For their exhibition Georges Seurat: The Drawings, the Museum of Modern Art engaged Behavior to design a companion website in addition to a kiosk where visitors can securely explore Seurat’s four surviving sketchbooks.

We embraced the opportunity to engage the obstacles involved in collecting, digitizing, and choreographing the assorted raw materials and translating them into a single, intuitive interface. The kiosk we designed is an all-access pass to otherwise privileged material and adds a multidimensional layer that heightens the experience and allure of the exhibition.

“The Museum of Modern Art’s elegantly plain exhibition of Georges Seurat’s drawings begins with an unexpectedly extraordinary moment of computerized art viewing.” ~ Roberta Smith, New York Times

Behavior received a Silver Davey Award for the design of MoMA’s Georges Seurat Website & Kiosk.
