Geographies of the Self, The Others, Coexistences, Feeling at Home, Creating Worlds, Distances and Inside the Absurd are the titles of the 7 thematic sections of the exhibition which, starting from the deepest exploration of the self as the point of origin of every conscious design journey, leads, through works of illustration, graphics, fashion design, photography, interior and product design, communication design and transportation design, to open glimpses of the great issues of today. “This is an event that I have been thinking about since my arrival at IED,” said Paola Zini, Director of IED Turin. “I believe that an exhibition like this can fully convey the sense of design, which has always been at the heart of the Institute’s training”.
The curatorship of the exhibition was entrusted to Benedetta Lenzi, Cultural Manager and Sara Fortunati, Director of the Circolo del Design in Turin. The exhibition design is by Marilivia Minnici, Program Manager of the Circolo del Design, with the collaboration of a collective of students from the three-year courses in Interior Design, Graphic Design and Illustration. The coordinated image is the result of the creativity of Irene Scanavacca and Patrick Ometto, students of Illustration and Graphic Design, led by Sara Maragotto, Coordinator of the Illustration course.
