The Truth About Hollis

In the mid-1990s, Stuart Bailey interviewed Richard Hollis as part of his undergraduate thesis on Modernism in the UK. He subsequently became Hollis’s assistant, working with the designer at his home over a period of two years.

The talk The Truth About Hollis – September 26, 7pm, Artists Space, New York, as part of Richard Hollis exhibition – centers on Bailey’s insight into Hollis’s approach to graphic design, and the impact felt on the discipline due to social and technological developments. Stemming from Hollis’s writings on the historical shift towards visual communication as marketing, Bailey expands on how the material qualities of Hollis’s work can serve as heuristics towards a deeper understanding of his discipline.
