In Conversation: Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design Royal College of Art with Pattie Moore, designer, and author of “Disguised a True Story”
February 7, 5 – 7 PM

“New Old” curator Jeremy Myerson will discuss design for older adults with Pattie Moore. Moore has been engaged with issues of aging since 1979, when as a 26-year-old industrial designer working at the Raymond Loewy studio, she embarked on a daring piece of social research taking to the streets of America, aged with make-up to look like an 85-year-old to discover for herself the realities of growing old.
NEW OLD is a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London, in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Trust. NEW OLD is sponsored by The Achelis & Bodman Foundation at Pratt Manhattan Gallery.
