Less Is a Bore: Postmodernism, Punk, and New Wave in MoMA’s Design Collection

Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

Architecture and Design Galleries, third floor

As American architect Robert Venturi put it, “Less is a bore!” Come and have your senses assaulted by the raw energy, stark images, bold colors, outrageous patterns, and loud music of postmodern design spanning 1960s pop, 1970s punk, and early 1980s new wave. Works on display include furniture and other designs for the home, graphic design, and music videos.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
