In our interview in FADER #79, Andrew Blauvelt, design director and curator at the Walker Art Center, told us about some of the current design trends he’s most interested in, the threads of which make up the bulk of Graphic Design—Now in Production, an exhibition he co-curated with Ellen Lupton, which premiered at The Walker last fall and has since traveled to Governors Island in conjunction with Cooper Hewitt. The show will be on view through September 3rd and open every Saturday, Sunday and holiday Monday, and, if you can only bring yourself to travel to and from one island in NYC on your commute, you can purchase the very excellently designed accompanying catalogue.
