Morandi catalogo Mapfre

CATALOGUEMORANDI — FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE

We have added a new publication to our regular collaborations with Fundación MAPFRE with the design of the catalogue Morandi. Infinite Resonance, which accompanies the retrospective exhibition and takes us on a journey through the work of Giorgio Morandi, one of the most significant and unclassifiable artists in the history of 20th century art.

 

Morandi was one of the masters of figurative representation, such as still lifes, and a contemporary of the Futurists. Influenced in his early days by the Italian masters (Giotto, Uccello, Masaccio) and, later, by Cézanne and Cubism, his treatment of composition and objects and his use of color make his work  not only transcendental but metaphysical.

 

The publication also reflects the dialogue established between Morandi’s work and a selection of works by major figures in contemporary art such as the photographer Joel Meyerowitz, the sculptor Rachel Whiteread, the ceramist Edmund de Waal and the multidisciplinary artist Tacita Dean, among others.

 

Organised by Fundación MAPFRE and Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera, the exhibition can be visited from 27th September 2021 to 9th January 2022 at the Sala de Recoletos in Madrid.

From October 2021 until July, we will be part of the group of professionals who participate in the Master of Editorial Design and Production at IED Madrid.

 

This master’s degree, directed by Tres Tipos Gráficos, raises the dialogue between paper and screen, and includes the study of the different publication formats, the role of photography and illustration, the principles of composition and typographic aesthetics, but also incorporates the research and prototyping processes typical of the digital world into print media design.
