MOTO MMXX

June 20–November 15, 2020
Member Preview Night–Friday, June 19, 2020

The custom motorcycle scene has exploded over the past decade, transitioning from a fringe pursuit into a mainstream phenomenon. Moto MMXX will display custom motorcycles that epitomize and represent the best contemporary examples of this resurgence. Featuring motorcycles from around the globe, Moto MMXX showcases innovative international builders, cutting-edge custom motorcycles, as well as material samples, models, sketches and renderings that unveil the creative process behind the final product.

Reflecting a broad range of techniques that builders employ, guest curator Hugo Eccles offers a glimpse behind the curtain of the custom motorcycle scene allowing visitors the ability to experience both the finished ‘design’ and the ‘craft’ behind the glossy machines. Eccles, an industrial designer and motorcycle builder renowned for his radical, future-forward designs, is the co-founder and director of Untitled Motorcycles–a design company that creates and builds custom motorcycles for both private clients and for factory brands such as Ducati, Triumph, Yamaha and Zero. Moto MMXX will challenge the audience’s perception of the traditional motorcycle and highlight possible directions that the industry is going, can go or should go. It will showcase the actors and supporting characters, who design and build contemporary custom motorcycles using both traditional crafts and state-of-the-art technologies.
