Selby Gallery I & II  STEREOTYPE - New directions in typography

August 14–September 16, 2015. Free Public Lecture by Designer Brian Banton, Wednesday, September 2, 7:00 pm.

Stereotype: New directions in typography, opening at Selby Gallery at the Ringling College of Art and Design on August 14, is a groundbreaking exhibition presenting works by fourteen established and up-and-coming designers and artists from the UK, Japan, France, the United States and elsewhere. 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, nano-science and graffiti into their work. It heralds a departure from conventional typographical approaches focused on two-dimensional letters by embracing added dimensions--space and time–-as well as the qualities and character of the digital and experiential worlds. This exhibition was organized for BSA Space, (home of the Boston Society of Architects and BSA Foundation), by Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox of c2-curator squared. There will be a free public opening on Friday, August 21 from 5-7 pm and a curators talk on Monday, August 24 at 11:30 am.

The exhibition will travel to several locations around the U.S. with the Ringling College of Art and Design the only Florida venue. Admission is free and open to the public.
