Kemistry Gallery: 100 Years of Graphic Design
In December, iconic design gallery Kemistry Gallery had to move out of its permanent residence in Shoreditch. Next month, it is back with a pop-up exhibition in the next phase of the #SaveKemistryGallery campaign.
Kemistry Gallery: 100 Years of Graphic Design will showcase design classics as well as work from some of the best young designers from 1914 to now. In their words, “the exhibition is a unique Kemistry-curated retrospective of some of the most iconic and exciting moments in graphic design history.”
The exhibition, running from 7-15th March, has been funded with help from a £15,000 grant from Arts Council England and £16,000 raised by almost 600 supporters via their Kickstarter campaign. On top of finding a new permanent space, they are working toward becoming a new National Centre for Graphic Design. 100 Year of Graphic Design is the first event planned since losing their Shoreditch space and this – plus other pop-up projects, publications and fundraising activities in the pipeline – will help support their #SaveKemistryGallery campaign and help to secure their long-term future.
We think it will definitely be worth a visit! Find out more about the gallery, the exhibition and some of the artists and designers who will be featured, see Kemistry Gallery’s website and for a preview of some of the featured artwork, see Digital Arts.
