This coming Monday, I’ll have the honor of speaking at The Museum of Modern Art here in New York City as part of their PopRally event series. This particular event highlights MoMA’s current exhibition “The New Typography,” which includes a selection of seminal works from the eponymous design movement of the 1920s and 1930s. All of the pieces included in the exhibition are drawn from the personal collection of the legendary designer Jan Tschichold. Though the show is fairly small and intimate, there are some legendary and amazing selections to be seen there.
I’ll be joining Stephen Doyle of Doyle Partners, Chester Jenkins of Village, and moderator Juliet Kinchin (MoMA Curator of Architecture and Design), on stage in a conversation about typography in the twenty-first century and how it both draws upon and departs from the work of the New Typography from nearly a century ago. Needless to say, I’m very humbled. The event begins in one of the auditoriums at the museum’s main galleries on Fifty-third Street, and then continues upstairs with a private group viewing of the exhibition. I hope you can join us!
