Experimental Jetset, detail of poster from Graphic Design: Now In Production
The exhibition “Graphic Design—Now In Production” is the first major museum survey of graphic design in over fifteen years, and it is the first curatorial collaboration between Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City. Conceived by curators Andrew Blauvelt and Ellen Lupton, the exhibition explores recent innovations in the field, emphasizing how designers today are using tools, technologies, and systems in order to become authors, instigators, and entrepreneurs. Ellen Lupton will join designers and critics Michael Bierut, Rob Giampietro, and Alice Twemlow for an evening of debate and discussion: Why this show now? What does the exhibition aim to achieve? What questions does it raise? What will the field look like fifteen years from now? The exhibition is on view at Governors Island through Sept 3, Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday Mondays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. The exhibition is presented by Cooper-Hewitt at Governors Island; co-organized by Cooper-Hewitt and Walker Art Center.
This event is co-presented by Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum and AIGA/NY.
