Oh MoMA Mia!
THE MUSEUM OF Modern Art in New York City is closing its architecture and design galleries, along with the other “medium specific” galleries including photography and drawing.
Instead of living in a dedicated space, some of the works from all four mediums will be interspersed throughout the museum, as additions to preexisting (and future) installations.

What is sad is that – if design is everywhere as Paola Antonelli states – art is not everywhere.
The very reason there are Art Museums is because Art is not mainstream and same explicitly applies to Design. But it seems latter can be boot out.. huh merged.
If design was everywhere – ugly would have disapeared for good.. No?
MOMA had acquired a reputation for supporting design. It will now return to it’s touristy attraction level.
Emporium new imperium.
The concept detailed.
The visual inspiration came from the rather ugly four-color ink-jet printing, flat photography and amateur typography found across small shops, street vendors and subway ads.
Is the pigeon New York City’s unofficial mascot?(!?!?) I seems so.
