Look Both Ways: The Illicit Between Image and Information (2019)
August 24 through September 21,2019 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery.
Lin Jinging’s work One Hundred Percent (2019)
in this work, Lin replaces the material description in a strip of commonplace, mass-produced clothing care labels with the word fantasy.
It was included in the School of Visual Arts exhibition Look Both Ways: The Illicit Liaison Between Image and Information. In the installation work, Lin replaces the material with the word fantasy in a strip of commonplace, mass-produced clothing care labels.
The exhibition was curated by Debbie Millman, chair of the MPS Branding program at SVA. The exhibition brought together a wide range of typographic work from 60 individual artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Shepard Fairey, Dave Eggers, Deborah Kass, Jenny Holzer, Miranda July, Kim Gordon, and more, from Millman’s personal collection and beyond
Look Both Ways showcased the many ways in which words, text and information influence art, design, literature and music. Bold typographic expression has become the cultural currency of communication and the centerpiece of connection. Objects and experiences all around us now contain an inscription, an impression or a point of view. Our bodies, clothing, public events, sports, politics and even the products we consume have given people, by way of social media and the Internet, an instantaneous way to communicate globally. On an intimately personal level, tattoos have assumed the atavistic power that religious amulets once had to convey messages about ourselves, with the immediate power of images and words. This dynamic is evident today in all disciplines of visual communications, reflecting the condition of our culture.
