MAD’s After the Museum

Read Article
A new exhibition at the Museum of Arts & Design is best described as an ecosystem, says MAD's Manager of Public Programs and co-curator, Jake Yuzna. After the Museum: The Home Front 2013 brings together the American design community to explore the future of the museum as it relates to designers and the public as a whole. With ample opportunity for museum attendees to interact with the installations (many of which are in constant flux themselves), the ongoing processes and results contained within the ever-changing exhibition hope to shed light on what the museum of the future might entail.

  Museum as Manufacturer (shown at right) allows the community to participate in the exhibit by taking on the role of designer. Public submitted projects are brought to life in the gallery via a 3-D printer. The objects are then collected and displayed in the exhibit. Keetra Dean Dixon and JK Keller, 2013.

  In the foreground, museum visitors converse at a picnic table constructed by resident artists Aaron Anderson and Eric Timothy Carlson to form a point of communication in the gallery setting. The duo used the museum’s studios to create a new material, which they then applied to the table. In the background is On Display, a plethora of printed ephemera used to create talking points for the public. Through conversation, the display of the materials is covered, revealed, and changed to show the course of the dialogue about the museum and its role in design. On Display  was created by Superscript and designers HAO and Neil Donnelly. Photo by Ed Watkins.
