You’ve Got To Be MAD
Join the experimental design exhibit at the MAD Museum called Museum as Plinth: Take One/Leave One, an interactive exhibit exploring the role of museums in validating what is and what is not design. Over the course of the Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26), museum visitors are invited to take an object from the shelf and replace it with one of their own— simple ephemera from their pockets or a special piece that they brought with them.

As part of NYCxDesign, the students of the MFA in Products of Design at the School of Visual Arts present ALSO!, a series of interactions that explore how we experience new design. The work comes out of a 5-week class called Design Performance taught by Sinclair Smith, which explores design exhibition beyond the pedestal, focusing in on interaction, participation, and staging new behaviors.

“Through a roving set of mobile interventions—both cart-based and human-worn—visitors to the show participate in an unfolding narrative around celebration, sustainability, digital mediation, storytelling, and scale, each expanding the conversation around design beyond form, function, and materiality.”
