StereoType lecture with curator Ginger Duggan

Peeler Art Center, Auditorium

Historically, typography has been designed with two axes in mind, x and y. Today, in contrast, designers are broadening their perceptions about type to accommodate the added dimensions of a digital experiential world. Recent innovations in type design take principles of animation, interactivity, and kinetic movement and combine them with traditional components of typography, resulting in pioneering explorations in motion typography.

Join Ginger Duggan, co-curator of StereoType, for an evening lecture which explores the widening field of contemporary typography and the artists represented in the exhibition.

This activity made possible, in part, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional funding provided by the Public Occasions Committee.
