Friedman Benda, New York, NY Friedman Benda is pleased to present An Accelerated Culture, curated by Libby Sellers and Brent Dzekciorius. The exhibition, which brings together a selection of the most progressive contemporary designers from the so-called Generation X, is an investigation into any shared ideologies and beliefs that emerge from such a disparate cohort. As Sellers states, while any characterization of a generation will be filled with disclaimers, th se practitioners went on to challenge the status quo by questioning everything, the design industry included, in order to redefine what a design practice could encompass and the territories where design can tread. Using the generational grouping as a way into the varied views and expressions, An Accelerated Culture, highlights how the major cultural, economic and societal shifts that occurred during the decades before and after the turn of the millennium influenced and informed design practice today. An Accelerated Culture includes seminal works from practices established at the turn of the millennium, One Man Chair from Evolution Collection from Nacho Carbonell will be included in the show.
