Behind the Scenes Tour of Text Me with Exhibition Designer

Join Toast MODA for our January event, a behind the scenes tour of MODA's current exhibition, Text Me: How We Live in Language with Executive Director Laura Flusche and Exhibition Designer, Susan Sanders! 

For this exhibit visit, we will focus on the collaboration between MODA's exhibition designer and co-curator, podcaster, designer, and artist Debbie Millman. We will examine the problems that an exhibition designer must solve for, like bringing together the work of over 60 leading artists and designers together into one cohesive museum exhibition with a consistent message. 

More on Text Me: How We Live in Language:
The individual component of language—text—is the prime vehicle used to express the experiences of our existence—from minor moments of daily life to the grand nature of the human condition. Our ancestors as far back as the cave man have been using symbols to document and record experiences.

Today, the visualization of our personal stories is an integral and essential part of nearly every moment of life, and we use text in all of its forms to define reality, emotions and even time itself. We are now living in a world wherein the condition of our visual communication reflects the condition of our culture. Conceived and curated by designer, podcaster, and brand strategist Debbie Millman, this exhibition is an attempt to organize, express, translate and reflect both how we live in language and how language now defines our lives.
