Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980

MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street
New York , NY 10019 United States

Situated between the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia’s architects responded to contradictory demands and influences, developing a postwar architecture both in line with and distinct from the design approaches seen elsewhere in Europe and beyond. The architecture that emerged—from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist “social condensers”—is a manifestation of the radical diversity, hybridity, and idealism that characterized the Yugoslav state itself. Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia’s leading architects to an…

69: Déjà Vu

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 250 South Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90012 United States

Lifestyle brand 69 is the brainchild of an anonymous Los Angeles–based designer whose non-gender and non-demographic-specific clothing exuberantly suggests ideas of freedom, inclusivity, and a more fluid future.

West of Modernism: California Graphic Design, 1975–1995

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), 5905 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036 United States

The late 20th century was a transformational period for graphic design. Questioning the increasingly rigid rules of modernism, designers pressed for greater autonomy in their work. At the same time, dizzying advances in technology upended existing design and production processes. Far from the established New York design world, California became a haven for avant-garde designers, a hub of innovation in both discourse and practice. This exhibition is part of LACMA’s Graphic Design Initiative, an interdepartmental project spearheaded by the Decorative…
