Museum and magazine
New exhibitions at the Graphic Design Museum in Breda, Holland
The Graphic Design Museum in Breda, Holland, has published a magazine to coincide with its three new exhibitions, which run until early June:
Who Sets the Standard?
Jan Tschichold, Guiding a New Tradition
Template Culture: Form Follows Format
It’s interesting to see the influence of director Mieke Gerritzen, who is the magazine’s editor in chief, on the publication’s design and content. You can get an idea of the magazine on the Issu website.
The Tschichold article is accompanied by a huge picture of the Master - see the Spring issue of Eye, later this month, for Richard Hollis’s views on the way celebrity culture is affecting the way we view design history.
You can read our article about the Graphic Design Museum, ‘Polyphonic playground’, on the Eye website, curator Esther Cleven’s ‘Missing link’, on the Eye blog and ‘Tour de flash’ Rick Poynor’s review of Gerritzen’s Style First. in Eye no. 67 vol. 17.
We now have an Events page on the Eye blog for exhibitions, conferences and talks worldwide. If you have an event you would like to tell us about, please send a short email to Carolina or Joe, c/o/ intern at eyemagazine dot com.
