Studio Drift was one of 200 designers that responded and submitted innovative projects to the open call for this year's Municipal Acquisitions. This year focuses on contemporary design. It is a tradition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam to stage a major bi-annual survey spotlighting the latest innovations within a particular art discipline.
A jury selected 26 participants, whose work will be featured in the large-scale group exhibition Dream Out Loud that opens on 26 August. Director of the Stedelijk Museum, Beatrix Ruf will announce which works be purchased for the permanent collection later this autumn.
The selected artists and designers taking part are truly dreaming out loud, striving to create a better world as a way of retaliating against cynicism and apathy. They embrace the demands we’re facing today with a playful inventiveness.
