DESIGN BY TIME / WOOSTER ART MUSEUM
From September 13 – November 8 2019
The traveling exhibition “Design By Time” featuring several Dutch designers travels to Wooster, OH after its run at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery and the Knoxville Museum of Art. The exhibition shows work from 22 international designers portraying time and its dynamic effects on fashion, furniture, textiles, vessels, and more. The exhibition will be on view at the College of Wooster Art Museum from September 13 – November 8.
Representing an international field, the designers in the exhibition go beyond the conventional intention of design—to give functional objects a visually arresting reality. Their analytic, formal processes are partnered with natural phenomena, chemical, and physical forces, while time-based acts such as performance and drawing are magnified to serve as collaborators in the design.
