Friedman Benda announces 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, three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

On WEDNESDAY MAY 13TH: JEANNE GREENBERG ROHATYN, founder and owner of the gallery Salon94, will share stories and insights about her progressive approach—which moves with unique fluidity across the disciplines of art and design—and the challenges and opportunities of the present moment. RSVP here


FRIDAY MAY 15TH: DARRIN ALFRED (DENVER ART MUSEUM), MONICA OBNISKI (HIGH MUSEUM OF ART), and BOBBYE TIGERMAN (LACMA) will join us for a conversation about curatorial collaboration, focusing on the exhibitions Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America and Scandinavian Design and the United States, 1890-1980. RSVP here

MONDAY MAY 18TH: ADAM SILVERMAN, a ceramic artist whose work marries architectonic structure to mercurial surfaces, will offer insights into his new project Common Ground: which explores how deeply-considered objects can serve to bind people together. RSVP here
