StereoType: New Directions in Typography - opening reception

Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street New York, NY 10011

StereoType is a groundbreaking exhibition that presents works by an array of 14 established and up-and-coming designers from the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, France, the United States, Israel, The Netherlands, Germany, and Australia. By exploring the opportunities at the intersection of technology and design, this new breed of artists is expanding the boundaries of traditional typography and integrating elements from the fields of animation, craft, performance, nanoscience, and graffiti into their work. Curated by Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox of c2 curatorsquared, the exhibition heralds a departure from conventional typographical approaches focused on two-dimensional letters by incorporating the elements of time, movement, and the third dimension.

Featured artists and designers include: Brian Banton (Canada), Jerome Corgier (France), Design Studio Edhv (The Netherlands), Oded Ezer (Israel), Dominique Falla (Australia), Masashi Kawamura (Japan), Ji Lee (USA), Song Hyun Ju (Germany), Thomas G. Mason (USA), Petra Mrzyk and Jean-Francois Moriceau (France), Evan Roth (France), Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh (USA), Alida Sayer (UK), and Dan Tobin Smith (UK).  

Both the exhibition and graphics have been designed by Rice+Lipka Architects, New York.

This exhibition is presented by the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center.


On view September 30 - December 15, 2015.


Open daily 12:00 noon - 6:00 p.m. and late Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m.; closed on all major holidays and holiday eves. Admission is free.
