Martin Venezky: What I Know About Photography
An exhibition featuring a celebrated graphic designer might typically offer instant accessibility and familiarity to iconic works; however, in this case, Venezky shows a less-known aspect of his creative practice. A body of photographic work has existed literally in the “background,” hovering behind or aside his ornate and dynamic typographic compositions that are his signature.
Venezky recently dedicated his sabbatical year to recontextualize his work and reinvent himself in this connected discipline.
The DesignSpace, launched in 2016, provides a public forum for deeper engagement in design, its practices and discourses. The gallery also serves as the primary campus showcase for student work in graphic design, consumer product and industrial design, interior design and apparel design. Joshua Singer, director.
