What makes a work modern? Join us in a discussion of the key role that textiles played in the development of the language of modern design. Held in conjunction with the exhibition How Should We Live? Propositions for the Modern Interior, this session investigates modern textiles in terms of their form and function, and in relation to traditional domestic home furnishings.

This session is led by Marianne Eggler.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
