Transforming the physical and contextual environment of the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC into a focal point for the reconsideration of cultural production, the museum-wide project After the Museum utilized the institution as a platform for launching new, radical and unorthodox proposals for contemporary art and design museums in the 21st century.
Gathering a variety of unique American voices in the fields of art and design, After the Museum explored the effects and possibilities that have come to light after the rise of the contemporary art and design museum.
As artists, designers, and corporations have increasingly begun to stage exhibitions, lectures, and workshops modeled from the role of museums in the 20th century, current museum forms are increasingly called into question.
Reacting to this new cultural reality, After the Museum staged and presented a series of ore 55 commissioned installations, programs, publications, and digital tools that reveal the largely hidden research component of the design practice, while examining cultural institution's role in the shaping of design and culture past, present, and future.
