Steven McCarthy (Graphic Design) will give an illustrated presentation on works from the Goldstein Museum's graphic design collection. Centered around the concept of design authorship -- where designers' roles are expanded from professional service providers to socially, culturally and politically engaged communication initiators -- the collection spans 70 years of innovation. Among the notable publications are early 20th century journal PM (eventually A-D), the complete set of Emigre Magazine from the late 20th century, and issues of Push Pin Graphic, Octavo: A Journal of Typography, Portfolio, Fuse, News of the Whirled, and others. Artifacts from the collection will be on display.
