Suvi Saloniemi, Chief Curator at Design Museum Helsinki, is an inspirational innovator who often stages encounters between design and other art forms, such as music and contemporary art. She joined us to discuss the new architecture and design museum for Helsinki, currently in development, as well as her thoughts on curatorial response to the events of 2020, and her institution’s innovative Open Call series – a tool for transdisciplinary curating, which positions the museum as a critical platform.

Inaugurated on April 1, 2020, Design in Dialogue is a series of online interviews hosted alternately by curator and historian Glenn Adamson and designer Stephen Burks. Conversations are held on Zoom every Wednesdays for 1 hour, beginning at 11am Eastern Time, including a participatory Q&A. Please join leading voices from the field — designers, makers, critics, and curators — as they discuss their work and ideas.
