True to type

August 18, 2014 – 1:50 pm

ACU Strathfield Campus Library recently hosted an exhibition of paintings inspired by the acquisition of The Saint John’s Bible. Now visitors are being treated to a display of graphic posters designed by ARTS111 students. An exploration of typography, the students researched the influence of Modernist art movements such as Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism and Constructivism on various typefaces. They were tasked with creating a poster to advertise a Sydney Design Festival in the style they chose to research.

Arts Liaison Librarian Maria El-Chami was on hand with lecturer-in-charge Mr Xavier Beau-Davis during the presentation phase of the assignment. Together they singled out 10 works for honourable mention which can be seen on the back wall of Strathfield Campus Library, Level 1. The other works are bringing a welcome splash of colour to various locations within the Library.

If you can’t make it into the Library, check out the works on the Library’s Facebook page and like your favourite. We’ll be loading the ten posters onto Facebook this week – two an afternoon 🙂
