Claudia Comte: Zigzags and Diagonals

Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveand, 11400 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44106 United States

Claudia Comte (1983, Grancy, CHE) is a Swiss artist whose sculptures, large wall paintings, and immersive installations emerge from the artist’s interest in the shapes and forms of Modernism. For each new wall painting Comte creates a series of compositional parameters through which she builds striking optical designs that entirely reshape the architecture and space. Zigzags and Diagonals is the inaugural wall painting in a new and ongoing series of wall-based installations by contemporary artists in MOCA’s unique and visionary architectural spaces.

The Sea Ranch

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 151 3rd Street
San Francisco, CA 94103 United States

This exhibition brings together original sketches and drawings from the…

Jan Tschichold and the New Typography: Graphic Design Between the World Wars

Bard Graduate Center, 38 West 86th Street
New York, 10024 United States

Tracing the revolution in graphic design in the 1920s, this exhibition displays materials assembled by typographer and designer Jan Tschichold (1902–1974) in Weimar Germany. Published in Berlin in 1928, Tschichold’s book Die Neue Typographie was one of the key texts of modern design, partly due to its grasp of Constructivist ideas and new print technology, but equally, because it was a manual for practicing designers. In the years leading up to its publication, Tschichold struck up a correspondence with many European artist-designers,…
