MODERN IN THE PAST TENSE
Exhibition in New York School of Interior Design.
Postmodernidad o Retrofuturismo??
The exhibition opens with a panel discussion with “What Modern Was” curators Hanks and Eidelberg, legendary collector Mark McDonald and modernist interior designer Ali Tayar. “Modern in the Past Tense” opens 26 October 2011 and runs through 12 January 2012 at NYSID.
Remembering “Design 1935-1965: What Modern Was”, it was opened in 1991, the accompanying 424-page catalog startled the industry with its declaration that the Modern period was over, and should, from that point, be spoken about in the past tense.
