Artful Impact: The Posters of Abram Games
May 18, 2019 @ 12:00 am - July 28, 2019
Pasadena, CA 91105 United States
British designer Abram Games (1914-1996) holds an important place in the legacy of twentieth-century graphic design. For over five decades he interpreted the social, political and commercial pulse of his country by absorbing the influences around him and referencing them in his works. His place in the study of graphic design history has been somewhat over-shadowed by his contemporaries and friends Josef Muller-Brockman, Tom Eckersley and Paul Rand – all born in 1914 as well – or by the simple nature of our visual memory to recall a great design but not necessarily its designer. Special guests include Naomi Games, daughter of Abram Games, keeper of his estate and author of books on his work, and Arnold Schwartzman, award-winning documentary filmmaker and protege of Games.
Opening reception Saturday, May 18, 4-6 pm; Exhibition runs through July 28.
