Notes from the Archive:
This exhibition poster is from one of the ten stops on the U.S. tour of the Memphis exhibition, beginning in Memphis, TN and ending at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. The exhibition included over four hundred of the original drawing/renderings submitted to Memphis for consideration and over sixty examples of Memphis furniture, lighting, glass, silver, and ceramics. The designer for the overall poster design is unknown, but the pattern used is similar to the pattern chosen for the cover of the Barbara Radice book, Memphis, Research, Experiences, Results, Failures and Successes of New Design
. The Memphis/Milano logo on the poster was designed by Christoph Radl and the pattern "Rete" was designed by Ettore Sottsass for Memphis.
