Never Normal is an exhibition that expresses the ever-changing viewpoint of the designer’s perspective on the built world. The future now seems inscrutable, provoking us to think of the possibilities and opportunities for change in human behaviors and our environment. Looking away from the conventional means of solving problems, the works in this exhibition seek to reexamine and reevaluate our personal relationships to our domestic landscape. Through craft or making, these designers are able to express value, preciousness, and care that offer intuitive moments of clarity on contemporary issues in response to the needs of a society in flux.
Presented in conjunction with Design Core Detroit - Detroit Month of Design, Never Normal seeks to honor Detroit’s history as the cradle of American design and to uphold the city as a platform for new experimental design. The exhibition continues from September 17th through December 12th with private viewing by appointment.
