Menschel Hall, Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
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. Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Architecture and Design; Director, Research & Development at the Museum of Modern Art 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.
