Typopassage is an innovative museum project which exhibits typographic design spanning from the initial concept to the final stage. Curated by the design studio bauer konzept & gestaltung this freely accessible exhibition series runs throughout the year. It includes three events which present experimental type designs by young and well-established graphic artists at Vienna’s MuseumsQuarter, a grand museum complex which sits on the gangway between square 1 and square 2. The kick-off event included an impressive ceiling design by graphic artist Alex Trochut from Barcelona.
The second exhibition showed the playful works of Ariane Spanier from Berlin, followed by a remarkable presentation of Typodarium 2011, a tear-off calendar for daily inspiration through typography.
The upcoming exhibition will present the Czech-Swiss collective welcometo.as (Lausanne / Davis-California). In their joint projects, the two designers Adam Machacek and Sébastien Bohner connect influences from the Netherlands, the UK, Switzerland and the USA. Their manifold, often excessive baroque works combine experimental typography, illustration and photography.
Opening: November 26, 2010, 6 p.m.
through March 2011
