Revolution:Evolution International Graphic Design Exhibition

Exhibition/Curation


Location
College for Creative Studies
Valade Gallery, Detroit, MI

Overview
The exhibition documents the “Revolution” that started transforming design in the mid 1980’s. The then new digital tools and a shift in the perceived role of design within the culture informed the designer’s radically new visual solutions. Elements of theory and the use of digital as the medium decidedly changed the surface of the artifact but not the vehicle, ink on paper.

“Evolution” includes recent work by invited designers where the invisible, the underlying system, is as important as the visible. There are a number of ways this is manifest among the approaches demonstrated by the designers listed. Equally important to a segment of the work is how user involvement allows for constantly changing, mutable solutions. The designer creates the parameters and the user creates endless variations.
