Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 6-7 — Shaping the New Century: A Two-Day International Design Symposium

This is a major deal. An international symposium on recent European industrial and decorative design with a special strand for graduate and undergraduate design students.

When: Friday March 6 and Saturday March 7
Where: Indianapolis Museum of Art

Join designers, critics, scholars, manufacturers, dealers and students for a lively examination of the present and future of European decorative and industrial design in a program conceived by R. Craig Miller, the IMA Curator of Design Arts. Explore the aesthetic and conceptual ideas that have transcended national boundaries from 1985 onward, forging the international design scene we experience today. Meet a variety of leading figures in European design from multiple generations and be among the first in the world to see the exhibition European Design Since 1985: Shaping the New Century. The evolution of contemporary design will be discussed and examined in four sessions focusing on creating, manufacturing, judging, and marketing design.

The exhibition and symposium present a new lens through which to view the design scene from the late twentieth century to the present. Both the exhibition and the symposium promise to redefine two major movements—Modernism and Postmodernism—which have largely shaped European design during the last two decades.
