Join us for a conversation with former Fallingwater intern Gabrielle Roth about the integral role Edgar Kaufmann jr. played in the Museum of Modern Art's Good Design exhibition series.
Gabrielle will highlight findings from her summer internship project, providing insights into Edgar Kaufmann jr.’s curation of objects for the Good Design program and his relationships with a diverse group of pivotal mid-century designers.
Objects exhibited as part of the Good Design series can also be found at Fallingwater and Gabrielle will discuss how Good Design influenced the house’s iconic décor.
Gabrielle Roth is a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin, completing her Masters of Science degree in Information Studies. She holds an MFA and BFA from Rutgers University and Cal State Long Beach, respectively.
In the summer of 2020 as the Judy Cheteyan Collections Intern at Fallingwater, Gabrielle catalogued and researched the designers and manufacturers of the Museum of Modern Art’s Good Design exhibitions, curated by Edgar Kaufmann jr. and held from 1950 to 1955.
