Modern Times: Designing for a New Century
Cheryl Buckley, Professor of Design History, Northumbria University, Newcastle
From the curving lines of Thonet bentwood furniture and delicate Lalique glass to sumptuous jacquard woven textiles and Japanese-influenced graphics, the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries produced extraordinarily beautiful objects. Professor Cheryl Buckley, Professor Paul Stirton (Bard Graduate Center) and Dr. Regina Blaszczyk (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia) will tell the story of the turn of the twentieth century - a time of shifting social and political mores- through a range of important design objects from Cooper-Hewitt's collection.


The Enid and Lester Morse Historic Design Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Lester S. Morse, Jr.
