There's little question where I'll be March 6th and 7th. In conjunction with the exhibition European Design Since 1985: Shaping the New Century, the IMA will host a two day design symposium with some of the biggest names in the business. Keynote speakers Michele De Lucchi and Jurgen Bey will anchor four different sessions examining four different aspects of the design field: Designing, Making, Judging and Marketing.
Each session is lead by a different moderator and has four speakers who look at design from two different perspectives; design as industry (Modernism) or design as art (Postmodernism). A full list of presenters is featured on the symposium's home page and from there you can download the full agenda.
Two day passes are available for $100 or you can purchase a one day ticket for $50. Students receive and 50% discount.
Student Bonus - There is a special "Student Strand" of the symposium which allows undergraduate and graduate students four additional sessions with the speakers in a more intimate setting for a more indepth look at the issues pertinent to them.
To brush up on some modernism/postmodernism topics and for some additional background before the symposium I might suggest attending the free iMOCA 201 which will be held the next four Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30.
