Private Lives Public Spaces, intimately highlights home movies and amateur films from MoMA’s collection. The words “Private Lives” vibrate in blue, like TV static, while “Public Spaces” is set in a semi-transparent frosted vinyl. By placing the two lines on opposite sides of the window, there is a subtle sense of dimensionality between them, highlighting the dichotomy between ‘private’ and ‘public’ spaces.

The exhibition was produced by the MoMA Design Studio, using Ginto Nord and MoMA Sans for all typography.

Curatorial Team: Ron Magliozzi, Brittany Shaw, Katie Trainor, Peter Williamson, and Ashley Swinnerton
