On view during NeoCon, North America’s largest design exposition, ATTACHMENTS features 19 works by graduating design students in the Master of Fine Arts in Designed Objects; Master of Design in Designed Objects; Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment; Master of Architecture with an Emphasis in Interior Architecture; and Master of Architecture programs.

It celebrates single components as well as the bonds between them. Featured works seek connections within personal and public environments through collaborative experience, collective involvement, and physical and emotional attachment to objects as they represent histories or map behaviors.

The exhibition is curated and designed by faculty members Odile Compagnon and Ania Jaworska, with graduate assistant Jessica Moss (MA 2015). Reinforcing the concept of exchange, the exhibition layout allows for conversations between disciplines, each allotted to a specific area but linked together within a promenade, which is punctuated by larger installations.

Featuring designers: Ceyda Akosman, Kathie Chung, Tim Fates, Steve Jae Seok Kwak, Youngeun Kwun, Hao Liu, Berthold Marckwardt, Joshua McVey, Kristen Moreau, Jed Morganstein, Fei Nie, Carlos Ortega, Zachary Pino, Christopher Smith, Lindsey Whittle, Dante Wilkins, Tyler Willis, Ah Ron Won, and Man Yuan.

Also on view are installations from the SAIC courses whatnot, Thing Lab, and Advanced Shape and Theory and the GRFY Studio course Publi©ity.
