The Robot Exhibit: History, Fantasy, and Reality (1984) at MAD (then the American Craft Museum) was one of the first comprehensive surveys of the history of robots, cyborgs, automatons, and androids. A visionary exhibit that attracted a record number of visitors, MAD presented robots as a multidisciplinary phenomenon, a confluence of craft and science. But beyond the myth of the robot, here were the roots of a revolution -- automatization, new production methods, and even 3D printing and rapid prototyping -- that would take the design world by storm in the following twenty years. How can exhibitions forecast future trends in design, from concepts to manufacturing, funding and consuming? Superscript's programmatic counterpoint to their project On Display brings together the public with voices in the design and architecture world to comment on these topics, and thus activate free posters displayed in the exhibition space of After the Museum.

Venue Description: Open Tues.-Sun., 11am-6pm (Thurs. & Fri. until 9pm). $15; $12, students/seniors. Pay what you wish Thurs., 6-9pm.
