Fondation Louis Vuitton is presenting for the first time, a significant selection of works from its Collection at The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow. This exhibition, which represents the Fondation’s commitment of showcasing works by some of the world’s greatest modern and contemporary artists, is one of its most important “off-site” presentations since it opened in October 2014. The exhibition features a variety of artworks in a range of media, demonstrating the breadth of the Collection and bringing it to the widest audience.
Designer Daniel Bondarenko designed the bilingual catalogue with two contrasting styles of typography. Two weights of Idaby Maria Kharlamova (Paratype), set in one size, are used for all information in the book interior allowing the artworks to take the stage. For chapter openings and biographies, Karloff Negative(Typotheque)offers striking headlines: Cyrillics on the left for Russian text; its Latin counterpart used for English on right hand pages. Karloff Negative is the “ugly” part of Typotheque’s Karloff collection, Biľak’s take on the possibility of a conceptual typeface. Karloff Negative was designed by Peter Biľak and Pieter van Rosmalen; Cyrillic was added by Maria Doreuli in 2017.
