2015 SXSW Interactive Friday Keynote Photo by Robin Holland

A world-renowned thinker in the impact of design on every day life, Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture & Design and Director of Research & Development at MoMA in New York City will serve as the Friday, March 13 Keynote at SXSW Interactive 2015.

Antonelli’s work investigates design’s influence on everyday experience. By including overlooked and unexpected objects and practices, and combining design, architecture, art, science and technology we feel she speaks to the large design community that attends our Austin event.

Outside of her role as Senior Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, Antonelli was appointed director of a new Research and Development initiative in 2012. An energetic and generous cultural thinker who is currently working on a project that considers the manifestations of violence in contemporary society through the lens of design, and a series of experiments on the intersection of physical and digital in museums and curatorial practice, Antonelli is a true interdisciplinary.

The 2015 SXSW Interactive Festival includes one Keynote per day for all five days of the event. Keynotes for Saturday, March 14; Sunday, March 15; Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17 will be announced in the coming weeks so stay tuned to our website or sign up to receive our weekly newsletter.

Register now so that you can attend these exciting Keynote presentations at the 2015 event.
