Celebrating 'On Language'
Five years and well over two hundred contributors later, the On Language column has become a showcase for contemporary typography. The New York Times Magazine is proud to announce an exhibition of these works: Curated over the years by Kristina DiMatteo, Gail Bichler, Leo Jung, Hilary Greenbaum, Cathy Gilmore-Barnes, Aviva Michaelov and Robert Vargas, the show includes contributions from Ed Fella, Marian Bantjes, Tauba Auerbach, James Victore, Karel Martens, Alex Trochut, Kevin Lyons and many, many more.
"Wordplay: The lettering of 'On Language'" opens on Thursday, April 22, at The New York Times Building, 620 8th Avenue, 7th floor. RSVP is required to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We just RSVP'd -- hope to see you there as well!
