UM to host design conference
This conference looks great, but I'm feeling a bit weary from all the recent writing, so I'll just quote the press release: "The University of Minnesota will host 14 of the most celebrated design thinkers from the United States and Europe on April 27 and 28 for an international conference on the state of contemporary design discourse. In complementary sessions, the conference will focus on Minneapolis’ new public architecture and new curatorial directions at major international museums.

The conference, “Design and Its Publics: Curators, Critics, and Historians” (DAIP) brings together leading scholars, top critics, broadcasters and design practitioners with curators from some of the most influential museums in the United States, London and the Netherlands to address how public understanding of architecture and design is shaped by criticism, scholarship and curatorial practice."
