ATOMIC NUMBER THIRTEEN:
ALUMINUM IN 20TH-CENTURY DESIGN

April 23, 2021 - April 17, 2022

New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA

When chemists first successfully extracted aluminum from the earth in the mid-19th century, the raw element was as precious as gold. Today we take this ubiquitous material for granted, though aluminum allows for nearly every facet of modern life through its use in architecture, industry, and flight. This exhibition, drawn from NOMA’s permanent collection, explores the changing role of aluminum in twentieth-century design.
