In 2011, MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design acquired 23 digital fonts, a landmark addition to the Museum’s collection. The fonts were first encountered by MoMA visitors in the exhibition Standard Deviations: Types and Families in Contemporary Design, and went to join other contemporary graphic design acquisitions such as the @ sign and, later on, the Google Maps Pin. As part of a new exhibition series with the Hyundai Card Design Library in Seoul, Korea, MoMA senior curator Paola Antonelli has organized three capsule exhibitions that highlight new frontiers in contemporary design and encourage international dialogue. The first exhibition, Digital Typefaces, opened in Seoul in October 2014 and is on view until February 15, 2015.
