Curatorial Statement

Last year, we launched Physical Education, a series of exhibitions and projects celebrating explorative design. The series highlights the value we place on a diversity of perspective, emphasis on process over product, and the interdisciplinary nature of creation. Our first iteration of the series was a design exhibition entitled “Physical Education: Parallax 101,” which we showed at the Studio Guapo space in Manhattan in 2021.

This May, we had the pleasure of opening “Physical Education II: Design For All,” the second iteration of this series. For this “Design For All” exhibition, we sought to put forth a profile of our Pink Essay community by inviting each exhibitor from our last three shows to come together for a show that truly exemplifies our motto of "design for all." The exhibition was featured as a part of NYCxDESIGN and in I-D Magazine, Curbed, and Sight Unseen.

Opening Reception

Pink Essay is a creative studio & platform re-designing design culture. We make experiences + exhibitions + archives, synthesizing the digital and physical.

We believe that good design is democratic, accessible, antiracist, sustainable and collaborative.

Design culture is on the move: people are excited and ready to see what we can make when we believe in the power of objects as tools of human growth and community connection.

We’re here to make connections, tell stories, and build a new design culture.
