Surreal House Exhibition Catalogue

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2011

Angus Hyland was commissioned to design the graphic identity for ‘The Surreal House’, the blockbuster exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery in London in 2010. The show examined the relationship between Surrealism and architecture and was mounted in an atmospheric, houselike series of rooms. The structure of the catalogue echoes the exhibition design; Hyland and his team created a series of typographic illustrations that are used to demarcate both areas of the exhibition and chapters or ‘maisons’ in the catalogue. The cover features an impossible house, an icon derived from Penrose’s impossible triangle.
