Simply designed to communicate a message, posters are all too frequently the tools of advertisers. But under the direction of a keen eye and talented hands, posters have the power to spark action, elicit emotion, and join the ranks of art.
Then x Ten is an upcoming exhibit celebrating the power of the poster. Alongside classic posters from Herman Miller’s graphic design past will be ten new images created by some of the world’s top talent. Works of Don Ervin, Armin Hoffman, and John Massey will be joined by contemporaries Eda Akaltun, Sanghon Kim, and Jonathan Zawada, among others.
The show will be hosted by fortyfivedownstairs in Melbourne, Australia, from August 14-25, 2012.
