The Talks @ ICDF: Store Stories – Exploring the History and Design of Retail
May 14, 2022 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The 19th-century department store and its successor, the modern mall, have continually evolved to attract and keep consumer attention for decades. Join us as critic Alexandra Lange and Cooper Hewitt curator Emily Orr examine design’s leading role in the development and cultural impact of some of America’s most impressive shopping complexes. Sharing stories from their recent books on retail, Lange and Orr will highlight how aspects from architecture and display to urban planning and community building have shaped our shopping experiences.
This year ICDF is introducing The Talks @ ICDF, a platform for expert panelists to discuss the interaction of design and art, fashion, planning, disaster recovery, rebuilding, and more. The Talks will host experts from a diverse range of institutions and organizations like Cooper Hewitt, Central Saint Martin, NYC Jewelry Week, People in Places, and more.
