This event has ended.

"Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary" is the inaugural exhibition at the Museum of Arts & Design when it opens in a new building at 2 Columbus Circle on September 27 2008. The exhibition features work by 50 international established and emerging artists from all five continents who create objects and installations comprised of ordinary and everyday manufactured articles, most originally made for another functional purpose. The exhibition surveys the rich artistic landscape of much contemporary art, in which hierarchies among art, craft, and design are disregarded. In addition, the exhibition examines the ways in which artists transform our world, respond to contemporary cultural paradigms, and comment on global consumerism.
