calm & punk gallery is proud to present “Schweiz 日本 Japan スイス” an exhibition that will start from June 19th (Fri).
The exhibition “Schweiz 日本 Japan スイス” will be held at our gallery, “CALM&PUNK“, starting from June 19th (Fri). After being showcased at the Weltformat poster festival in Lucerne, Switzerland last autumn, the posters can be now seen in Japan from June 19th to July 5th 2015, at the CALM&PUNK GALLERY in Tokyo.
As a cultural contribution to the 150th Year Anniversary of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Japan, Weltformat poster festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, has initiated a project to bring together designers from Japan and Switzerland. During the last century, designers from both countries have made great contributions to the field of poster design, their attitudes, and methods have had a strong impact on visual communication worldwide. For this exhibition, six renowned designers and design studios from each country were invited to design a poster.
In recent years, all of the participating designers have been attracted international attention through unconventional poster designs. For this project, they were asked to design a poster addressing the keyword ’exchange’. The aim was to encourage a dialog about contemporary poster design, as well as to investigate how attitudes and interests of designers from both countries differ or correlate with each other. The result is an exciting visual dialogue between twelve designers from two nations.
