Friedman Benda continues Design in Dialogue, a series of online interviews hosted by curator and historian Glenn Adamson. Join leading voices from the field—designers, makers, critics, and curators—as they discuss their work and ideas. Conversations are held on Zoom for 45 minutes + 15 minutes participatory Q&A, beginning at 11am Eastern Standard Time.

Friday May 29th: Cindi Strauss, Curator for Modern and Contemporary Decorative Arts and Design at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will talk about her role in building the museum’s world-class design collection, which will be featured in a new suite of galleries currently in development. To join us via computer please RSVP here.

Please register in advance. Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation link to attend the event. Please join the discussion by 11:15am.

To dial in via phone you can find your local number here. 

For the duration of the present coronavirus lockdown—Design in Dialogue will convene three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

More guests to come as we are currently building a program that will hopefully be as engaging to the audience as it is exciting for us. Post quarantine the gallery will continue the Design in Dialogue platform. We will post updates for this series on Instagram @friedman_benda. Join us and help keep the design conversation going.
