Design in Dialogue #25: Gaetano Pesce

June 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

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.

Wednesday June 10: Gaetano Pesce may well be the most influential living designer. Since the 1960s he has originated numerous strategies that are now pervasive in the discipline, including speculative design, mass customization, and figurative architecture. We’ll speak with the great provocateur about his long and fascinating career, and get his thoughts on the challenges of the present moment.

To join us 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.

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.
