Dan Friedman: Radical Modernist

In 1994, Yale University Press published Dan Friedman’s Radical Modernism. This is the catalogue from the 2005 exhibition curated by Friedman of his own work before his death in 1995. The work is colorful and delightful, the embodiment of Friedman’s idea that “We should return to a belief in a radical spirit—the idea that design is something that can help improve society and people’s condition.” It’s also got a hidden timeline that we only just found now. A perfect tease that leaves us wanting to know more.
