NC State College of Design professor Denise Gonzalez-Crisp and Parsons School of Design professor Susan Yelavich have curated a beautiful, textured show of design artifacts called Deep Surface opening at CAM this weekend. The show offers a window into today's international ornamentation, cultural context and commentary, through design objects in a massive collection featuring everything from toasters, to fashion, to dynamic animation work.
Design, more important than ever to the local and national economies, is exposed in a way never before seen in the triangle as objects vibrate between the every day and art pieces. Deep Surface will be internationally recognized as a show that offers new insights from two design scholars with major thought leadership around decoration.
Deep Surface opens Saturday September 24th at CAM Raleigh. A curatorial tour will be held from 12:15-1pm, free with $5 admission.
