Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofiaart of Carlos Cruz-Diez’s output in the field of graphic design in the years spanning from 1930 to 2015 and primarily developed in three formats: publishing design, posters and exhibition catalogues.

 

Carlos Cruz-Diez played an important role in the development of the Venezuelan publishing industry, helping it to progress from a technical enterprise of typographers, layout editors, and printers to one where design contributed the formal and chromatic sensibility of the artist.

If there is one thing that characterizes both Carlos Cruz-Diez’s graphic design and his artistic work, it is precisely a sometimes obsessive reflection on what we call “the weight of form.” This weight is at once semantic and structural, positive and negative, liberating and oppressive.
