  • Paola Antonelli

Wednesday 24th August, 2011

10:00am to 11:15am (CET)

Paola Antonelli is Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design of The Museum of Modern Art, where she has worked since 1994. Paola’s goal is to insistently promote design’s understanding, until its positive influence on the world is fully acknowledged and exploited.

She is currently working on several shows on contemporary design; on Design Bites, a book about foods from all over the world appreciated as examples of outstanding design. Her latest exhibition Talk to Me: Design and the Communication Between People and Objects is currently on view at the museum until November 7th, 2011.

At The Conference Paola will try to introduce the three topics in a presentation about the importance of design in media, society and in our lives.
