The IO & TE exhibition offers an overview of the visual production of Anthony Burrill, internationally renowned designer and graphic artist, who lives and works on the island of Oxney, in Kent. The exhibition, showed for the first time in Italy, presents his works made in the last three decades of his career, retracing, alongside the more famous collections, his training as a student up to the most recent and never seen before works of him.
Known for his persuasive and optimistic communication style, his messages have become a mantra for the design community and beyond. Typographic posters, silk-screen prints, but also objects selected from his collection of graphic ephemera therefore offer the viewer an immersive journey into the studio and creative process of this iconic artist.
In addition to the exhibition, Anthony Burrill took part in the inaugural weekend of the festival, speaking in the Design Talk on Saturday May 6 at 5 pm and leading the “Made by hand” workshop on Sunday May 7. Furthermore, the artist took part in a live print session together with the Print Club Torino.
