an AmDC retrospective

Sat, May 11–Wed, May 22

For more than four years, the American Design Club (AmDC) has curated a number of exhibitions designed to showcase the talents of both emerging and established designers. Each exhibition revolves around a theme developed by the AmDC, with the goal of inspiring designers to create new pieces they might otherwise not conceive. This process has yielded unexpected results, and many designs created for or exhibited in an AmDC show have later become successful products in their own right.

During NYC x Design, New York Cities’ first week-long celebration of design, highlights from each AmDC show will be on display at the Museum of Arts and design as a temporary exhibition within After the Museum: The Home Front 2013. From lighting and furniture to tabletop objects, these designs represent the talent and resourcefulness of the AmDC’s participants, as well as the range of approaches that reflect the diversity of the American design scene. In addition, oral historian Svetlana Kitto will be conducting recorded interviews with key group members to document the movement’s impact on the young designers’ careers.
