Fast Forward, Talk on Arab and Iranian Typography PastThursday, Aug 28, 2014 ,
Join the co-curators of Local / Not Local for a rare lecture on Arab and Iranian typography design. Much has been said about Arabic and Iranian graphic language peering through the prism of history — from their aesthetic form and holly functions, to their meticulous craft and distinctive traditions.
How does that history define what the future holds, however? Who are the design visionaries who are creating a new vocabulary by breaking the rules of the past? How are shifting sociopolitical landscapes in the Middle East shaping a new visual language for the future? Join Maece Seirafi and Pouya Jahanshahi as they explore the evolution of a new visual vocabulary in the making.
Co-curator Maece Seirafi is a Syrian American designer/artist and her colleague, Iranian American Pouya Jahanshahi, currently holds the cross-cultural chair at the Orange County American Institute of Graphic Arts. They met as grad students at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).
