IRON CURTAIN GRAPHICS: EASTERN EUROPEAN DESIGN CREATED WITHOUT COMPUTERS

IRON CURTAIN GRAPHICS: EASTERN EUROPEAN DESIGN CREATED WITHOUT COMPUTERS

A common assumption is that everything was gray behind the Iron Curtain. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Socialist graphic design from the 1950s to the 1970s is startlingly innovative and colorful and a unique inspiration for current work that is being influenced by classical modernist style trends. Iron Curtain Graphics presents a selection of graphic design, illustration, and typography from the former Eastern Bloc. There, designers were bound by strict rules established by the state regarding the overall visual language they could use.

GENESIS

“In GENESIS, my camera allowed nature to speak to me. And it was my privilege to listen.” —Sebastião Salgado

MAGNUM STREETWISE : THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION OF STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

MAGNUM STREETWISE : THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION OF STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

Magnum Streetwise is an unmissable tour through the photographs and practices that have helped define what street photography is and can be. Magnum photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson pioneered ‘modern’ concepts of street photography before the term was even coined – but their influence is far from historic. A rich seam of street photography runs through the heart of Magnum to this day, both in the work of recognized masters of street photography – such as Erwitt, Parr, Gilden and Kalvar – and of those who might not even consider themselves street photographers; a continued influence that has not gone unnoticed among the current generation of budding street photographers and fans.

HELMUT NEWTON SUMO 20TH ANNIVERSARY

HELMUT NEWTON SUMO 20TH ANNIVERSARY

Helmut Newton (1920–2004) always showed a healthy disdain for the easy or predictable, so it’s no surprise that the SUMO was an irresistible project. The idea of a book the size of a private exhibition, with spectacular images reproduced to state-of-the-art origination and printing standards, emerged from an open, experimental dialogue between photographer and publisher. With the SUMO weighing in—boxed and shrink-wrapped—at 35.4 kg (just under 80 pounds), Newton created a landmark book that stood head and shoulders above anything previously attempted, both in terms of conceptual extravagance and technical specifications.

MURAL XXL WHAT GRAFFITI AND STREET ART DID NEXT

THE CINEMATIC LEGACY OF FRANK SINATRA

THE CINEMATIC LEGACY OF FRANK SINATRA

In a film career spanning more than five decades, Frank Sinatra proved to be a roulette wheel of constantly spinning talent, the likes of which Hollywood has rarely seen. Film history is filled with stars created by the studio system. Occasionally, however, a performer emerged who, against all preconceived odds of what a star should be or look like, knocked down the walls of convention by becoming nothing other than what they already were. Frank Sinatra was the embodiment of this fundamental truth. The legacy of his work stands apart from many of his contemporaries, who essentially based their performances on an extension of a core character type.

DYCKMAN HAZE

DYCKMAN HAZE

In the city there are ways to escape the grid and walk along lines unseen. The city parks of New York offer this escape, eliciting both alienation and intoxication.

Like a church or temple, parks are transformative. Here, young people have a public stage where they can try on different roles in the dark. Other citizens wander, fish, smoke, and pass time while animals lurk in the urban fringes, a reminder of nature’s promises and perils.

THE POLISH RIDER

THE POLISH RIDER

In the winter of 2015, Ben Lerner wrote a short story, The Polish Rider, incorporating fictionalized elements of the life and work of the artist, Anna Ostoya, who had recently lost two of her canvases in the back of an Uber. As the narrator of the story helps the artist search for the missing canvases, he fantasizes about “recuperating the lost paintings through prose,” about how the verbal might take the place of the visual. After the story was published in The New Yorker, Ostoya painted the painting Lerner had invented based on her earlier work, transforming the fiction without changing any of the words. Ostoya went on to produce a series of compositions that respond to the story she’d helped inspire.

At the dawn of the 19th-century, the Prussian explorer Alexander von Humboldt was granted permission to charter an expedition to Spain's colonies in the New World. Over the course of five years, Humboldt would travel to the Orinoco and Amazon rivers, predict the agricultural and commercial potential of Cuba, climb higher in the Andes than anyone before him, and acknowledge the achievements of the ancient indigenous American civilizations. And he recorded it all in a series of diaries. On occasion of the 250th anniversary of Humboldt's birth, the drawings from these diaries are now available in a large format, slip-cased edition.
