Text Me: How We Live in Language
September 16, 2017 - February 4, 2018
TEXT ME: How We Live in Language is an exploration of a subject that has long been of interest to me and that I have explored in other aspects of my personal professional work, from art making to Design Matters. The exhibition demonstrates how bold typographic expression has become the cultural currency of communication and the centerpiece of connection and probes the formative effect of typography on the way we live from social media to tattoos to way-finding signage to fine art, fast moving consumer goods, clothing, household goods and decoration.
Over 50 leading artists and designers will participate in this exhibition, including Paula Scher, Elle Luna, Ken Carbone, Louise Fili, Shepard Fairey, Deborah Kass, Seymour Chwast, Edwin Schlossberg, Neil Gaiman, Brian Singer, Allison Bechdel, Adam J. Kurtz, Stephen Doyle, Stefan Sagmeister, Jessica Walsh, Milton Glaser, Cary Leibowitz, Lawrence Weiner, Lisa Congdon, Oliver Jeffers, and more.
The exhibition will be curated by Debbie Millman, designer, writer, educator, brand strategist and host of the podcast Design Matters.

Opening February 18, 2018
"Play is a fundamental part of life; it is a biological, social, cognitive necessity for individual children, but also has benefits for society and the human species.” - Declaration on the Importance of Play (2014)
If Atlanta is to be a great city in which to live, designing great places for children to play must become a top priority. MODA’s upcoming exhibition, Designing a Playful City, will explore design for play in this fascinating exhibition.
The exhibition will be curated by Cynthia Gentry, Founding Director of PlayAtlanta and member of the Board of Directors of the International Play Association.
