AZAD COLLABORATIVE DESIGN PROJECT
A Selection of Posters from
Azad Art Gallery/Tehran/Iran
Idee & Design: Reza Abedini
Art Director: Aria Kasaei
September 8 – October 8, 2016
This project was initiated in a non-commercial collaboration between a group of young Iranian graphic designers and Azad Art Gallery in Tehran in 2008. Since then, posters were designed by this group to promote the bi-weekly exhibitions of Azad Art Gallery. For the past 8 years, 44 designers have participated in this project and more than 300 posters designed, printed and distributed.
This exhibition first took place in February 2009 in Tehran. In November 2012, the exhibition was held at Bethanien Art Centre in Berlin as part of the "Right-To-Left" event. The exhibition moved to Maxxi Foundation in Rome in November 2014 as part of the "IRAN, Unedited History" event. The next host of this project was the Lebanese American University in Beirut in April 2016.
Hinterland Galerie is the fifth location where this initiative is being exhibited and we are proud to share it with our friends and colleagues in Vienna.
