MAKING HOME—SMITHSONIAN DESIGN TRIENNIAL
ON VIEW Fall 2024 THROUGH summer 2025
Making Home will be the seventh installment in the Design Triennial series, which was established in 2000 to address the most urgent topics of the time through a design lens. The exhibition explores the concept of home, bringing together wide-ranging perspectives on how design impacts and transforms lived experiences in the U.S., U.S. Territories, and Tribal Nations.
The exhibition is organized by Alexandra Cunningham Cameron, curator of contemporary design and Hintz Secretarial Scholar at Cooper Hewitt; Christina L. De León, associate curator of Latino design at Cooper Hewitt; and Michelle Joan Wilkinson, curator of architecture and design at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Making Home marks the first time curators from two Smithsonian museums will collaborate on this flagship exhibition series.
