Through Sunday, November 1st: ‘Making Music Modern: Design for Ear and Eye’

    Date: 11/15/2014 - 11/01/2015

    Time: All Day

    Location: The Museum of Modern Art (11 W. 53rd St, Manhattan)

    Price: Included with museum admission, free from 4-8 pm on Fridays

    Making Music Modern gathers designs for auditoriums, instruments, and equipment for listening to music, along with posters, record sleeves, sheet music, and animation. The exhibition examines alternative music cultures of the early 20th century, the rise of radio during the interwar period, how design shaped the “cool” aesthetic of midcentury jazz and hi-fidelity culture, and its role in countercultural music scenes from pop to punk, and later 20th-century design explorations at the intersection of art, technology, and perception.
