Poster, Gwangju Biennale 2014, 2014

This is a poster. It was designed by Sulki & Min, Donghyeok Shin, Haeok Shin, Sulki Choi and Min Choi. It is dated 2014 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

For the 10th Gwangju Biennale, Sulki & Min strove to evoke the art festival’s provocative theme “Burning Down the House.” The designers created a typographic system featuring three different weights and five different line breaks. Used together, the system allowed the design to cover as much surface area of the poster with text as possible. The designers also re-drew the Korean characters, modifying some of the more traditional conventions, allowing them to work seamlessly with the Latin characters.

This object was donated by Sulki & Min. It is credited Gift of Sulki & Min.
