Library Exhibition

Artist: Wim Crouwel

On the occasion of the 80 birthday of Wim Crouwel the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, in collaboration with Municipal Museum Amsterdam, looks back on the period where he as a graphic designer, was responsible for the design of their catalogues, posters and invitations. From 1956 onward Van Abbe-director Edy de Wilde made an appeal to him. This was the beginning of a fruitfull collaboration which continued after 1964  in the Municipal Museum Amsterdam. His designs became legendary  and are still an inspiration to the generation of young graphic designers.
