California: Designing Freedom

Art & Culture

This event has ended.

Still looking to get a design fix? Head to the Design Museum for the final few weeks of their California focus. From LSD to surfboards and iPhones, while California’s mid-century modernism is well documented, this is the first exhibition to examine its influence on global design. Picking up the story in the 1960s, the exhibition charts the journey from the counterculture to Silicon Valley’s tech culture, exploring those well-worn Californian themes of frontier and pioneers, but this time, through design. Be who you want, say what you want and make what you want? Delve into the world of the West Coast dream land.
