Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) is an exhibition exploring the impact of digital fabrication on contemporary art, architecture, and design. Represented will be some of the most compelling creations from 80 international artists, architects, and designers, including Ron Arad, Barry X Ball, Zaha Hadid, Stephen Jones, Anish Kapoor, Allan McCollum, Marc Newson, and Roxy Paine.

3D printing company Shapeways is partnering with MAD for the exhibition and will host 'OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON,' an educational and interactive space on the Museum's second floor where visitors will be able to experience 3D design and printing firsthand.

Opening in conjunction with the exhibition on October 16th and running through April 2014, the 'OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON' space will include a series of interactive 3D apps for visitors to choose from a selection of existing 3D models or create their own 3D models, on site 3D scanning, and 3D printing in a range of materials.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to be 3D scanned and 3D printed into mini figurines by an in-house high resolution 3D printer in any of the 30 materials currently available on Shapeways. The figurines will be available for purchase on Shapeways' website.

Shapeways' 'Designers in Residence' working in the gallery will be available to demonstrate 3D modeling techniques and tools used to create objects like those in the exhibition.

The exhibition will also be accompanied by an active roster of public and educational programs, from workshops and lectures to curriculum-based programs serving K-12 students, such as:

  • Everything You Wanted to Know About 3D Printing but Didn't Know Who to Ask
  • Intro to 3D Printing, Software, Materials, and Processes
  • Intro to 3D Design for 3D Printing

Additional classes will be added on a regular basis. For more information on classes and timing visit MAD's website.

MAD Location: 2 Columbus Circle, New York, NY
