I am honored to have been selected to partake in this year's Chicago-based annual showcase of emerging typographic artists, Typeforce, now in their 8th year. From the website:
Every year, in collaboration with the Chicago Media Institute and Co-Prosperity Sphere, [Firebelly] curates an exhibit celebrating our city's wildly talented, emerging typographic artists and designers. The annual week-long exhibition kicks off with an opening night party that consistently pulls in a packed house.
I will be exhibiting selected pieces from a body of work that that re-envisions graphic design as a critical practice observing media control in the context of the ongoing Syrian crisis. Although originally created for that context, the work speaks to current events that pertain to notions of immigration, displacement, media control and diaspora.
Check back for photos from the show!
Opening night Feb 17th, 6-11pm
Show runs through Mar 4th, 2017.
