The Stedelijk Museum celebrates the prolific career of the Dutch graphic designer Wim Crouwel, who designed all the graphic work for the Stedelijk Museum from 1963 to 1985. Crouwel is regarded as one of the leading designers of the 20th century. In addition to celebrating Crouwel’s career, this exhibition also explores his legacy and influence on contemporary graphic design. Wim Crouwel, A Graphic Odyssey was previously on view at the Design Museum in London and features work from the Stedelijk Museum’s collection and archive.
In the exhibition, archival material will be on view—including original sketches, catalogues, posters, flyers, stamp designs, calendars, type design and photographic documentation—alongside films, such as a recent interview with the designer.
The exhibition is organized by the Design Museum, London, in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
