Paola Antonelli is senior curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art, where, beginning with her highly acclaimed debut exhibition, Mutant Materials and Contemporary Design, she has consistently challenged popular definitions of design. She has curated exhibits in Italy, France, and Japan, contributed to numerous publications, and lectures frequently at global gatherings such as the World Economic Forum. In 2006, Antonelli earned the Smithsonian's prestigious Design Mind Award, and in 2007 was named by Time as one of the 25 most incisive design visionaries.
