We recently got a tip-off about Messy Msxi from Singapore. She’s a recent grad from Central Saint Martin, School of Arts and Design. I particularly love her series of illustrations entitled An Effort Most Futile (shown above).

Zero 1,2,3

07 July 2009

Environmental and elemental art — large-scale and sky art — kinetic and technological art — random happenings and programmed events — multimedia and light shows: ZERO 1, 2, 3 documents the birth, more than ten years ago, of these new tendencies in international art. It collects in one volume the three publications created by the artists’ collaborative, Group Zero, between 1958 and 1961.

H_edge Detail

Cecil Balmond is a brilliant and imaginative structural engineer whose 9-month-long exhibition, Solid Void at Chicago’s Graham Foundation, ends tomorrow. His site-specific installation, H_edge, carves an intricate, self-supporting labyrinth from the gallery space, a century-old, prairie-style mansion. A few more photos from my visit are on Flickr.

In an expression of the inexpressible

From the first visuals featured on rock and roll record sleeves through contemporary music videos and magazines, graphic design has played and integral role in visualizing music.

For instance, Andy Warhol’s artwork for the Velvet Underground and Peter Saville’s iconic Joy Division album covers are forever burned in our collective cultural memory as images synonymous with the music.

In An Expression of the Inexpressible features contemporary international designers whose work showcases the current interactions of music and design.

This exhibition features art, graphic design and video works by Stefan Sagmeister, Non-Format, Karlssonwilker, Mike Mills, Trevor Jackson, Yokoland, Sara Haraigue, Mario Hugo, RD Granados, Stereotype Design, Standard Motion, Si Scott, Sonnenzimmer, Roger Bova, Shannon McGlothin, Jean Jullien, Hannah Waldron, Mike Little, Chris Rubino and Géraldine Georges.

Whirling colors smash into dangling foliage. Maya Hayuk is amazing. I recommend looking through her older work too if you aren’t familiar. She also has a book out through Upper Playground, available here.
