10 Dutch designers are currently exhibiting at Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York. Running through June 2014, the exhibition explores the impact of digital fabrication on contemporary design, art, and architecture. Why are there so many pioneering works of Dutch designers included in this exhibition? MAD's curator Ron Labaco knows the answer.
Most of the Dutch artists exhibiting at MAD are alumni of Design Academy Eindhoven, an interdisciplinary educational institute for art, architecture and design in the Netherlands. Traditionally, Eindhoven has been a city with a wealth of industry. Today it is a boundary-pushing and inventive region where technology, design and knowledge (TDK) are consciously and deliberately deployed. The world is changing rapidly, and Eindhoven is changing with it, acting as a magnet that attracts talented individuals, students, start-ups and international businesses to the city.
Also originally from Eindhoven, and on the cutting edge of arts and design, the Dutch 3D-printing marketplace and service Shapeways is partnering with MAD for the exhibition and will host 'OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON’. This is an educational and interactive space on the Museum's second floor where visitors will be able to experience 3D design and printing firsthand.
