In the upcoming spring/summer season of the program Collecting Design: History, Collections, Highlights, I will be hosting experts, colleagues, and friends in unveiling and discovering the story of collecting modern and contemporary design. The only program of its kind, it has been taking place at the New York School of Interior Design, and is made possible by Cultured Magazine and Design Think Tank. Christian Larsen, Associate Curator, Modern Design and Decorative Arts, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will discuss mid-century Brazilian design, which is also the topic of his Ph.D. dissertation; Joshua Aibel from Moderne Gallery – on his passion and work with furniture by some of the seminal figures of the American Studio Movement; Nicholas Kilner – on rediscovering chapters and figures active in Italy during the postwar years; Hugues Magen – on connoisseurship in French mid-century design; James Zemaitis - on collectible mid-century Nordic design; Carole Hochman from Friedman Banda – on the gallery’s program of producing and exhibiting contemporary collectible design. Registration to the spring season of Collecting Design is open now.
