Ongoing Projects

M21D is hard at work on new exhibitions and programs. We're looking for individuals and organizations to collaborate on them with us. We'll continue to update this list of projects as new ones arise. If you don't see something that fits your specific focus, send us an email and outline of your proposal.    

Carbon-Negative Design

This exhibition will feature objects that can truly claim to sequester carbon in their production or via the completion of their life-cycles. An accompanying program with designers, local communities, and policy-makers will include discussions about how to make carbon-negative design a standard rather than a label.

Design of Dissent

This ongoing research project will present in exhibitions the best of design that has supported protest over the past 20 years, from posters and masks to strategies for organizing. It is inspired by current social justice movements, the 2005 publication and exhibition of the same name by Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilić, and the recent exhibition at the Museum of Design Atlanta. The topic takes on new significance following the events of 2020 and the urgency to expand and disseminate our collective playbook of protest.
