Exhibition Design for Matera European Capital of Culture

I-DEA is a project of Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 that explores the archives and collections of the Basilicata region from an artistic perspective.
Artists and designers with research-based practices were invited to guest curate five consecutive and overlapping exhibitions using the archive as a starting point. Drawing on seemingly disparate documents and materials, the artists delved into the archives and formulated their own readings in the form of temporary exhibitions.
The I-DEA project space evolved throughout 2019 in the form of exhibitions, performances, workshops, publications, and a growing online platform.
Martha Schwindling was the exhibition designer responsible for developing a modular display system and its various applications over the course of the five exhibitions.
