“Crossroads: 1945 to Now” identity

Exhibition identity, wayfinding, and gallery guide for Crossroads: 1945 to Now, an expansive reinstallation of the Carnegie Museum of Art’s postwar and contemporary art galleries that places the work of artists at the intersection of history and society. Crossroads takes its title from Bruce Conner’s 1976 film, a hypnotic collage of atomic bomb blasts at Bikini Atoll, and is organized into eight ‘chapters’ that highlight artists’ powerful responses to the forces shaping our world. The exhibition includes work by Louise Bourgeois, Keith Haring, Alex Katz, Ellsworth Kelly, Kerry James Marshall, Pope.L, and Cindy Sherman among many others.
