Description

Hear critically acclaimed graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister discuss his practice and new exhibition, Beautiful Numbers, with Big Motive Design Director, Rebecca Walsh.

Currency on display at the Thomas Erben Gallery in New York, Beautiful Numbers was conceived in 2020 as the daily lived experience — and short term media — reflected a world seemingly out of control, with democracy in peril, ubiquitous conflicts and an overall outlook of doom.

Sagmeister has visualised data collected over 100 years and transformed these graphs into inlaid 19th Century genre paintings, embroidered canvases, lenticular prints and hand-painted water glasses.

Stefan Sagmeister is an Austrian graphic designer, storyteller, and typographer based in New York City. In 1993, Sagmeister founded his company, Sagmeister Inc., to create designs for the music industry. He has designed album covers for Lou Reed, OK Go, The Rolling Stones, David Byrne, Jay Z, Aerosmith, Talking Heads, Brian Eno and Pat Metheny.

This event is organised as part of the Our Place in Space project.
