I Don’t Know Her Name But I Know Her Work
This exhibition will run from 1 November to 5 February.
'I Don't Know Her Name, But I Know Her Work' is a display of graphic design by current students of Central Saint Martins along with work from alumni and staff of one of its predecessor colleges, the Central School of Arts and Crafts.
This display coincides with The London Transport Museum exhibition Poster Girls: A Century of Art and Design, which features many female designers who studied or taught at the Central School. Current graphic design students have each selected a piece of work from the Central Saint Martins Museum & Study Collection designed by one of the Central school designers featured in Poster Girls, and made new work in response.
This new work is influenced by the methods and materials used in the designs selected from the Museum, as well as the wider context surrounding these designs. As with the Poster Girls exhibition, a particular concern is the lack of representation of women in graphic design history. Students taking part in this project are questioning the lack of diversity in graphic design history and calling for a more inclusive approach.
