Key curators include Andrew Blauvelt, curator of architecture and design at The Walker Art Center, and Ellen Lupton, senior curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt. The presentation is a collaboration of works created since 2000; it showcases posters, books, magazines, identity and branding, information graphics, typography and typefaces, and film and television title graphics. Brooke Hodge, director, exhibition management and publications, spearheads the upcoming exhibit for the Hammer.

Celebrating both the recent technological advances in software and the societal changes due to social networking, the exhibit acts as somewhat of a timeline, guiding you through a progression in visual communication. The 21st Century has proved an exciting time for those in the graphic design profession. From Albert Exergian’s poster based on American Television to Jop Van Bennekom’s Fantastic Man, which Interview Magazine calls, “One of the most remarkable magazines of this era.”
