Erik Spiekermann Explains It All

Unbeige - Thu, 11/06/2014 - 11:40

erik s

hello I am erikLike most beings who can have their day ruined by a sign set in Comic Sans, we’ve long admired Erik Spiekermann‘s typographic genius, but who knew he was also a master of similes? “Having a color copier in ’77 was like having a nuclear reactor in the basement,” he told a rapt audience earlier this week at Parsons, where he appeared with designer Johannes Erler to promote Hello I am Erik. The biography-cum-pictorial history, edited, written, and designed by Erler in close cooperation with Spiekermann (who designed the book’s lone typeface, “Real,” and whose son, Dylan, provided the English translation) documents the famed typographer’s projects, traces milestones in his life, and offers his personal perspectives on design alongside essays by the likes of Neville Brody and Stefan Sagmeister. Below are some of the most illuminated Spiekermann-isms of the evening.

On Hello I am Eric:
I had nothing to do with this book except I employed somebody to go through what little archives I have—because I had this big fire in ’77 and then a couple of floods and my ex-partners threw away all my archives, so there was very little there. Poor Inga had to spend a year finding stuff, which was impossible.

On the typeface he created for the book:
I kept out of the design [of the book] because I was the subject, not the doer. The one requirement I had was that I’ve always wanted to do this particular typeface that is based on the weight of Akzidenz-Grotesk. There’s a specific weight that only existed in very large wooden or resin letters, and I’ve always liked it…and this was the opportunity to do it. So I said to Johannes, OK, I’m going to design this typeface—one weight only—and you will only use one weight in this whole book.

On the fluorescent cover:
We both happen to like dayglo. I’m not much of a color person. I’m very black and white. But I’ve always liked orange dayglo.

Less than a week stands between you and the 2014 MAD Ball, set for November 11 at NYC’s Pier Sixty, when the Museum of Arts and Design will celebrate not only the one-year anniversary of director Glenn Adamson’s invigorating arrival but also the recipients of its annual Visionaries! Awards. This year’s winners, chosen for their influential creations or leadership in art, craft, and design, are Michael Aram, whose eponymous company is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year; double-take-inducing artist Richard Dupont; gallerist and collector Barry Friedman; and Ligne Roset. Each will receive a new gilded-glass award created by artist and verre eglomisé pro Miriam Ellner, who was featured in MAD’s recent NYC Makers-themed Biennial. Also freshly commissioned for the MAD Ball are a series of live demonstrations by artists and makers including photographer Benjamin Fredrickson, ceramicist Zack Davis, and pastry chef Olivier Dessyn. Proceeds from the MAD Ball support the museum’s arts education programs.

On the Art of the #Artselfie

Unbeige - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 12:11

artselfie“In deciding how a picture should look, in preferring one exposure to another, photographers are always imposing standards on their subjects,” wrote Susan Sontag in On Photography. “Although there is a sense in which the camera does indeed capture reality, not just interpret it, photographs are as much an interpretation of the world as paintings and drawings are.” But what about when the subject is the photographer, with his or her face jutting into the frame alongside a painting, drawing, or other work of art? Then you’ve entered the meta-interpretative world of the #artselfie. The keen cultural observers over at DIS Magazine peg the birth of this self-portrait-with-artwork phenomenon, now ubiquitous at most any museum or gallery exhibition, to 2012, “right as the recent photographic phenomenon known as the selfie reached its tipping point.” Having seized upon the #artselfie as an “aggregated mode of art-tourism and documentation” with a dedicated Tumblr, DIS teamed with Mathieu Cénac and David Desrimais‘s Jean Boîte éditions to publish a book full of them. Recently feted at Galerie Yvon Lambert in Paris, the volume includes an introduction by Douglas Coupland and a discussion between Swiss Institute director Simon Castets and DIS. Order a copy here and then take a photo of yourself reading it for an #artselfieselfie.

Quote of Note | Frank Gehry

Unbeige - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 05:37

frank g“I’ve always talked to artists about designing art museums. I’ve always heard the same thing, which is the opposite of what Glenn Lowry [of MoMA] and those people always push for: the white pristine box. I guess they don’t know any better. Most of the artists I know complain about that, and younger artists today are refusing to be in that white box—it’s imposing a ‘purity’ that is in fact intrusive. You can see that those galleries at MoMA have failed; they have to redo them now….I’ve been listening to artists for 40 years about what galleries they want. Every artist I know loved Bilbao. Every museum director I know hated Bilbao.”

Frank Gehry, in a recent interview with Jori Finkel for The Art Newspaper
