he Wolfsonian–FIU, Miami will be hosting “Julius Klinger: Posters for a Modern Age,” from October 6, 2017 through April 1, 2018.
One of the leading graphic artists of the modern age, Austrian designer Julius Klinger (1876–1942) transformed commercial visual culture through his innovative advertising posters, book and magazine illustrations, mass promotional campaigns, ornamental and typographical design, and brand development. This exhibition will present the works of the designer that highlight the issues of identity—personal, corporate, and national — as well as the impact of cultural displacement on the history of design, and the role of commercial art in the modern city.
The exhibition will be on view at The Wolfsonian–FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL.
