NYC Makers: The MAD BiennialMuseum of Arts & Design
NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial is the first exhibition organized under the leadership of the MAD Director Glenn Adamson. Exemplifying the Museum’s ongoing commitment to craftsmanship across all creative fields, the exhibition provides a platform not only for makers who typically display their work in a museum setting, but also those who work behind the scenes.
The catalogue, edited by Jake Yuzna, Director of Public Programs and curator of the exhibition was designed by NYC-based studio Other Means. It takes its form from “process books” which document and make transparent the development of the Biennial and the work of the participating makers.
From stone masons to set designers, instrument makers to media-art collectives, NYC Makers reveals the contributions of 21st-century makers to contemporary society and presents a sweeping cross-section of the cultural production occurring within a single city. The catalogue showcases the work of approximately 100 highly skilled artists, artisans and designers who apply an outstanding level of workmanship to the creation of objects or environments that shape our everyday lives.
