After Memphis? Design in Europe since 1990Thursday, October 30th @ 6 pm, DeBoest Lecture Hall
Named for a Bob Dylan lyric, the Memphis design collective, known for its flamboyant approach to post-modernism, took Europe by storm in 1981. Since Memphis, Europe continues its design eminence. Join Penny Sparke, a professor of design history at Kingston University London, for a discussion on key individuals who have helped Europe maintain its distinctive role as global leader in the world of innovative object design over the last 25 years. Presented in part by the Design Arts Society with the support of the Myrtie Shumacker Lecture Fund.
