The first showcase of this exhibition took place in the city of Uslan, Korea in October 2021, as a part of the Oesol Hangeul festival. The effective exposition installed in public space gave the possibility of connecting with large audience. It gathered artists, graphic designers and typographers from design schools from all over the world.
It is a great pleasure that this year’s edition of the exhibition made its way to Central Europe and we can present it in Retroavangarda Gallery in Warsaw. The exhibition presents various languages, cultures, ways of putting down symbols and visualizing content. With this variety comes a coherent message of interaction and dialogue – so needed and valuable nowadays. The visitors can acquaint themselves with different cultures as well as up-to-date worldwide trends in typography.
