HIROSHIMA APPEALS Exhibition
August 4, 2018 (Sat) - September 2, 2018 (Sun)
"Hiroshima Appeals" is a poster series produced by the Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc. (JAGDA), the Hiroshima Peace Creation Fund and the Hiroshima International Cultural Foundation to keep the memory of the first atomic bombing on mankind alive, and to bring the appeal for world peace to a mass audience. A Hiroshima Appeals poster is created annually by a graphic designer for distribution in Japan and around the world. The posters are designed to give voice to the "Hiroshima's Spirit" from a pure, neutral standpoint.
In this exhibition, all 21 posters in the series from the first in 1983, Burning Butterflies by Yusaku Kamekura (1915-1997) right up to this year will be on display. Also on show in a special exhibit are works of Siu Kataoka (1932-1997), a Hiroshima-born designer who survived the bombing at the age of 13 and set himself the challenge of creating 100 posters for peace.
Vivid messages conveyed by design. May this exhibition be an opportunity for many of us to reflect on the memory of Hiroshima and its hopes for the future.
Organized by Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc. (JAGDA), 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 3 is a presentation space dedicated to design, which develops collaborative programs with domestic and overseas corporations, which constitute one of the major bases of making things, as well as educational, research and cultural institutions. Through programs that inform the very present of design, here, we can think about our everyday life and future with a greater number of people, and make various proposals.
Through networks that continue to expand from the Gallery 3 as the hub, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will explore a multifaceted “design point of view” in future.
