Besides producing graphics for the Neue Galerie’s many exhibitions, Duggal also prints the portrait “Woman in Gold” on Giclee paper for sale to the public at the Neue Galerie store.
Noted as the only person ever painted more than once by Gustav Klimt, Adele Bloch-Bauer is the subject of the Neue Galerie New York’s latest Exhibition, “Gustav Klimt and Adele Bloch- Bauer: The Woman in Gold” which ran from April 2, 2015 - September 7, 2015. Painted in 1907, Adele Bloch-Bauer I, was acquired for Neue Galerie New York in 2006. At the time of the acquisition, the museum’s President and co-founder, Ronald S. Lauder, stated: “With this dazzling painting, Klimt created one of his greatest works of art.” During the years that Klimt worked on this one renowned commission, he had spent time in Ravenna Italy, where he visited the sixth-century church of San Vitale and was mesmerized by the richly decorated Byzantine mosaics, describing them as of “unprecedented splendor.” This, his first portrait of Adele Bloch- Bauer incorporates jewel-like areas that resemble semi-precious stones and layers of lustrous gold and silver, as inspired by the mosaics that fascinated him.
This exhibition coincides with the opening of the Weinstein Company and BBC Films’ historical drama “Woman in Gold,” starring Helen Mirren as Adele Bloch-Bauer’s niece Maria Altmann, and Ryan Reynolds as lawyer Randol Schoenberg. The film opened in U.S. theaters on April 1, 2015 and is based upon the incredible true story of how Altmann, working in collaboration with Schoenberg, successfully sued the Austrian Government for the return of five Klimt paintings seized by the Nazis from the Bloch-Bauer family townhouse in Vienna during World War II. Rounding out the exhibition at Neue Galerie New York are approximately 50 works, including Adele Bloch-Bauer I, paintings, related drawings, vintage photographs, decorative arts, as well as archival material. Duggal Visual Solutions has been working with Neue Galerie New York for a number of years and is very proud of our part in the exhibition graphics for this new, important exhibition.
METROPOLITAN THE MUSEUM OF ART
Among its outstanding collections, the Met’s American Wing is home to masterpieces of 18th century furniture. Within this superlative collection are select pieces from the workshop of Duncan Phyfe (1770 – 1854). Phyfe would become America’s most popular furniture maker. From 1805 until roughly 1840, he succeeded at making fine pieces of furniture his patrons would otherwise have had to order abroad. Among these is an ottoman, which was in need of restoration prior to being exhibited. Duggal was tasked with recreating an ornate brass trim and walnut inlay. To save restoration experts the laborious task of inlaying walnut piece by piece, Duggal’s fabrication department proposed, and successfully executed the solution by laser cutting the brass trim, and raster engraving the walnut for a seamless fit.
The largest art museum in the U.S. and main attraction on Manhattan’s Museum Mile, The Metropolitan Museum of Art surpasses its mission to “collect, preserve, study, exhibit, and stimulate appreciation for and advance knowledge of works of art that collectively represent the broadest spectrum of human achievement at the highest level of quality, all in the service of the public and in accordance with the highest professional standards.” The museum’s permanent collection of more than 2 million works is complemented by a continual rotation of new exhibitions. Simply put, the Met is a must for tourists and New Yorkers alike. Duggal is proud of its longstanding relationship and privileged to have contributed to several exhibits.
Grand Design: Pieter Coecke van Aelst and Renaissance Tapestry (October 8, 2014–January 11, 2015) 19 grand tapestries designed by Renaissance master Pieter Coecke van Aelst (1502–1550) and woven for the likes of Emperor Charles V and Henry VIII of England highlight Grand Design in the medium. As part of the exhibition, Duggal reproduced Coecke’s awe-inspiring designs on wide format, free-hanging canvas and wallpaper graphics, allowing viewers to get closer and experience the details and intricacies of masterful Renaissance artwork.

Honors Design and Typography Legend Louise Fili
From wine bottles and jam jars to bakeries, restaurants and cafés themselves, the elegant designs of Louise Fili are all around you. School of Visual Arts (SVA) recently brought the entirety of Fili’s influential work to its Gramercy Gallery, awarding Fili the 28th Annual Masters Series Exhibition. Designed and produced by chair of 3D Design, Kevin O’Callaghan, The Masters Series: Louise Fili was the first-ever retrospective of Fili’s 40-plus-year career. In addition to a vast portfolio of food packaging and restaurant branding, Fili has created more than 2,000 book covers in various fields, and authored or co-authored more than 20 books on design and typography. Her past and present clients include Hyperion Books, Rizzoli, Sarabeth’s, Tate’s Bake Shop, Tiffany & Co., Williams-Sonoma and the U.S. Postal Service. “It was a painstakingly wonderful experience to comb through decades of work and revisit each design individually as a part of the big picture,”
Fili said. “To gain a wide-angle perspective of what I’ve been doing this whole time and see it all live together in one exhibition was truly amazing.” An SVA alumwho has garnered countless awards and accolades, Fili continues to give back to the design community as a longtime faculty member of SVA’s BFA and MFA Design departments. Duggal Visual Solutions is honored and proud to have had the opportunity to work directly with Fili to reproduce her body of work for The Masters Series. “Working with Duggal to bring Kevin’s exhibition design to life was fantastic,” Fili said. “They took the time to walk us through each step, from modeling to preliminary tests to the final products. It was so exciting to see these typically small designs reproduced on a large scale. I also toured Duggal’s production facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which was extremely impressive.”

INTREPID S E A A I R AND SPACE MUSEUM
Home of The Enterprise
As the original prototype orbiter, space shuttle Enterprise was the heart of the space shuttle era and NASA’s Space Shuttle Program. Today, Enterprise is the centerpiece of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion, a multi-sensory experience with 17 exhibit zones featuring photos, film, audio and interactive displays. Visitors learn about Enterprise’s storied history before walking under and around the orbiter itself. Duggal is proud to collaborate with the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum and Benchmark Graphics to build a beautiful home for Enterprise. Mark Wenger worked directly with the Intrepid and Benchmark teams in creating custom wallpaper and display pieces for several areas of Space Shuttle Pavilion. A large panorama of Enterprise flying over Manhattan welcomes visitors to the exhibit room for a fun and imaginative history lesson that ends with the opportunity to “Sponsor a Star” in support of NASA’s iconic first space shuttle.

AI WEIWEI ACCORDING TO WHAT?
INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY
In April, RKF announced the sale of an 11,000-square-foot space at 250 Bowery to ICP, who confirmed the new space will be ready for a Fall 2015 move-in. The Bowery has seen a renaissance in the last decade with a boom of new luxury apartments, restaurants, boutiques and galleries. “ICP is a leader in the contemporary art world,” said Atria Properties’ Jane McVerry, who represented ICP in the transaction. “When it came time to look for a new location for the
historic and revered organization, the Bowery— with its eclectic mix of galleries, the NewMuseum and the Bowery Hotel—was an obvious choice.” Duggal is the preferred print and graphics provider for ICP, partnering in everything from their Lecture Series and Infinity Awards gala to the Picture Windows project. With visual consultant Hillary Altman leading the way, we are proud of our recent work in establishing the visual presence of the new museum.
The creative genius of controversial Chinese artist Ai WeiWei spans sculpting, photography, filmmaking, architecture and activism. His work explores hot- button issues in culture, history, politics and the significance of expression. Ai WeiWei: According to What? at the historic Brooklyn Museum took viewers through the complex mind of the world’s most provocative artists. The exhibition features gripping imagery accompanied by a heart-wrenching installation of salvaged rubble and items from the devastating 2008 Sichuan earthquake.
Duggal is proud of both our relationship with the Brooklyn Museum and being entrusted by them to be a part of this riveting exhibition. Marina Stark and Faye Iwata consulted with museum curators to produce more than 6,000 square feet of gallery-quality wallpaper displaying Ai WeiWei’s artwork, including the two-room earthquake installation and a complete transformation of museum staircases into visual galleries.
Israeli-born artist, architect and designer Ghiora Aharoni’s approach brings a blend of artistry and technology to his remarkable work, which often combines natural and industrial materials. His ability to mix a variety of materials into coherent and poignant work is apparent in Missives, artwork he created and exhibited recently at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai, India. Missives was inspired by the discovery of a trove of love letters written by his mother, who passed away 20 years ago. Four years ago, a childhood friend of Aharoni’s found an old shoebox containing the letters and brought it to him without saying what was inside. It was only after he finished reading the first letter and saw the name signed at the end that he realized they had been written by his own mother in the 1950s, to a boy in Jerusalem. Many of the installations in the exhibit featured over-scaled excerpts of the letters printed on crumpled Japanese paper with a collage of vintage photographs collected by the artist during his travels to India. “This installation is an investigation into the essence of memory and sentimentality,” explains Aharoni. The artist didn’t want the letters, written in Hebrew, to be fully legible so he had them reprinted on Japanese paper and crumpled them, preserving only random phrases and their emotion. “The paper with incomplete text becomes a metaphor for concealed feelings,” he explains. In printing them on fragile Japanese papers, they are also transformed into precious objects, amplifying the emotion within the work. Aharoni, in placing the reprints over vintage photographs suggests the nature of collective memory. Some of the letters, or portions thereof, are also embroidered onto phulkaris, ceremonial Indian shawls. He feels the phulkaris have a particular significance. “On one hand, they embody the aspirations of a young girl;
the Indian woman for whom the phulkari would have been part of her wedding dowry, and on the other, they also represent my mother’s desire for the object of her affection.” Whatever his medium, the works that comprise the Missives exhibition develop a narrative that speaks to history, symbolism, imagination, and longing. The artist also believes that the works symbolize his love for India. “When I first landed in Delhi I felt at home in a place I’d never been to. I’ve travelled through the country in the last 10 years, clicking images and collecting vintage photographs which comprise an extensive collection of memories.” His mixing of materials suggest not only the artist’s strong imagination but prompts viewers to expand their own, to be open to the extraordinary romanticism woven into the exhibit. His mother wrote the letters a long time ago so does he notice a change in the notion of love when he reads them today? “Desire is timeless,” he says. For our part in Missives, Duggal Visual Solutions printed the enlarged snippets of Aharoni’s mother’s writings on paper provided by the artist. We’re very proud to have contributed to this important collection conceived by our esteemed client, Mr. Aharoni. The artist himself, in the beautiful hardcover catalogue that accompanied the exhibit says, “A special thanks is dedicated to Duggal Visual Solutions in New York... whose technical expertise and support were essential to the exhibition.” Missives is but one project in the artist’s impressive portfolio of work. We urge you to explore additional examples of Mr. Aharoni’s extraordinary talent and skill.

TRIBUTE TO FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT GUGGENHEIM
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is a staple of New York City culture and a marvel of modern architecture. Visitors from around the world travel to New York with the Guggenheim high on their list of must-see attractions. Equally fascinating as its engaging art exhibitions is the story behind the construction of the Guggenheim itself, best told on the museum’s website: “In June 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright received a letter from Hilla Rebay, the art advisor to Solomon R. Guggenheim, asking the architect to design a new building to house Guggenheim’s four-year-old Museum of Non-Objective Painting. The project evolved into a complex struggle pitting the architect against his clients, city officials, the art world, and public opinion. Both Guggenheim and Wright would die before the building’s 1959 completion. The resultant achievement, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, testifies not only to Wright’s architectural genius, but to the adventurous spirit that characterized its founders.” Undoubtedly Wright’s most recognized masterpiece, the Guggenheim pays tribute to its architectural father with A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian House and Pavilion.
Duggal Visual Solutions had the honor of being entrusted by the Guggenheim to help refresh the permanent exhibition, which was originally installed in 2012, to keep the Wright archives vibrant, engaging, and timeless. A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian House and Pavilion is a historically significant New York experience, chronicling for museumgoers and Guggenheim supporters the creative process behind what has become a Fifth Avenue icon.

Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition at EET Y
92nd Street Y is one of New York City’s most storied cultural institutions. Since 1939, 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center has bridged poets and writers to their readers to ensure that there will always be a venue for the next great creative mind to blossom. The Poetry Center was built on the motto “Love the Words,” which legendary poet Dylan Thomas asked of his actors before the 1953 premiere of Under Milk Wood at 92Y. Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition honors the influential Welsh poet’s life and work. Celebrating the centenary of Thomas’s birth, Dylan Thomas in America gathers photos, letters, postcards, manuscripts and drawings from archives around the world to chronicle the great Welsh poet’s legendary trips to the United States between 1950 and his tragic death in 1953. A collaboration with Duggal Visual Solutions, this exhibition is made possible by a generous gift from the Sidney E. Frank Foundation, as well as support from the British Council and Welsh government. Duggal is a proud partner of Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition, offering design consultation and coordinating all visual elements and logistics for the exhibition. After producing 92Y’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2013, Duggal was entrusted to again provide studio photography of original documents, along with scanning, retouching, printing, framing and banner graphics.
THE GALLERY @SPRING
NYC Fashion History Through LIFE Archives As LIFE magazine celebrated its 80th anniversary in Summer 2016, the Gallery@Spring featured images from original LIFE photographers who captured the fashion icons from the 1940s to 1970s, including Audrey Hepburn, Eartha Kitt, Jessica Tandy, Marlon Brando, Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt and Marilyn Monroe. Our Role Duggal fine art manager Hillary Altman and production coordinator Jonathan Springer consulted with Spring Studios to produce the prints for The Gallery@Spring, including scanning from the original negatives, image restoration, framing and printing (both color and black and white).

A commitment to artistry and creative use of the latest retail technology take Fabergé’s storied history to new heights – or sizes – in an Easter adventure. Millions of New Yorkers and tourists alike were on the Big Egg Hunt, with nearly 300 dazzling giant egg sculptures placed throughout the five boroughs. The eggs, designed by world-renowned creatives and brands, house beacon technology chips that interact with egg hunters on their mobile phones via the Big Egg Hunt app on iTunes or Google Play. More than $125,000 worth of exclusive Fabergé jewelry was up for grabs, and the designer eggs themselves were auctioned at Sotheby’s at the end of the hunt. All proceeds benefited the Elephant Family and Studio in a School charities.
LANDSCAPE SEEN & IMAGINED
Clifford Ross’s work is immersive and fascinating on every tier of the way humans interact with art. Ross, the New York-based artist perhaps most known for his black-and-white Hurricane series capturing wind-churned waters while tethered to shore, is a multimedia mastermind who has been featured in MoMA, the Met, the Guggenheim and overseas. His work, Landscape Seen & Imagined, was on display at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA). Landscape Seen & Imagined is a magnificently large-scale survey spanning two buildings, six galleries and an outdoor courtyard.
The centerpiece, a towering 25-foot-high, 114-foot-wide photograph printed on raw wood, spans the entire length of the museum’s tallest gallery and would dwarf even several viewers standing on each other’s shoulders. Ross has worked with Duggal and called on us to execute his grand vision for the unconventional medium. Duggal’s wide format team produced 90 panels, each matching perfectly in both size and visual flow. The end result is easily one of the largest museum-quality photographs you will ever see.

WALTER IOOSS X AIR JORDAN OUTDOOR CHICAGO PHOTO EXHIBITION
Out of thin air comes a gift to the city of Chicago, a photographic celebration of one of the greatest athletes of all time. Chicagoans, basketball fans and sneaker heads of all ages can relive Michael Jordan’s eminence through the photography of Walter Iooss in Open Air, a free outdoor exhibition on display at the Field Museum. Sponsored by Nike in collaboration with the Chicago Park District, Open Air features 30 of Iooss’ most iconic images representing 30 years of the Air Jordan brand. Iooss, perhaps the world’s most recognized sports photographer, has shot our generation’s transcendent athletes: Derek Jeter, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Muhammad Ali to name a few. And then of course there’s His Airness, Michael Jordan, whose prolific career is best encapsulated visually through Iooss’ photos. Jordan is the pinnacle by which every star athlete is measured today, and Iooss was with him through every step (and takeoff) of his literal and figural ascension.
Iooss also had an insider’s perspective of Jordan’s life off the court, publishing never- before-seen portraits alongside thoughts and observations from MJ himself in the 1993 New York Times #1 bestseller Rare Air: Michael on Michael. “I couldn’t take a bad photo of him,” Iooss recalls. “He was always so aware; never flinched. He had an uncanny 360 sense of everything that was going on around him.” On display fromMemorial Day through Labor Day, Open Air is the kind of experience that gives you goosebumps. The significance of these images, coupled with Jordan’s 13 seasons and six championships in Chicago, is history in its highest form. It is a public celebration in a city that bursts with energy and inspiration in summer. Duggal congratulates Walter Iooss, who collaborated with Duggal as we produced durable, direct-to-Dibond, UV-printed pieces optimized for the outdoor Open Air exhibition. Here’s to reliving Michael Jordan’s magnificent career through the work of a truly inspiring photographer.
THE BERLIN METROPOLIS
AT NEUE GALERIE
MoMA PS1 is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States. An exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, MoMA PS1 devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world. In Summer 2016, the institution celebrates its 40th anniversary with a full lineup of exhibitions and events. Duggal was privileged to work with MoMA PS1 in creating a rare opportunity for the public to revisit a modern master of conceptualism and performance art. Duggal’s Brian Renaldo led our production team as we reproduced more than 1,200 prints from Vito Acconci’s archive ranging in size from 20×30 inches to mere centimeters. Automating a project that would have been nearly impossible for human hands to cut individually, our cutting edge flatbed printing and cutting technology enabled us to meet exact specifications, with perfect organization, in high volume, on quick turnaround.
Highlighted in an exhibit at the Neue Gallerie, The Berlin Metropolis, were more than 300 works from the greatest artists of the Weimar Republic, encompassing all of the color and chaos that defined a short era in German history. Organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, Professor of Art History at the Martin-Luther Universität Halle- Wittenberg, the exhibit was designed chronologically to mirror the development of Berlin. Our Role We at Duggal are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with the esteemed Neue Gallerie, and to have provided a variety of print graphics for this remarkable exhibition, including magic canvas wall murals, gallery Plexi-mounted prints and CAD cut wall text.
JULIAN LENNON HORIZON
Julian Lennon’s photography exhibit HORIZON was at the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery in Chelsea and traveled worldwide thereafter. A musician, photographer and philanthropist, Lennon is deeply committed to the well being of all species and the health of our planet and promotes several endeavors through his organization White Feather Foundation. No doubt the undercurrents of Julian’s journey in life, as the first son of one of the most admired and tragically lost artists on the planet, John Lennon, lead him to a fair share of soul-searching. Combine that with a heart full of artistic skill, poetic yearning, empathy and compassion and what we have in Julian is a truly multi-disciplinary artist whose connection with the world touches sundry chords. Duggal’s retouching, printing, and mounting teams worked together to make this exhibit the success that it was. Fine Art Account Manager Hillary Altman at Duggal has worked closely with Julian for over five years and it is thrilling for Hillary and all of us at Duggal to see this remarkable artist progress as he has, bringing incredible beauty and warmth to his pictures.

LARS JAN HUMAN AQUARIUM
During development of the performance tank, Jan captured images for the Quaternary Suite. He then partnered with Chessa Ferro of GUS Group Inc. and Duggal Visual Solutions to bring another element to the exhibition, a collection of eight LED “light circumferences” with images of the performers. The frameless, backlit acrylic pieces required months of fabrication and prototyping before the final product was delivered, a challenge that Jan describes rather simply.
“Our world just doesn’t work that well in nothing but curves,” he told the Creator’s Project.
Despite the degree of difficulty, Jan and Duggal were able to create flawless spheres of light.
The beauty of Holoscenes is that it mirrors the underlying complexity of a hot-button issue with equally complex artistic brilliance. “Artist Lars Jan has done that rare thing: created something that feels entirely new,” Los Angeles Magazine says. “Jan’s goal is not only to create unforgettable art but to capsize our attention, before we are literally capsized.”

NEW YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY TATTOOED
In the New York Historical Society exhibition, Tattooed New York, the deep roots of body art and tattoo culture in New York have been traced back three centuries. The Native American Haudenosaunee nation (Iroquois), from what is now known as the state of New York, were among the first documented communities with a well established practice of the art form. The exhibition opens with Colonial era anthropological texts, handwritten notes, and drawings dating back to the 1700s. European settlers created the documents in an attempt to describe and visualize the healing powers, spiritual meaning, life event, and identity marking characteristics of the practice. The pure artistry of the art form in the 21st century is captured in six large-scale Vibrachrome photographs printed by Duggal Visual Solutions. Hardy Rosenstein of Duggal worked closely with Marcela Gonzalez of the New York Historical Society to produce the stunning, frameless images which present bodies as canvases against black backdrops. The backs of human figures photographed from the knees, hips, or waist up, reveal full back tattoos that in some cases extend into full sleeve tattoos, down to mid-thigh, or gracefully crest over the lower back. The timeless magic of body art and tattoos, presented in Tattooed New York, is quite astonishing, and appears to be a truly global art form that continues to grow, evolve and never lose its charm.
60 DUGGAL AND DUBAI PHOTOGRAPHER SEND VIBRACHROME ARTWORK INTO ORBIT
“To me, a flower symbolizes the beauty of life,” Dr. Chadha said. “Well, I can’t give you a flower to take to space, but I would like to give you these pictures of flowers that I took from around the world so that when you look at them–even in space–you get that feeling and truly experience ‘your world.’” In June 2017, Dr. Chadha was an honorary guest at Star City during the welcoming home of the ISS Expedition 49-50 astronauts. Along with the five photographs that stay on the space station, he also donated a copy of his book, Visions of Nature, and a hard drive loaded with 500 of his images as gifts to Star City’s Yuri A. Gagarin State Scientific Research-and- Testing Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC). “What Dr. Chadha has accomplished is truly remarkable,” said Jerry Ibaran, a longtime Duggal associate who collaborated with the artist to produce his space-bound work on vivid, lightweight Vibrachrome. “It’s not every day that you get to see your work reach literally astronomical success. We support his vision and are proud to be his production partner.”
Dubai-based photographer and Duggal Visual Solutions client, Dr. Hersh Chadha, is giving new meaning to “out of this world” artwork. As we speak, Dr. Chadha’s beautiful photographs of flowers are with three astronauts in the International Space Station, making the Indian photographer the first person ever to organize a permanent photography exhibition in space. “Photography is a great medium of expression, and my purpose of doing this was to let the human beings who live on the Space Station for so many months still be connected to Mother Earth,” Dr. Chadha said. The backstory behind the phenomenal feat is that Dr. Chadha first became inspired to send pictures to space more than 15 years ago at Harvard, where a fellow business school student spoke of her late father, Stuart Allen Roosa, the command module pilot for Apollo 14. Going on two decades later, Dr. Chadha’s goal was realized as Col. Valery Korzun from Star City in Moscow arranged to have five of the photographer’s images onboard ISS Expedition 49-50 in 2016.
