U.S.A. - LOUISVILLE-KENTUCKY - Modern in the Making: Design 1900-2000

Over the past few years, the Speed’s collection of twentieth-century design—furniture, ceramics, silver, and other materials—has grown rapidly through both gifts and purchases. These objects, many on view for the first time, will be featured in a new installation, Modern in the Making: Design 1900-2000. From French Art Deco to the Bauhaus to mid-century Modern to Post-Modern, the installation will explore the diverse definitions of “modern” that marked the twentieth-century. Did "modern" mean French opulence or German austerity? How did new materials like plastics define “modern”? Come and see modern living in the making!
