Dan Friedman: Radical Modernist

Article *
Dan Friedman’s diversity of visual material is evident in Dan Friedman: Radical Modernist, on view October 1 – December 3 in the Frederick Layton Gallery at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, with an Opening Reception and Talk by exhibit designer Christopher Pullman Friday, September 30, 6 p.m.

Friedman, a design pioneer working across various media, sought to create, delight and engage with his designs, furniture and more. His legendary work is featured in this comprehensive exhibit, making its Midwest debut at MIAD.

Viewers experience his unique vision, and contributions to graphic design and the broader realm of the visual arts. Highlighted in the exhibit are Friedman’s groundbreaking typography, eccentric furniture and playfully-subversive 3D objects, which were integral to both American street culture and global experimental design.

This event is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., MondaySaturday.
