2wice As Nice
We've been big fans of Abbott Miller's designs for 2wice magazine for a long time here at CR, so we can heartily recommend a new exhibition of back issues at AIGA in New York that also features another balletomane favourite, Dance Ink
The exhibition, titled Everybody Dance Now: 20 Years of Dancing in Print which was also designed by Miller, features the magazines’ collaborations with many of the world’s most innovative dancers, choreographers, and photographers.
A press release explains that "Dance Ink was conceived by its publisher Patsy Tarr as an alternative performance space, one that had the advantage of becoming a physical record of this most ephemeral art form. 2wice, its successor, continues in this tradition with a focus on editions that use the medium of print to evoke the tactile, visual and temporal qualities of performance."
As well as the publications, books, photographs, posters and artifacts related to the production of the magazines are also on show.
Everybody Dance Now: 20 Years of Dancing in Print is at AIGA, 164 Fifth Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets, New York City until May 15
that looks absolutely wicked! i love magazines that are concerned with actively promoting photography and art.
i'll be looking out for this mag!
good idea for the exhibition too with the way they are layed out, consertinered on the walls.
A great body of work - varied yet consistent, passionate with class - have to admit I'm a bit envious. Top. Love to get over to see this.
Some good work here, I love the 'Animal Issue' cover.
really beautiful. A lovely variation throughout as well.
