“SuperDesign” Film Screening & Discussion
Saturday, March 7, 2020:
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Radical: Italian Design 1965–1985, The Dennis Freedman Collection
Film Screening: SuperDesign
(Directed by Francesca Molteni, Italy, 2017, 62 minutes)
SuperDesign retraces the history and heritage of Italy’s Radical Design Movement through the perspectives of leading figures such as Franco Audrito, Andrea Branzi, Alessandro Mendini, and Gaetano Pesce. The movement emerged in the revolutionary 1960s, when the need for change spread throughout the Western world and pervaded all aspects of life. SuperDesign explores these Radical works with the architects and designers, accompanying them through their cities and listening to their revolutionary ideals.
After the screening, stay for a panel discussion with Franco Audrito, founder of Studio65 in Turin, Italy; Evan Snyderman, principal of R & Company in New York; and Cindi Strauss, the Sara and Bill Morgan Curator of Decorative Arts, Craft, and Design.
Drop in! Admission to this program is free. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Entry to the exhibition is free with general Museum admission.
