Strangers in Art

re-neighbor-06

It’s always a pleasure to create work for art-related events and this time we had the pleasure of working for the Center of Modern Art Łaźnia (which translates as “bathhouse”) in Gdańsk to design a poster for an exhibition When Is a Neighbor a Stranger? The exhibition examines the phenomenon of art in public spaces (that is art which is both a neighbor and a stranger, which I’m sure you’ve gotten already).

The poster doubles as a folder so that one side can be used as a poster when unfolded and the other includes a more detailed information about particular events, with a map of where the exhibits are located within the city. We used the motif of a window slash a picture frame – together with the slash, which became a repeated graphic element. We had fun with the selection of colors, which are CMYK-inspired (or CMY, I guess) but with a twist. We also used the motif from the poster on an A6-size postcard.
