Making Up Design

Hosted by

An upcoming show at Art Center’s South Campus called Made Up: Design's Fictions will feature designers who "forecast, hypothesize, muse, skylark, role-play, put-on-airs, freak-out or otherwise fake-it" to produce work that elicits a response or brings about change in the real world. Frances asks Art Center professor and curator Tim Durfee to give us a (preferably not made-up) definition of what that means. The show opens January 29 and runs through March 20, and will be open Saturday and Sundays 1-5pm. More details and design events can be found on our DnA calendar.
