LECTURE / CURATORIAL TOUR / WORKSHOP - Registration

“Posterized” exhibited at the PMQ in Hong Kong is an introduction to the most influential, award-winning contemporary poster artists from Poland – Mieczysław Wasilewski, Władysław Pluta, Małgorzata Gurowska and Lex Drewinski, to name but a few.

It is a conjunction of various creative personalities: from graphic designers to illustrators and independent artists, whose work focuses around a poster as a medium. As it also was relevant in the 1960′s, such unique sharpness can only be achieved with an observant eye of an excellent poster artist.

The participants were also asked to carry out the project titled “Tribute to Hong Kong”, which is their own homage to the city and its long history. We’re hoping, that this experimental project about this glorious city will be a refreshing venture and will initiate a series of unique posters.

A series of programmes will be presented during the exhibition period: there will be a typography workshop tailor-made for kids and a poster workshop for both kids and adults. Curators will talk about the history of polish posters and how posters make graphic design a unique medium in the lectures and lead public tours.
