Returning for its third season, Museum of Arts and Design's annual design program The Home Front: American Design Now expands, for the very first time into a physical exhibition, After the Museum.
Featuring a diverse group of unique design voices-more than 30 designers and collaboratives-from throughout New York City, After the Museum transforms MAD's physical environment into a focal point for the design community to question and examine a museum's role in shaping design's past, present, and future.
After the Museum will stage and present a series of installations and more than 40 public programs-master classes, lectures, and special projects-that examine the full breath of the oscillating relationship between designers and cultural institutions.
The 2nd Floor Gallery will be a dynamic space, enlivened by ongoing installations by more than a dozen design voices from established architectural practices such as The LAB at Rockwell Group to emerging and experimental graphic design studios, such as REPLY.
Programs will be presented there as well-in a modular programming and educational space designed by Snarkitecture, which debuted at Design Miami in 2012.
It will host a variety of programs created by the often-underrepresented figures behind research and non-object-based design practices.
