An exhibition showcasing 33 years of Test Match cricket photography by Patrick Eagar opens at Lord’s cricket ground in London later this month, with exhibition design by CsÃ¡ky Associates.
The group was appointed to the work without a pitch on the basis of an existing relationship between Lord’s owner Marylebone Cricket Club and CsÃ¡ky parent company Mice Group.
To accompany the design of the 200m2 exhibition space, the consultancy has also produced an 80-page, perfect bound book presenting a collection of Eagar’s work (pictured).
‘The design of the space is reflected in the book, which is modern, open and in a Swiss graphic style. It is a very simple exhibition, that tries to be quite minimal,’ says CsÃ¡ky Associates senior designer Andrew Wood-Walker.
Eagar has selected 84 prints for the exhibition, displayed across 40 panels on the first floor of the MCC Museum at Lord’s. Dividing elements will organise these into categories that correspond with those featured in the book.
The consultancy has also designed banners to promote the exhibition around the Lord’s ground.
‘Marylebone Cricket Club – 33 years and 50 Tests through the lens of Patrick Eagar’ opens on 26 May, running for six months, after which it may tour the UK.
