HASH(0x927cefd8) out of 5 stars Book concept: a coincidence? 22 May 2013
By Steven McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book employs the exact same concept of an exhibition I curated and catalog I edited a decade ago! Form/Inform, shown at the University of Minnesota's Goldstein Museum of Design in Fall 2003, was an exhibit that was both curated (with invitational works) and juried. Form/ Inform's catalog described the show as: "an exhibition that examines the trajectory from graphic design education to professional practice. Each designer's submission consists of a single student project, a current piece of professional work, and a brief statement that puts the two in context." (Steven McCarthy 2003) The show had some better known American designers (Todd Childers, Kali Nikitas, Kenneth FitzGerald, Doug Powell, Jon Sueda, etc. and a few international ones too: Gabriele Franziska Götz, Paul McNeil, Andrew Byrom, etc.).
