Senior Curator of Architecture & Design, MoMA

Violence that is design-enabled is much subtler.

Paola is Senior Curator of Architecture & Design, Director of Research & Development at MoMA. Her work investigates design’s influence on everyday experience, often including overlooked objects and practices, and combines design, architecture, art, science and technology.

Paola was appointed director of a new Research and Development initiative in 2012. She lectures frequently at high-level global conferences and coordinates cultural discussions at the World Economic Forum in Davos. A true interdisciplinary, energetic and generous cultural thinker, Paola was recently rated as one of the top one hundred most powerful people in the world of art by Art Review.

  • A woman in an orange blazer is speaking in front of a group of people in a classroom setting. On the screen behind her are images of a rifle, 3D-printed gun parts, and a person shooting a firearm outdoors. The audience is seated and attentively listening.
  • A man and a woman are standing outside in front of a wall covered in ivy. Both are holding bottles of lager, with the man holding an additional glass. The man is wearing a black sweater and a watch; the woman is wearing a brown coat. They are smiling at the camera.
  • A woman smiles while holding a bottle of beer. She's wearing a dark jacket and a beige scarf. In the background, there are other people and a sign with a lightning bolt. The setting appears to be outdoors.
  • Two women, both holding bottles of beer, pose for a photo outdoors against a brick wall with caution stickers. One woman has long red hair, and the other has dark hair in a ponytail with bangs, both smiling. In the background, two people are partially visible, one eating pizza.
  • A group of four people engaged in a conversation indoors. One woman, wearing an orange blazer and holding a red cup, appears to be speaking, while others listen attentively. The room is well-lit with shelves and decorations visible in the background.
