Type Matters: The Artistry of Bookbinding and Letterforms
Exhibit Dates: November 15, 2012 through January 6, 2013
Deadline to Submit Portfolio: June 25, 2012
Typography and design are so much more than the structural background behind words. With the advent of digital technology, letterforms have become an artistic medium in their own right. The ability to manipulate even the smallest parts of the letter has given us the freedom to use typography in nonlinear ways. From traditional type on paper and book to kinetic typography using digital media, this exhibit showcases the complex design instrument of our language on the printed page and beyond. The curators seek a broad variety of artwork in all media (including video) that explores the intersection between art and typography.
In general, artworks should not exceed 60” in any dimension, although exceptions may be made. There is much more space for two-dimensional artwork than there is for three- dimensional artwork in the galleries.
