The work of Pentagram’s Abbott Miller is the focus of an exhibition currently on view at the Centro Roberto Garza Sada (CRGS), the new art and design center at the Universidad de Monterrey in Mexico. Miller recently created the program of environmental graphics and signage for CRGS, which was designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando and is known as the “Gate of Creation.” The show coincides with the school’s annual UDESIGN Conference, where Miller was the keynote speaker and led a special workshop for designers. The exhibition remains on view through April, and looks ahead to Miller’s upcoming book, Design and Content, to be released in May.
Titled An Exhibition Is a Room with a Plot, the show encompasses Miller’s designs for identities, environments, books, magazines, products, and digital media, including recent projects like patterns for Knoll and Formica, and iPad apps for 2wice. The exhibition is presented in two of the CRGS Galleries, glass-fronted cubes located just inside the massive void at the heart of Ando’s building.
