poster for "Commerce + Curation: Past" Art Talk

This event has ended.

In the early days of exhibiting design in museums, the lines between shopping and curating were blurred. Manufacturers often sponsored the shows, and they might travel to trade shows or department stores after being shown in museums. Among the first MoMA design shows was "Useful Objects Under $5," making the connection between price and taste explicit. This panel will look at three early design exhibition programs: "Useful Objects and Good Design at MoMA," the "Everyday Art Gallery at the Walker Art Center," and "An Exhibition for Modern Living" at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
