    “Sumer And The Modern Paradigm” is an exhibition at Barcelona’s contemporary art gallery Fundació Joan Miró, and runs from 28th October 2017 to 21st January 2018. It intends explore and attempt to explain the influence of Mesopotamian art on modern artists, with a particular focus on the interwar period. The exhibition analyses work produced between the twenties and forties, takes a look at the documentation of Mesopotamian art that modern artists encountered and were inspired during this time, and looks to find the reasons for their fascination with the discoveries of ancient Near East artefacts. This relationship between between antiquity and modernity is expressed through the graphic identity of the exhibition, designed by Spanish studio Clase bcn, using a contrast of form and colour, as well as modern type and the retrospective qualities of a half-tone effect. This links a variety of printed communications and merchandise that included posters and flyers as well as tote bags and books.
