MUAC – UNAM
October 18, 2014 – February 22, 2015
Over the past five decades, the figure of Lance Wyman has been a keystone in contemporary design, and his work has established itself as a fundamental element for understanding the visual culture of the present day. ‘Coming and Going’, curated by Pilar Garcia, focuses on the central axis of Wyman’s work: design as an urban proposal. the presence of his icons persists in the Mexican social, cultural and urban imaginary, and his work marked a watershed in the history of design in the country.
For this exhibition at El Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) de la UNAM in Mexico City, projects were chosen that have influenced the visual identification of urban life in Mexico and the wider world, including furniture, sketches, photographs and statements that offer insight into the creative process of abstraction and research that Wyman engages in to find a solution to each of his projects.
