Quasi: Experimental Writing Systems

At the intersection of typography, linguistics, and fiction, the exhibition approaches the invention of writing systems as a speculative process and an exercise to discover new quasi-realities within our systems of communication. This practice reveals a fascination with otherness where mythology and utopia are recurring themes. Through this exploration, ‘Quasi’ contributes to an ongoing dialog about re-worlding, imagination, and the importance of playing with language to foster linguistic diversity that can reshape our collective narrative.

Free and open to the public.

We Tried to Warn You! Environmental Crisis Posters, 1970–2020

Every poster in this exhibition is a failure – not in the sense that they failed in their graphic intent of communicating a message, but rather that they failed to successfully modify behaviour.

This exhibition avoids these tropes, charting a global history of environmental activism through posters, ranging in style from whimsical to apocalyptic.

New Ground: Jacob Samuel and Contemporary Etching

What makes a 500-year-old printing process new? Master printer and publisher Jacob Samuel has brought etchings – prints created by transferring ink from a metal plate to paper – into the 21st century through collaborations with more than 60 contemporary artists. Some of the artists had never made prints; others had hated the process. But with Samuel’s guidance, they all adapted this historic technique to their artistic visions. ‘New Ground: Jacob Samuel and Contemporary Etching’ gathers the resulting books and print portfolios to show the flexibility of etching and its reinvention for a contemporary world.

Writing and painting: same source 书画同源

A lecture by Letter Exchange with calligrapher, lettering artist and painter Susie Leiper. ‘Writing and painting share a common source’ is a Chinese maxim.
