MAID 2013 show catalogue
This exhibition curated by Stephen Hayward for Central Saint Martins Window Galleries (27th March – 10th May 2013) places art school design in the tradition of the ‘philosophical toy’, a device that introduced 19th century audiences to new forms of knowledge via immersive, visceral experiences. A combination of MAID staff and graduates achieve a similar combination of enlightenment and enchantment by re-aligning the language of everyday things.
