“Design is not closed off. It’s one of the most accessible spaces, an open source for anyone to explore,” says Alexander May. Last year the L.A.-based artist, curator, and entrepreneur co-founded SIZED, the peripatetic exhibition studio for collectible art and objects, which freely blends work by artists with more craft-oriented decorative arts, as well as industrial design. Through sophisticated curation, Sized perfectly showcases the cross-disciplinarity May describes. “It’s not about gatekeeping, but about championing the merging of talent from seemingly unrelated sectors,” he explains. For PIN–UP May curated work by 31 artists and makers spanning the North American continent, celebrating the range of American practice today.
