In Conversation: New Old: Designing for our Future Selves

Room 213 adjacent to the gallery, Pratt Manhattan, 144 West 14th St, Manhattan Campus
February 7, 2020 at 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

In Conversation: Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design, Royal College of Art with Pattie Moore, designer, and author of “Disguised a True Story”

“New Old” curator Jeremy Myerson will discuss design for older adults with Pattie Moore. Moore has been engaged with issues of aging since 1979, when as a 26-year-old industrial designer working at the Raymond Loewy studio, she embarked on a daring piece of social research taking to the streets of America, aged with make-up to look like an 85-year-old to discover for herself the realities of growing old.

A touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London, in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Trust. Sponsored by AXA PPP Healthcare with additional support from Versus Arthritis. NEW OLD is sponsored by The Achelis & Bodman Foundation at Pratt Manhattan Gallery.
