Artistry and innovation are constantly being cultivated in New York City, and the creations are featured in shows, events, and exhibits throughout the year. One of the most important is NYC X Design, one of the world’s most comprehensive design showcases.
Self-dubbed as a citywide celebration of design, NYC X Design welcomes industry professionals, as well as other interested parties, to network and to collaborate while also pushing for progress in the design field as a whole. Architecture, digital and technological design, graphic design, and television film and media are all recognized during this exhibition.
Among the many events taking place during NYC X Design, there are a few that we’re especially excited for. This is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, is an event organized by the Museum of Modern Art intended to question, contextualize, and explore the radical expansion of design through the Internet. With The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley, attendees can see how the renowned architect’s enormous and dynamic portfolio has aged and changed over time, providing a meaningful meditation on design upkeep. Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television is an exhibit at the Jewish Museum where television’s early years are analyzed next to the influence of modernism and avant garde artwork.
With so many interesting showpieces slated for NYC X Design, May is poised to be a time of brilliant presentation and intellectual conversation throughout the city. For anybody who’s interested in participating, you can pitch your design-related event or feature to NYC X Design, and they may very well invite you to join the collective.
