SYD MEAD – FUTURE CITIES

The Graz Museum presents the first solo exhibition in Austria with works by Syd Mead, the visionary of utopian film worlds and futuristic design who passed away in late 2019. Syd Mead, who created groundbreaking designs for companies such as Ford, Chrysler, Philips Electronics and Sony, worked for Hollywood since the 1970s. He created both breathtaking and futuristic worlds for legendary science fiction movies (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Tron, Blade Runner, Aliens II, Mission to Mars, Elysium) that continue to have a lasting influence on film, industrial and game designers as well as architects and urban planners to this day.

SCHLOSSBERG 1982

The 1981/82 black and white photo series created by the Graz-based Slovenian/Austrian photographer Branko Lenart is probably the most extensive photographic work of the 20th and 21st centuries on Graz’s local mountain. The almost completely deserted views illustrate the intertwining of cultural and natural space. The unusual and yet familiar views allow for a new interpretation of the mountain freed from the tourist postcard view.

Unbuilt Graz

The exhibition at the Graz Museum presents a selection of unrealised architecture of the 20th century in its socio-political context. Plans such as the Scheiner high-rise department store at Jakominiplatz (1929/30), the Garden City Marienwiese (1947), the Trigon Museum in the Pfauengarten (1988-93) or the Kunsthaus in the Schloßberg (1997) are exemplary in Graz for the perpetual debate about the compatibility of modern building culture with the preservation of the historic old town.
