Lawrence Weiner: ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY HAVE THE SAME FACE

For this new artwork commissioned by the Jewish Museum, Weiner drew upon an old Yiddish phrase he often heard when growing up, ‘Ale Yevanim habn eyn punim,’ meaning all Greeks (i.e., all non-Jews) have the same face. Weiner reconceived this text to read ‘ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY HAVE THE SAME FACE’, and translated it simultaneously into English, Hebrew, and Arabic on a field of vibrant blue.

HfG Ulm: Ausstellungsfieber [ONLINE]

Exhibitions were so in vogue in the 1950s and 60s that experts spoke of an ‘exhibition fever’. Design was the topic of many exhibitions and fairs, and the HfG Ulm played a prominent role. The dynamic atmosphere of these decades becomes tangible for online visitors to ‘HfG Ulm: Exhibition Fever’ through presentations in diverse media, ranging from the impact of the Ulm School of Design and its global reception to the search for an ideal exhibition design.

‘HfG Ulm: Exhibition Fever’ forms the conclusion of a four-year research project ‘The Visibility of the Ulm School of Design: From Ulm to Montréal’, supported by the Volkswagen Foundation and organised by Folkwang University of the Arts, Essen, the HfG-Archiv Ulm, and Pforzheim University.

Vera List

Vera List and the posters of Lincoln Center
Poster House’s second mini-exhibition focuses on the contribution made by Vera List to the creation of a poster program advertising the new Lincoln Center complex in 1962. Inspired by artist-designed posters she had seen in Paris, she earmarked $200,000 as seed money for what would become the List Art Poster Program (later known as the Vera List Art Project), featuring some of the most notable names in contemporary art, from Andy Warhol to Roy Lichtenstein, Ben Shahn to Robert Indiana. Each poster advertises a new building or event at the venue, chronicling how a now-famous New York institution was introduced to the public through posters.
