In Conversation: What’s the purpose of design?

Taking UMMA’s new Design Gallery as a starting point, Katherine Brion, exhibition co-curator and 2012-2013 Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow, will explore the changing goals of design from the early 20th into the 21st century. The wide variety of forms and materials on display in the gallery are products of different (sometimes radically different) ideals. Brion will also discuss how the field of design—with its ties to architecture, engineering, mass manufacturing and marketing—offers an interesting perspective on art museums and curatorial practice.
