Paola Antonelli


Paola Antonelli is the Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture & Design of The Museum of Modern Art, where she has worked since 1994. Through her exhibitions --among them Design and the Elastic Mind in 2008 –- teachings and writing, Paola strives to promote a deeper understanding of design’s transformative and constructive influence on the world. She is very proud of a recent acquisition into MoMA’s Collection: the @ sign. She is working on several exhibition ideas -- including the upcoming Talk to Me -- and on the book Design Bites, about basic foods taken as examples of outstanding design.
