Robyn O’Neil is known for her large panoramic charcoal drawings that chronicle a post-apocalyptic world. WE: THE MASSES is a retrospective of her 20-year career on display at the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art. This project developed a visual system for the exhibition and its application.
O’Neil’s work is in public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; Dallas Museum of Art; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She hosts the weekly podcast ME READING STUFF. This exhibit marks a 20-year retrospective of her work. The project’s goals were: 1) to engage the artist’s fanbase and enable them to virtually experience the exhibit through a catalog and digital guide rather than travelling to Ft. Worth; and 2) provide in-depth analysis of the work through an extensive catalog. The design of the exhibit space connects with the viewer in both physical and digital worlds, while a large-format coffee table book provides a “deep dive” into the artist’s apocalyptic end of the world landscapes.
