We’re looking forward to the Type Tuesday about exhibition design next week: ‘Show and tell’ with Pentagram’s Marina Willer. There are still a few tickets left.
The evening will also include Anthony Pearson (Clay Interactive) who will focus on the design of digital experiences in exhibition spaces, and Dinah Casson (Casson Mann) who has been involved in some of the most interesting and complex recent museum installations of the past three and a half decades. The evening will conclude with a panel discussion chaired by Nick Bell.
Read ‘Type Tuesday: Show and Tell’ on the Eye blog for more information.
In ‘Scalpel sharp’, Rick Poynor looks at the work of British photomontage artist Linder Sterling – the subject of a long-overdue retrospective ‘Linderism’ at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge (until 26 April) and the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle (from September).
The exhibition includes videos of her performance pieces, as well as specially commissioned work. Rick writes: ‘Linder has created a body of coruscating images that resume where her punk provocations left off. Now in her mid-60s, she has won international recognition as a collage artist at a time when the medium is flourishing.’
A Practice for Everyday Life (Apfel) designed Ridinghouse’s 2015 book Linder, as well as doing the exhibition design for the 2013 exhibition ‘Linder: Femme/Objet’ at Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Read an extract from Alex J. Todd’s article ‘Everyday people’ in Eye 99.
I’m looking forward to taking part in Plan D.konferencija 2020 in Zagreb, Croatia this weekend (27–29 February). Other speakers at this international design conference include Deniz Ova, director of Istanbul Design Biennial, senior curator Koraljka Vloj and my wife Clare Walters, who will be talking about her archive of wordless children’s picturebooks. (See ‘Told in pictures’ in Eye 85.)
