Polarities: Black and White in Design
October 15, 2011- December 30
Reception: October 20, 2011, 6-8 PM
In Western cultures, black and white are often associated with concepts such as death, wickedness, cleanliness, purity, and peace. The social meanings attributed to black and white can be conflicted and varied. However, whether used for pragmatic issues of readability, stylistic effect, economy of means, or cultural standards, the use of black and white in design is not incidental. This exhibition explores social interpretations of black, white, and black and white in objects throughout GMD's collections.
GMD programs funded in part by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
