This event is a part of the Off Programme – open space devoted to workshops, interventions, and other presentations and activities related to graphic design. The authors are solely responsible for the nature of this event. The program is subject to change.
Fraser Muggeridge is director of Fraser Muggeridge studio, a graphic design company based in London. Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to posters, marketing material, exhibitions and websites, the studio prioritises artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with colour, typography and materials playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object. Fraser Muggeridge founded and is a tutor at Typography Summer School, a week-long programme of typographic study in London for recent graduates and professionals. The exhibition Willem Sandberg: From type to image is currently on display at the De la Warr Pavilion curated by Carolien Glazenburg, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, in collaboration with Fraser Muggeridge and De La Warr Pavilion.
William Rose is a Leeds-based producer, curator and researcher working mainly in the field of artists’ moving image. He is currently completing a book of writings and lectures by the American avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs. Recent production projects include To the Editor of Amateur Photographer, a long form film by Luke Fowler and Mark Fell which has been screened at venues including MoMA and at the International Film Festival Rotterdam; and Little Birds and a Demon, a sound work broadcast from a lighthouse in Shetland by artist Grace Schwindt.
The Off Programme is conceived as an open space for workshops, interventions and other graphic design presentations. Following the success of its launch in the previous edition, this time it will be primarily focused on exhibition projects.
