After Victor Papanek

2015 // Curatorial

After Victor Papanek: The Future Is Not What It Used To Be is a group exhibition at the Armory Center for the Arts that focuses on Victor Papanek’s pioneering influence on sustainable, socially responsible, human-centered design and the relevance of his oeuvre to current discourses in contemporary art, particularly in providing a critical framework for an object-oriented social practice. The project asserts Papanek’s legacy as a galvanizing force in contemporary visual art and social practice.
