Curator Speed Round: 10 Objects/

Through their collections, museums preserve, communicate, revise, and expand the narratives that give meaning to design and objects. In this lively new format, six leading curators from internationally renowned museums present, in rapid-fire succession, ten objects in thirty seconds each, representing both recent and hoped-for acquisitions. This will be followed by a discussion about the evolving nature of museum collecting, new perspectives on design and design history, and the opportunities and challenges facing museums today.
