The University Library's fall 2023 Context Exhibit, Graphis Designers for Peace Posters The exhibit features award-winning posters on display in the Library’s 3rd floor exhibit space and virtually online.
Experience the profound impact of global graphic design with "Graphis Designers for Peace." This evocative poster exhibition showcases award-winning works from over 30 countries, offering a deep dive into global perspectives on peace, especially in light of the conflicts in Ukraine.
From bold typography to compelling visuals, this juried selection of 30 posters out of nearly 400 submissions challenges perceptions and sparks dialogue. Brought to life through a collaboration between Graphis and Kit Hinrichs of Studio Hinrichs, this exhibition stands as a united global response to the Ukrainian invasion. It exemplifies the power of visual art to inspire, unite, and ignite a call for peace.
Witness how a single cause can bind diverse voices, and the immense power of visual storytelling. Join us in exploring this tribute to peace and unity through these poignant artworks that amplify humanity's shared aspirations and collective strength.
On Thursday, October 26th, the University welcomes Kit Hinrichs of Studio Hinrichs for a discussion on the collaboration to create Graphis Designers for Peace.
