POSTERS OF THE FALL



The last week was the week of the poster. In Paris, from where the modern-day poster was launched in the second half of the 19th century, the AGI (Alliance Graphique International) congress was organized, which of course was the opening with an exhibition of posters: the organizers asked the members of the company to design posters with the title Borders with useing only black, white and grey colours. The last day of the AGI Congress was held in the Pompidou Center, the name of the new members were presented there. One of them is István Horkay so from now there are two representatives of Hungary in the club of the world’s leading graphic artists and designers. (Almost 500 members from 39 countries). Along with the events in Paris, the 20th edition of CIIPE was held (Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition) was held in Fort Colins. Here is the result: Award Winners: Erich Brechbuhl, Istvan Orosz, Mehmet Ali Turkman, Honorable Mentions: Andrew Lewis, Shino Suefusa, Felipe Taborda.  My award winner work is a theatre poster: Stop. Also at the same week the Tolerance poster show (organized by Mirko Ilic) was opened in Breda in the Netherlands and the 1917 - 2017 poster exhibition (organized by by Serge Serov) was opened in Sibenik in Croatia. Both exhibitions are travelling exhibitions, so you can see these posters in other places soon.
