The Poster Remediated: Anniversary exhibition of the 25th International Poster Biennale
Continuing the tradition of the Warsaw International Poster Biennale, The Poster Remediated exhibition is truly global exhibition featuring designs from Europe, the Middle East, China, Korea, and Latin and North America. The modern concept of the exhibition and the accompanying online competition was invented by Professor David Crowley, a British curator and an expert in the art of Eastern Europe who works at the Royal College of Art in London.
The Poster Remediated explores how the conventional poster is undergoing rapid transformation in an age of ubiquitous digital screens and social media. To mark its anniversary, the organizers of the International Poster Biennale have commissioned a new exhibition to explore the past, present and future of this form of graphic communication. It shows that the internet has not—as some commentators have suggested—killing off the poster. But the medium is being changed by digital technology. Sometimes this means the creation of entirely new forms of poster such as interactive billboard advertisements which address the passers-by in lively and sometimes unsettling ways.
In other settings, such as the conflicts which exploded in the Maidan in Kiev in 2013 or in Tahrir Square in Cairo in 2011, the internet has provided an up-to-date means for circulating low-tech and hand-made poster images. The remediation of the poster is not, however, a new phenomenon. The fiftieth anniversary exhibition will also feature iconic designs from recent decades which have found their ways on to cinema and television screens, the covers of books and the front pages of newspapers. Designs like ‘I am a Man’ and ‘Je Suis Charlie’ shows how posters can promote justice and human rights.
ATypI attendees will be treated to a guided tour of the exhibition led by museum staff. Afterward, refreshments will be served in the museum’s serene park.
