Look Both Ways is free and open to the public, and will be on view from August 24 through September 21 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery. Look Both Ways showcases the many ways in which words, text and information influence art, design, literature and music. Bold typographic expression has become the cultural currency of communication and the centerpiece of connection. Objects and experiences all around us now contain an inscription, an impression or a point of view. Our bodies, clothing, public events, sports, politics and even the products we consume have given people, by way of social media and the Internet, an instantaneous way to communicate globally. On an intimately personal level, tattoos have assumed the atavistic power that religious amulets once had to convey messages about ourselves, with the immediate power of images and words. This dynamic is evident today in all disciplines of visual communications, reflecting the condition of our culture.The works in this exhibition come largely from Millman’s own personal collection of text-based art. In addition to her work as an educator and leader at SVA, Millman is an acclaimed designer, writer, and strategist and has been hosting her "Design Matters" podcast for more than 14 years.“I am thrilled to partner with SVA to share this selection of typography works from a group of innovative and outspoken artists, several from my own personal collection,” said curator and MPS Branding chair Debbie Millman. “This exhibition is a stark reminder of the power language has to rule all facets of culture. These works will undoubtedly incite many passionate discussions.”
