The South: home to numerous design talents, both emerging and seasoned. The Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) thinks it’s time to prove it. This fall, the museum presents The South’s Next Wave: Design Challenge: part exhibition, part competition. The Next Wave exhibition pairs designer of interior spaces with object designers. Together, they have created innovative vignettes throughout the museum.
Curators David Goodrowe and Tim Hobby, co-founders of Aesthetic Identity Design Firm,
Goodrowe I Hobby, have directed the work of set/interiro designers and of object designers in fields from furniture to fashion. These designers exemplify the myriad new directions of the Southern aesthetic. “We envision each vignette as a distinct environment with many layers, “ says curator Hobby.
Each vignette is technologically enabled with the Skovr app to allow viewers to access facts and video about the designers and the vignette installation process, enhancing the art experience in the gallery and at home via mobile and desktop devices.
During the run of the exhibition, MODA visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite vignette. Winning earns the designer more than bragging rights – there is a cash prize! Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, teachers and military, and $5 for students and children over 5. Members are free
