March 8–June 21, 2009
Organized by the IMA, this exhibition redefines two recent major movements—Modernism and Postmodernism—which have not only shaped design in Europe but have also had a profound impact worldwide. View 250 works of furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork and more, created by some of the most influential artists of our time. The works include everyday, mass-produced objects with exceptional artistic merit (including some recognizable name-brand items), and experimental and conceptual product designs that blur the lines between design, art and craft. The project has been organized in cooperation with the Denver Art Museum and Kingston University, London. The exhibition is made possible by the Mondriaan Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
The exhibition opens with a two-day symposium examining European decorative and industrial design on March 6 and 7. Featured speakers include Alberto Alessi, Jurgen Bey, Michele De Lucchi and other international leaders in design.
