Julius Klinger and Double Vision

Location Info:

The Wolfsonian-FIU
1001 Washington Ave.
Miami Beach, FL  33139
The fact that we're swimming in advertisements and design makes it hard to appreciate the art itself, so seeing it in an art museum can help reframe the craft. Tragically killed during the Holocaust, Julius Klinger was an Austrian designer who masterfully implemented simple design elements to transform modern print culture. His works will be presented in tandem with "Double Vision," a Klinger-inspired reworking of the Wolfsonian's lobby by Viennese design studio Seite Zwei. 10 a.m. Friday through April 1, 2018, at the Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-1001; wolfsonian.org. Admission costs $10.
