Episode 10: Paola Antonelli of MoMA – Design Brings Art Into Everyday Life

Welcome to 12 to Watch in 2012, a new web series profiling some of New York’s top minds doing innovative things with technology and design.

Meet Paola Antonelli, the Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. In recent years, the MoMA has expanded its definition of Modern Art to add many different objects, gadgets, designs, and ideas integral to technology to its permanent collection – items like early Apple computers and concepts such as the “@” symbol.


  1. Its a new generation lots of new technology arises some people always a new gadget  which is the latest but all of a sudden another gadget will exist.

  2. Modern art is anything related to computers, or Apple products and logos :)
    Seriously though, I think this is a great decision to acknowledge technology as modern art. Just like technology, art will always change and evolve into something bigger and better.
