ZURICH ISSUE 59 Oct 2006

Museum für Gestaltung Zurich associations & events

30 August to 3 December - Japanese Posters

Japanese posters have developed in a particular way since the Second World War, as a support medium for massive economic growth.

Japanese graphic design is still highly regarded all over the world, and is characterised by an unmistakable style, graphic expressiveness and masterly printing technique.

The exhibition juxtaposes long-standing distinguished designers - including Yusaku Kamekura, Ikko Tanaka, Kazumasa Nagai and Shigeo Fukuda - together with designers from the younger generations, including Kazunari Hattori, Nagi Noda and Kenjiro Sano. Thus, "tradition and modern work confront each other in an exciting way"

The exhibition concentrates on the last 15 years, with a selection of over 150 posters on display.
