David Carson, Space Cowboy
Schmidt Center Gallery Public Space: February 27 - Summer 2017
Opening: Saturday, February 25, 6:30pm
David Carson, Space Cowboy presents a diverse selection of Carson’s pioneering work, beginning in the early 1990s in Ray-Gun and Beach Culture magazines, that ushered in fresh and unprecedented combinations of image and type just as computer design was also changing designer’s relationships to typography. Carson’s work significantly shook up typographic practice over 20 years ago and remains influential as demonstrated by his being awarded the 2014 AIGA Medal from the American Institute for Graphic Arts.
