'Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture' is an exhibition that has been commissioned by New York-based gallery Friedman Benda to highlight creatives who have been born between the 1960s and the 1980s.
The event is a thorough look into the design tendencies of "[a generation] that defied definition." The exhibit spotlights the work by many recognizable names — from Heatherwick Studio and Nendo to Paul Cocksedge and Matali Crasset. The fact that the artifacts are unified through temporal similarity is also a keen characteristic that captures the attention of the curious observer. Thus, 'Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture' becomes an exhibit builds a narrative that is to be decoded by the audience member who is connecting the dots.
