Une saison graphique 13

Une saison graphique 13  - Une saison graphique 13
An overview of contemporary graphic design, through a set of creations by singular designers and studios: Ahn Sang Soo, Helmo, Julian House (Warp)...
The catalogue of the Saison Graphique 2013 exhibition inaugurates a work of reflections which stress the importance of structuring this event by the written medium, specifying its peculiarities, and extending its echo in a critical perspective.
The diversity of the texts, whether by their content or their tone, responds to that of the exhibition, in which different structures have been asked to approach and assist a graphic designer in questioning his/her practice and disciplin through an exhibiting of his/her work with an original scenography.
Two curators (Nawal Bakouri and Jean-Michel Géridan) were in charge of writing respectively on the works of Ahn Sang Soo and Julian House. Helmo exchanged with Jochen Gerner, and they contribute by their analysis in placing the contextual aspects of contemporary graphic creation. Following an interview of the illustrator Hervé Tullet, Jean-Noël Lafargue questions the functioning and the interaction modes of childrens' books in the digital era. For the collective
exhibition Un Imprimeur, the floor was given to graphic designers: the intimate and committed speech helps us to understand the importance of design in our society.
Self-standing object, this catalogue intends, together with curatorial research, to deepen the reflection on the contribution of graphic design to the world, to our relation to the world.
