“The Curated Object will become an important resource for collectors, designers, journalists, and enthusiasts from across the spectrum of design. At last, the design world will have its own clock.”-
ELLEN LUPTON, Cooper-Hewitt Curator, Design Journalist, Writer, Critic and Proprietor of DESIGN, WRITING, RESEARCH
HOW IT WORKS
Find an exhibition and GO!
We are a NON-PROFIT guide and educational resource
(a 501(c)(3)-pending organization). Use our listings to find DECORATIVE ARTS + DESIGN EXHIBITIONS by CITY, COUNTRY or OPENING DATE. We do not accept advertising. We are interested in research and analyses by design philosophers, curators, antiquaries, museologists and radical historians. Send a press release so we can create a complimentary museum exhibition listing. Contact: CuratedObject@Gmail.com
“The work of an intellectual is not to mould the political will of others; it is, through the analyses that he does in his own field, to re-examine evidence and assumptions, to shake up habitual ways of working and thinking, to dissipate conventional familiarities, to re-evaluate rules and institutions and to participate in the formation of a political will (where he has his role as citizen to play).”- Michel Foucault
Sometimes whispering and other times shouting, objects have their own time and cadence. The Curated Object is interested in the exhibition of objects and those who find our engagement with them compelling. Objects act out all the time and revolt against us. Listening carefully is our quest.
