Out of the Box – Graphic design through the eyes of professionals is accompanying exhibition of the 28th International Biennial of Graphic Design in Brno 2018.
The display case as a symbol of a museum exhibition turns in the Out of the Box show into an open exhibition space that is appropriated by guest artists from creative disciplines associated with graphic design, in different ways sharing the graphic design subject. Each display case is presenting a personal attitude and a specific selection regarding a particular artist or designer, their production, theory, curatorship, collecting activities, photographs, visual art, architecture, design or fashion. These small displays with comments make up personal statements about contemporary graphic design, from many of its perspectives.
Out of the Box thus actually stages several exhibitions in one, a number of different and surprising approaches reflecting the interests and output of the artists involved. The exhibition resembles a scattered mosaic offering facts and visual stimuli in many forms. The “curators” of the individual display cases will include figures such as Lars Harmsen, editor of the Slanted magazine and member of the international jury of this year’s Biennial, graphic design historian Marta Sylvestrová, curator Monika Čejková and graphic designer Fraser Muggeridge, as well as the Instagram profile Posters of Prague and many others.
