Girard: Culture x Design symposium
October 18-19, 2019

Museum of International Folk Art

The Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) is home to one of few remaining examples of Girard’s designed environments, the exhibition Multiple Visions: A Common Bond, which Girard created and installed in 1982 from his 106,000-object folk art collection. Here, modern design and folk art converge. By inviting contributors to explore Girard through multiple disciplines—design, art history, folklore, anthropology, and museology—this symposium offers previously unexplored perspectives on Girard and insists on a more complex interpretation of his role in both worlds.

In conjunction with the exhibition Alexander Girard: A Designer’s Universe, organized by Vitra Design Museum, on view at MOIFA through October 27
