Zurich: Ed Fella exhibition
- Date published
9 oct. 2017
Carhartt WIP proudly presents the opening of the Zurich based Innen gallery and the Ed Fella Print Exhibition. The US Artist, who started his career in Detroit and later moved on to the California Institute of the Arts, was described as a “vanguard master to a new generation of graphic designers,” by cultural critic Vince Carducci in 2007, adding: “Fella has created a body of work that’s as compelling as it is unique. Prodigiously mashing up low-culture sources with highculture erudition, Fella’s work – perhaps more than that of any other contemporary designer – makes visible the postmodern concept of deconstruction, which recognizes that behind every articulated meaning is a host of other, usually repressed meanings, some antithetical. By battering and mixing fonts, engaging in visual puns and generally violating the tenets of ‘good design,’ Fella lets a thousand flowers bloom. His designs don’t cut through the clutter – they revel in it.” In Zurich you’ll be able to experience 15 laser prints of collages made from process out-takes of past Ed Fella archive material and more. The show starts at October 12th and lasts until November 13. For opening hours please visit the website of Innen.
