It’s Not Only Rock ’n’ Roll, Baby!

Base Design, New York, New York, 2008

Description

For the 2008 Bozar exhibition presenting the visual work of artists better known for their contributions in the world of music, Base designed a book/catalogue as a cross between an art book and a rock zine. The book features exclusive interviews with the artists and photographs of their artwork. The artists are represented as silhouetted icons, and the text is in black and white, contrasting with the color images and underlining the distinction between music and art. 

Juror Notes

This exhibition catalogue is a cross between an art publication and a rock magazine. The designer uses rock aesthetics to attract a younger audience to a museum. The hallmarks of “rock” are suitably employed: big, large type and equally matched images. Tactile.
