Copy, Transform, Combine. Swiss Modernism Exhibition at UNH




Seton Gallery at the University of New Haven
Feb. 27 to Mar. 30
Closing Reception Mar. 24 6–8 pm

Swiss modernism is most commonly taught from the pages of a textbook as a movement with a simple linear trajectory. “Copy, Transform, Combine.” is an exhibition of historically significant Swiss posters from the private collection of Thomas Strong, aimed at deepening the historical/practical education of graphic design students with a more immersive material and contextual experience. The gallery space will be accesible to students and will become an active workspace, where students will be able to copy, transform, and combine new works based on these exemplars. Curated by Javier Viramontes with Karina Eckmeier.

Presented in collaboration with AIGA Connecticut.
