Call for Abstracts and Panels — Displaying Design: History, Criticism, and Curatorial Discourses

Design exhibitions and exhibition design have a central place in the history of design, providing us with significant milestones for understanding how designers, schools, companies, and organisations have publicly displayed work, values, and ideas. In parallel to the exercise of exhibiting design, either by following the vision of a curator or the programme of a museum or gallery, we have encountered different ways of collecting, archiving and musealizing design and its history.

Displaying Design: History, Criticism, and Curatorial Discourses

We invite authors to send creative and unpublished proposals that surprise, relearn and rethink design history and design stories.

This exhibition will showcase the works of some of the most talented and innovative digital artists of our time. The event will take place in the city of Curitiba, Brazil, in November 2023. It is not necessary for artists to be present in person. By simply submitting a digital representation of their work, artists can still participate and have their artwork displayed in the exhibition. The organizers of the event understand the difficulties of traveling, and therefore, attendance at the event is entirely optional.
