Roman Signer: Vernissage
Invitations for Exhibitions 1973-2008
Distributed for Scheidegger and Spiess
This vibrantly illustrated volume features a selection of cards and advertisements for 150 Roman Signer exhibitions since 1973. Each card reflects the artistic sensibilities of its era, and together the cards form a miniature historical narrative of contemporary art. Also included in Roman Signer are photographs, Signer’s sketches for potential projects, and film stills from past projects. Essayist Roland Wäspe expands upon the visual narrative with his examination of the development and dominant subject topics in Signer’s work, and how the invitation cards and materials reflect his aesthetic ideals.
An intriguing examination of contemporary art, Roman Signer: Vernissage will be an essential volume for art lovers and graphic designers alike.
