Gallery guide and exhibition graphics

This project dates back to 2002, in Minneapolis. The challenge was to create the graphic materials for the Walker Art Center‘s Walk Around Time: Selections from the Permanent Collection exhibition and a gallery guide that provides more information about the artworks and artists in the exhibition.
The result: A graphic identity for the exhibition was created that reflected the timeframe of the artworks in the galleries. A two-sided gallery guide was created that reflected this time-bound identity.

One side provided information about the artworks and mapped them according to the three curatorial tours of the exhibition. The back side provided personal information about the artists and mapped their respective cities where they were born, where they studied, and where they exhibited work. It became evident through this map that New York was the 20th century art capital of the world that connected most artists at some point in their careers.
