Typeface To Interface
On view at the SFMOMA through October 23, the Typeface to Interface exhibition presents a selection from the museum’s permanent collection of graphic design since 1950.
The exhibition notes the shift from analog to digital in visual communication and includes important examples of communication tools that have shaped our relationship with graphic design.
Oscillating between structured formalism and free form expression, the works on view show the rapidly evolving field of graphic design.
Advertising, wayfinding, and information systems are displayed alongside artistic and conceptual experimentation, providing a view of the progressive discourse on what graphic design is and how it is used.
