poster for Constructive Posters of the 20th Century

Ends in 36 days

During the first two decades of the 20th century, Constructivism revolutionized art and design. To the field of visual design, Constructivism brought a distinctive style in which icons and text were fused in geometric, abstract forms. This style was employed by numerous artists and designers, including El Lissitzky, Jan Tschichold, Max Bill, and Josef Müller-Brockmann, who through repeated experiments enormously expanded the potential of visual design, laying the foundation for visual design today. This exhibition of works from the Takeo Poster Collection, on deposit at Tama Art University, explores how Constructive posters, which brilliantly illuminated their era, gave birth to trends in the use of icons and text that persisted throughout the twentieth century.
