Made for You: New Directions in Contemporary Design

Made for You: New Directions in Contemporary Design
Kieran Kinsella, Stools, 2014 – 2015
Kathy Ruttenberg, The Mysterious Lagomorph, 2015

In the 21st century, design has become personal. Bombarded by an endless array of mass-produced objects in big-box stores and on the Internet, people are increasingly attracted to the unique and custom made. Drawing on designers and makers in the Hudson Valley and environs, this exhibition considers the ways in which the contemporary design object is customized for the individual, from the one-of-a-kind objects made by craft techniques to the latest technological advances of 3D printing. The exhibition includes approximately 25 designers/makers and demonstrates a range of approaches to design.
