Poster for the exhibition, designed by David Reinfurt

Over the last several years, David Reinfurt has been researching the work of Muriel Cooper, who worked at MIT “in overlapping roles as a graphic designer, teacher and researcher.” Reinfurt curated selections of Cooper’s work for this exhibition from each of these three categories—her work as design director of the MIT Press, as a professor in the MIT Media Lab and as a researcher in her own right. 


Cooper’s approach to graphic design, as seen through the lens of her various roles at MIT, is questioning, sharp and inventive. “Messages and Means: Muriel Cooper at MIT” was on view from February 25 to March 28 at the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, Columbia University.
