    D/STANZE - Forms, relations, approximations

    The exhibition aims to investigate the theme of distance: a fluid and dynamic concept that takes shape in multiple forms, relationships, and approximations. Empathy, social relationships, hyper-connection, and microscopic or macroscopic views are just some of the declinations that Unirsm Design visual communication teachers and students have been working on, questioning the nature of interpersonal and interspecies relationships. In a dialogue between the visual artifact and the viewer, there opens a universe of reflections and questions about contemporary society and its ability to truly connect beyond the distances that separate us.
    The exhibition will also be complemented by a contribution by Alessandro Bergonzoni, the extraordinary actor and artist, entitled: Per stare e non distare (vite da vicino di cose).

    EXHIBITION 24 - 25 - 26 may | 14:30 - 21:30

    Italo Lupi - Calendars 1991-2019

    From 1991 to 2019, Italo Lupi curated the calendar for Mariano Graphics. Thanks to the foresight of the client, the Brianza printing house headed by Giorgio Anzani and Luigino Songia, Lupi explores the technical quality of the printer through his curious digressions. From typography to photography, from tributes to Italian design masters to various beloved visual registers: games, instruction booklets, and street signs. The calendars then constitute an intimate vocabulary of Italo Lupi's graphic design, capable of holding together the eye of the architect – when, in the 2009 calendar, he paid homage to some of the world's best-loved cities in the form of infographics – and the gaze of the graphic designer, between pop cocktails and typographic rigors. The succession of months, year after year, unveils Italo Lupi's visual language, mainly consisting of digressions on the most diverse visual repertoires, as well as his generous human and cultural curiosity.

    Tomo Tomo

    Underground compendium

    What does it mean to be underground? What visual cues communicate a nature that is independent, clandestine, experimental, and DISTANT from the system and normal distribution channels? Starting from our underground area, we will look for clues, metaphors, signs, and symbols and will collect them using various techniques to create a collective publishing object.

    WORKSHOP 24 may | 10:00 - 18:00

    Analogue Wayfinding

    Space is a communication tool, not just because of its inherent qualities but also due to the perception and movements of those who inhabit it: factors we can identify and direct. The workshop will aim to design the identity of the place where the exhibition takes place in relation to movement within that space or to that space. Signs will be made in large format with paint or spray, on media to be defined (floors, walls, tarps, paper rolls, bedsheets, etc.). We will identify a code and create it with stencils in the large available formats to seek an identity based on unconventional standards.

    WORKSHOP 25 may | 10:00 - 18:00
