Through 23 August 2020
The Poster House is the first museum in the United States that is entirely dedicated to posters from around the world from the late 1800s to the present day.
In the current exhibit on the Swiss Grid, the work on view explores the development and impact of the International Typographic Style. Influenced by the Concrete art of the Bauhaus and Jan Tschichold’s The New Typography, the practitioners of this style streamlined compositions through adherence to geometric grid structures. The results were pared down, harmonious, instantly comprehensible designs—masterpieces of communication—that have stood the test of time.
