Join the us and the Design Museum Everywhere at BSA Space for a tour of Now What?! Advocacy, Activism & Alliances in American Architecture Since 1968 and discussion on exhibition-making, experiential graphic design, and activism in architecture. The design conversation will be led by Jessie Rubenstein, exhibition designer, and the exhibition tour will be led by Ilana Curtis, exhibitions manager and Masters Candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Now What?! blends design practice with academy as a strategy for a socially based practice, and the design development of the exhibition followed suit. The design team, through an independent study with students at Boston University School of Visual Arts conceived of new participatory and engagement strategies within the existing exhibition framework. Ilana led a J-Term course at Harvard GSD to research and add Boston-specific content to Now What?! in a special section called “Boston Changemakers.” Visitors have ample opportunities to add their own voices to the exhibition.

This event is free for students, BSA & Design Museum Everywhere members and open to the public with $10 tickets. Registration is required for all attendees.

This event is hosted in partnership with Design Museum Everywhere (DME)
