Opening of 'The Poster Remediated' exhibition
The Poster Remediated
Poster Museum at Wilanów
12 June – 25 September 2016
Curator: David Crowley
Opened in Warsaw’s Poster Museum from 12th of June (Sunday) 2016, The Poster Remediated exhibition explores how the conventional poster is undergoing rapid transformation in an age of ubiquitous digital screens and social media. To mark its anniversary, the organizers of the International Poster Biennale have commissioned a new exhibition to explore the past, present and future of this form of graphic communication. It shows that the Internet has not – as some commentators have suggested – killing off the poster. But the medium is being changed by digital technology.
Sometimes this means the creation of entirely new forms of poster such as interactive billboard advertisements which address the passer-by in lively and sometimes unsettling ways. In other settings, such as the conflicts which exploded in the Maidan in Kiev in 2013 or in Tahrir Square in Cairo in 2011, the Internet has provided an up-to-date means for circulating low-tech and hand-made poster images.
Continuing the tradition of the Warsaw International Poster Biennale The Poster Remediated exhibition is a truly global exhibition featuring designs from Europe, the Middle East, China, Korea, Latin and North America.
In The Poster Remediated we can also see ten best animation films selected from 400 submitted works in the open competition. More about the competition>>
