The Intersections of Typography, part 2

The second annual exhibition of the Intersections of Typography opened at Memphis College of Art in January. Students across many disciplines showcased work that highlighted typography as art form in 2D, 3D, analog and digital formats. The exhibition ran until February 2016 in the Lower Gallery of Rust Hall.

The Intersections of Typography

Typography is language visualized. It intersects all disciplines yet belongs to none. It exists to communicate, tell stories and be experienced in ways that only it can. Yet all too often, it is overlooked. This show seeks to examine typography’s flexibility and function in design and fine art disciplines.

The Intersections of Typography is a multidisciplinary show at the intersections of communication, expression and form. It is a combination of many perspectives including traditional, digital, and experimental media of 2D and 3D work. The show was held in the Lower Gallery of Rust Hall at Memphis College of Art from January 14 – Feb 6, 2015.

The show was such a success that I hope to bring it back next year. For more details, please contact me directly.
