Current work on view: “Markus Lüpertz: Threads of History” at the Hirshhorn Museum, and a visit to Sound Scene X

10 Jul 2017

A quick check-in here!

I stopped by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden this past weekend for Sound Scene X, and to take some photos of a project I currently have on view in the museum’s lower level.

I worked with the museum’s design staff to develop the graphic concept for their exhibition Markus Lüpertz: Threads of History, on view through September 10.

I developed the concept for the exhibition graphics, and after many rounds of refinement, handed over template files for the museum’s designers to produce final graphics (with the exception of the timeline graphic, which I laid out). This was done because of scheduling—usually I prefer to handle the layout of final production files.

I also designed two exterior signs advertising the exhibition, for display outside the museum. The blue sign has already been replaced with one for another exhibition—things move fast on the Mall sometimes!

Additional photos of the exhibition are up on my portfolio.

Please check out the exhibition if you’re in the DC area! And if you like it, there’s a concurrently-open exhibition Markus Lüpertz at the Phillips Collection. I have become a fan of Lüpertz’s work—particularly the Donald Duck paintings, one of which you can see through the exhibition’s entrance in the first photo, and on the blue sign above.

 


This weekend was a good time to be a kid (of any age) at the Hirshhorn—the galleries were full of interactive sound installations, live museum, and sound-related activities, all part of Sound Scene X: “Dissonance.”

While at the museum, I also took the opportunity to check out their newly opened exhibition, Ai WeiWei: Trace at Hirshhorn.

I’m currently working with the museum on another exhibition, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Utopian Projects, set to open in a month. Stay tuned for that!
