"Broken Nature" and Other Design Exhibitions for the Real World


Tuesday, November 5, 2019, 5:30pm


Menschel Hall, Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy St., Cambridge

Join the Harvard Art Museums for a Curatorial Innovations Lecture with Paola Antonelli Senior Curator, Architecture and Design; Director, Research & Development at The Museum of Modern Art.

The XXII Triennale di Milano, Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, highlighted the concept of restorative design, plotting its role in surveying our species’ bonds with the complex systems in the world, and in designing reparations when necessary, through objects, concepts, and new systems. Antonelli will take stock of the experience, casting the exhibition against the turbulent geopolitical background of the past year, describing which among its ambitions were met, and which were not.
