Our sometime-Midwest stringer Emily Burton alerts us to “Graphic Content: Contemporary and Modern/Art and Design,” a huge show currently being mounted by the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati. Rotating galleries will devote serious space to Ohio-based midcentury designers and painters, contrasting them with works and installations by contemporary artists. The current show is apparently a winner: Charley Harper and Malcolm Grear vs. Ryan McGinness. Since you’ll remember Harper (above) for his collaboration with Todd Oldham (scroll down) for the textile patterns in Oldham’s signature La-Z Boy line, you’ll see it’s fitting, then, that Oldham designed the exhibition. The current combo’s up through February 26, 2007.
