About this event

Anatomy of a Decade: Designing the 1980s  

October 3, 2020 – January 10, 2021
Gallery 241, McNeal Hall

Design eras often get packed into neatly defined decades. What visual narratives of the past do we become attuned to over time? Recent years have seen a redux of 1980s through popular culture movies and television shows, and the reemergence of styles such as high-waisted denim jeans and angular haircuts.  This exhibition uses objects from the Goldstein Museum of Design’s permanent collection to explore nuances of 1980s design, teasing out how designers leveraged nostalgia to both affect memory of former times and break with the past.
