pm.
