Walker Without Walker
Walker Without Walker is an examination of design within the world of fine art—or more specifically, the in-house design studio of Minneapolis's Walker Art Center, one of the leading contemporary art museums in the country.
We examined the materials and considered what would happen if any evidence of "art" was taken away from the designed matter—essentially, subtracting the Walker museum from the Walker studio. The result is an overwhelming graphic array that captures the multivalent applications of the Walker's design. As the studio's work is so challenging to look at comprehensively, both due to its prolificacy and commitment to versatile Modernist practices, we wanted to reflect that experience in this presentation.
