Modern Man

December 5, 2008

BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department faculty member James Victore has been formally recognized by one of the art world’s most prestigious institutions: he has had 10 pieces requested for the private collection of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Victore’s design work has appeared in magazines, on posters (including several for SVA) and he has often used his work to speak out about social issues like discrimination, war and the death penalty. His poster entitled Racism—created in 1993 as a response to that year’s race-driven riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn—is one of five of the newly acquired pieces that are included in MoMA’s current exhibition “Rough Cut: Design Takes a Sharp Edge,” which is on display at the museum through January 2010.
