Wired Magazine

Selections from the Permanent Collection of Architecture and Design

December 19, 1997 - March 09, 1998

A selection of evocative opening spreads from Wired magazine, an innovator in high-technology print and digital media, is on view at SFMOMA this winter. The magazine layouts by internationally renowned graphic designers, printed with twenty-eight colors and often using metallic inks, were originally seen in issues of Wired magazine from 1993 to 1997 or in the Japanese or British editions of Wired. Organized by Curator of Architecture and Design Aaron Betsky, the exhibition features works from SFMOMA's permanent collection, which contains both printed and electronic examples of such digital designs.
