Curated by C2, curatorsquared, MetaModern opens tonight at the University of Illinois' Krannert Art Museum. The exhibition features works that question the status of once radical, now iconic, mid-century furnishings. R+L's aweless use of sustainable, insubstantial corrugated platforms as substitutes for museum-grade pedestals seeks to support this line of inquiry. MetaModern is open at KAM through March 28.

StereoType: New Directions In Typography opens tonight at the Boston Society of Architects. The Rice+Lipka designed exhibition compiles a selection of designers and artists from around the world who are exploring opportunities at the intersection of technology and design, expanding the boundaries of traditional typography and integrating elements from the fields of animation, craft, performance, nanoscience, and graffiti into their work.
The exhibition, curated by C2, runs through May 25th, after which it will travel to venues across the United States throughout 2016.
Astrid Lipka and Lyn Rice were honored last Friday evening with the 2014 AIA New York State Award of Excellence for the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), designed in collaboration with James Corner Field Operations.
