In this conversation, MMA curator Kim Benzel takes us back to the dawn of writing in the Near East and graphic designer Michael Bierut brings us up to the moment as we look at how words and images work together to tell stories in ancient and contemporary design.
SPARK with Julie Burstein:
This fast-paced cabaret-style series explores vital cultural issues through the lens of the Met. Each program gathers artists and thought leaders to engage in unscripted, surprising and engaging conversation.
