After the Museum: The Home Front 2013 at New York’s Museum of Arts & Design brings together new works by more than thirty designers and collaboratives from the US to examine the interplay between cultural institutions and the design community, and propose forward-looking approaches to the post-millennial museum. The exhibition encourages audiences to reconsider traditional notions surrounding the structure and role of a design museum through a series of installations, digital initiatives, lectures, and publications.
Interdisciplinary in scope, works will include Project Projects’ experimentation with prototyping art collections from major museums to democratize the acquisition of masterworks; The LAB at Rockwell Group’s software toolkit for choreographing interactive spaces; and Aaron Anderson and Eric Timothy Carlson’s installation of the museum director’s office chair in the gallery space. Each element of After the Museum examines the dynamic relationship between design and the museum experience, highlighting its influence on product development, information sharing, and interactive programming.
On view through this Sunday, June 9.
