The Design Community that Defines New York City


A biennial at New York's MAD Museum, open through October 12, 2014, explores the rich design community of New York City—a group whose creations set the tone of the ever-shifting city. "It’s expensive to have space to produce and make one’s work in New York City," says curator Jake Yuzna. "Those who choose to come to NYC, and/or stay in NYC, fight against that tide—they strive to change the cultural landscape of the city, and through their adaptive practices, are doing it." Click through the slideshow for a look at some of the pieces on view.
