New this week: Gyorgy Kepes (1906-2001). Glow, 1974. Oil and sand on canvas, 48 x 60“. Hot acidic colors with earthtones is a strategy particular to the early 1970s.. My forecast is that we will be seeing much more of this unexpected palette in forthcoming design editorials. We already are. #goodbyebeige #maximalism #gyorgykepes #lyricalabstraction #1970s #abstractpainting

‘sign image and symbol’ edited by George Kepes
Studio Vista, London, 1966
.
A rather unusual volume, with some arresting images. "Communication in the very broadest sense of the term is the subject of this book. The most varied problems and aspects of perception, observation, comprehension, and representation are studied here by a biophysicist, a biologist, psychologist, educators, anthropologists and artists. One group of essays establishes a broad interpretation of the meaning of signs, images and symbols. A second group deals with the concrete evaluation of tasks and techniques of spatial and visual communication, it explores the use and impact of signs, images and symbols in the visual arts, architecture, films, industry and advertising."

'Findings" by Gyorgy Kepes 1973-74, oil, sand, collage on canvas. 28" x 28"

György Kepes (1906–2001) was a Hungarian-born painter, designer, educator and art theorist. After emigrating to the U.S. in 1937, he taught design at the New Bauhaus (later the School of Design, then Institute of Design, then Illinois Institute of Design or IIT) in Chicago. In 1967, he founded the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he taught until his retirement in 1974.

Design and Books | 5. It would have been quite a coup for any 1960s editor to have coaxed, begged or harried such eminent designers and architects as R. Buckminster Fuller, Alison and Peter Smithson, Saul Bass and Pier Luigi Nervi into contributing to a book, as well as the physicist Lancelot Law Whyte, mathematician Jacob Bronowski, media theorist Marshall McLuhan, artist Ad Reinhardt and composer John Cage. Yet they all wrote for Vision + Value, a series of six books edited by Gyorgy Kepes, a Hungarian designer who had worked as a visual theorist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since the late 1940s. He envisaged Vision + Value as a collective endeavour in which designers, artists, scientists, psychologists and historians would explore ways of combining their skills and knowledge to visualise – and eventually realise – a better future, and called in favours from friends to contribute the dozen or so essays in every book. Each one addressed a different aspect of visual culture: structure, objects, movement, symbolism, repetition and education respectively. As well as editing the books, Kepes designed them, down to eloquent juxtapositions of images, such as such as the pairing of an ancient shell mask unearthed in Tennessee with a racing driver’s helmet, in The Man-Made Object. @design @bookdesign #gyorgykepes #mit #vision+value #designandbooks
