Unmonumental Series

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2008

Rather than trumpet their impressive new building, the New Museum’s curators have conceived this book around the idea of un-monumentality. In so doing, they have zeroed in on a major new tendency in contemporary sculpture. Assembled from bits of the world at large, these artworks are powerful but patently anti-heroic. The design for the book should present the work clearly and respectfully while still conveying its fragmented character.
