Ironic Design

June 2017

As part of his thesis exhibition and research to complete his MFA Degree, Blake Dodgen is curating an exhibit at the Gadsden Museum of Art titled Ironic Design.


This is a national juried exhibit and a thesis exhibit for Dodgen’s research to gather data about various uses of irony in contemporary art and design.



The exhibit features an array of disciplines showcasing different interpretations of irony.



The exhibit is ultimately a research component to determine how patrons react to irony and how it plays a crucial role as an element of contemporary design.



There will be a closing reception for Dodgen’s show on Friday, June 23rd from 5 PM – 7 PM at the Gadsden Museum of Art.



Your participation is welcome with this exhibit. Data Collection Surveys regarding patrons’ analysis of exhibition content can be found in the gallery.
