Air Poster was born from the desire to produce work that sits outside of normal commissions, to give shape to ideas and dreams, for the pleasure of graphic and sculptural research, to take a breath of fresh air.
This initiative is an opportunity for participants to share research, to show other aspects of their creations, to test procedures and to be confronted with other work methods that they don’t necessarily have the chance to use in their daily activities.
This is a way of teasing out the finer detail of current questions concerning the industry: the relationship with commissions, the question of the poster and its status, the question of content and its expression, the designer’s position as an interloper in the world of applied arts.
The idea is not to run away from these questions, which form an integral part of creative work, but rather to view them from a different perspective, to change the focus and to do, show and to be together, assembled around Air Poster.
Posters by the following ateliers will be presented as part of Air Poster: Akatre, Atelier 25, Atelier trois, BB-Bureau, La Casse, Cheeri, Des Signes, Stéphane Elbaz, Les Graphiquants, Gr20, Irradié, Christophe Renard, Zecraft.
