Graphic Design-Now In Production, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present Graphic Design-Now in Production, a major international exhibition that explores some of the most vibrant graphic design work produced since 2000, including posters, books, magazines, identity and branding, information graphics, typography and typefaces, and film and television title graphics. The exhibition is organized around eight themes: Posters, Magazines, Books, Information Design, Branding, Typography, Storefront, and Film and Television Titles. Graphic Design-Now in Production is co-organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York.
Graphic Design explores the worlds of design-driven magazines, newspapers, books, and posters; the expansion of branding programs for corporations, institutions, and subcultures; the entrepreneurial spirit of designer-produced goods; the renaissance in digital typeface design; the storytelling potential of film and television titling sequences; and the transformation of raw data into compelling information narratives.
On view until September 29, 2013. More info here: http://camh.org/exhibitions/graphic-design—now-production#.UgG8AKXfb0d
