2023-24: Making, Remaking, Repair

For the 2023-24 exhibition season, the Center for Design and Material Culture is delighted to present a range of exhibitions and programs surrounding the theme “Making, Remaking, Repair.” Through five engaging exhibitions in the Ruth Davis Design Gallery and Lynn Mecklenburg Textile Gallery, these projects will explore contemporary and historic American and global craft making, remaking historic textiles from fiber to form, and design thinking strategies for re-interpreting objects in the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. Students from the Design Studies program will also share work from their coursework in two season finale exhibitions, including the thesis work of three MFA students. We look forward to you learning and engaging with us throughout the year.
