The much-anticipated AIGA NY event starring the quintessential jazz designer himself, Niklaus Troxler, is finally coming to the Cooper Union on June 28. An exhibition features 80 posters from Troxler’s career, while Troxler himself will describe his iconic process of marrying music and modernism, posters and passion. Appropriately, live music will twitter throughout, with Bob Stewart on tuba and Craig Harris on trombone.
Read Alice Rawsthorn‘s excellent essay about Troxler’s work, Michael Bierut‘s effusive ode to the man, including a nice curated gallery of Troxler’s posters, or buy the book, perhaps. And then throw on the Blue Note record of your choice and snag some tickets today. Dig?
