The Center for Design and Material Culture presents a new program series, “CDMC Conversations.” These conversations are online dialogues between artists, designers, and industry professionals, and the staff and students of the CDMC.

To kick-off this series, we presented Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist, curator, and educator Nirmal Raja. Through her work, Raja approaches her practice as a process of shifting and communicating sensations and ideas with varied materials and processes. Joined by CDMC’s Associate Academic Curator Stacy Motte, they discussed Nirmal’s approach, process, and her newest exhibition Feeble Barriers, a project focused on mask making and personal stories during the pandemic, at Grove Gallery in Milwaukee.

Event was free and open to the public thanks to the support of The Anonymous Fund.
