NYC Poster Exhibition: Connection, Community & Values — Inside the Facebook Analog Research Lab
February 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - March 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
Come to the Type Directors Club to view our latest exhibition — Connection, Community & Values: Inside the Facebook Analog Research Lab. You’ll get to see posters produced at Facebook’s artist-in-residence program and see why one of the world’s largest digital platforms is hand-crafting posters one at a time.
You’ll see posters and printed matter of the Facebook Analog Research Lab and its Designer-in-Residence program, which was established in 2016, to put ideas, critical questions, and visual interventions into the spaces that people inhabit. See how these hand-crafted artworks are opening doors to new ways of looking at the world, finding community, inviting dialog, and creating positive friction that meaningfully affects people. The works ask questions, intersect social values, and provoke important questions with the aim to open minds to new ideas and perspectives.
The show features work by Facebook’s Artists in Residence, including Elana Schlenker, Kaye Blegvad, Eddie Perrote, Luiza Dale, and others. The show is curated by Scott Boms, a cross-disciplinary graphic designer and printmaker, who serves as the global design lead at the Analog Research Lab, Facebook’s in-house design and art making studio.
The exhibition is free and open to the public Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm by appointment only. Call 212-633-8943 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
