TED speaker Paola Antonelli (watch her TED 2007 talk) has been promoted to senior curator of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s department of architecture and design. The promotion was announced by MoMA‘s director Glenn Lowry. Paola is currently preparing “Design and the Elastic Mind“, an exhibition on science, design and innovation that will open at MoMA on February 24.
Carolyn Porco, leader of the imaging team for the Cassini space mission to Saturn and the opening speaker at TED 2007 (watch her talk), will be the recipient of this year’s Isaac Asimov Science Award, given by American Humanist Association. Porco will receive the award in June in Washington.
To both, congratulations!
