Friedman Benda presents Design in Dialogue Episode 18: Adam Silverman

DESIGN IN DIALOGUE – Episode 18 Adam Silverman

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.

Today at 11:00am EDT, 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.

To join via computer, please RSVP here.

Friday, May 22nd: Aric Chen, globetrotting citizen of the design world, will talk about his wide-ranging projects including building the collection at the Hong Kong museum M+, and his role as curatorial director of Design Miami/. RSVP here.

Wednesday, May 27: Joris Laarman is at the forefront of design thinking and making, one of the world’s great innovators. We will explore his many technological, aesthetic and conceptual breakthroughs, always located at the intersection of past, present and future.

Friday, May 29: 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.

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.
