Season 1 artist Shahzia Sikander will serve as the ninth guest curator of the Selects exhibition series at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.  Past Selects guest curators have included artist Yinka Shonibare and designers Hella Jongerius, IDEO, and the Campana Brothers.

Mining the permanent collection, Sikander will interpret the holdings and produce an installation of selected works in the museum’s Nancy and Edwin Marks Gallery.  The exhibition, opening tomorrow and running through September 7, will also include an original new piece created by the MacArthur Fellow that was inspired by the collection.
