at the MoMA: tangled alphabets

Yesterday I had the chance to go to the MoMA with a former schoolmate and friend. The exhibits that stood out to me were of two Latin American artists, Leon Ferrari and Mira Schendel called Tangled Alphabets. They are two artists who were contemporaries and both used language, words and gestures as their main subject matter. From a graphic design perspective, we appreciated the beautiful use of typographic design as a form of expression. Equally as interesting are the architectural quality to the three dimensional components of the show. I've always seen commonalities between typographic design and architecture. I believe they both speak the same fundamental visual language. So seeing these elements together made a lot of sense — both from a visual as well as a conceptual perspective. Mostly, it was a great source of inspiration for me. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. 

Below are details of just some of the work from the exhibit's website. It's definitely a show worth seeing in person in order to fully appreciate. Many of the current exhibits at the MoMA were very inspiring.
