Olson Kundig: Anthology

Location Omaha, Nebraska
Exhibit Designer Alan Maskin

Olson Kundig: Anthology is the firm’s first comprehensive exhibition and showcases the artistic, historic, and cultural influences that have shaped the firm’s creative process and practice over the past five decades. The KANEKO retrospective, which provides a sampling of the design efforts of the firm’s partners—Jim Olson, Tom Kundig, Kirsten R. Murray and Alan Maskin—will highlight over 50 years of creative production.

The exhibition also focuses on Olson Kundig’s long-running traditions—its internship program, all-office project critiques and history of artist collaborations—as well as recent firm-wide design experiments like [storefront] Olson Kundig, a series of month-long exhibitions and community partnerships. Large-scale photo displays and hand-crafted models provide visitors with a visual survey of Olson Kundig’s signature projects while video interviews and a collection of ephemera contributed by each of the 120-person staff offers a glimpse of the values and persona of the practice today.

The firm’s collaborative spirit is further illustrated in “What Would You Do?,” an interactive display that represents the firm’s weekly all-office project critique. For this installation, exhibit visitors will be asked to share their thoughts about a series of design projects on display, becoming a part of Olson Kundig’s design dialogue.
