TYPOJANCHI 2011: Seoul International Typography Biennial
The Calligraphy Art Museum of Seoul Arts Centre in South Korea will host TYPOJANCHI 2011 from 30 August to 14 September 2011. The presentation, under the theme Fire Flower of East Asia, includes a main exhibition from 99 invited designers and special exhibitions from 8 designers. The visiting designers will present at a symposium and university workshops during the exhibition.
Ninety-nine designers from main East Asian countries – South Korea, China and Japan – will interact and explore the artistic values and experimental possibilities of typography. The invited designers were recommended by distinguished designers from South Korea, China and Japan, including Ahn Sang-soo the International Organising Committee Chairperson. The exhibited works are essential elements of visual communication design – mainly posters, books and typefaces. Eight honourable designers will present special exhibitions: Choi Jung-ho and Chung Byung-kyoo from South Korea; Lv Jingren, Kan Tai Keung and Xu Bing from China; and Tanaka Ikko, Asaba Katsumi and Hirano Kouga from Japan.
