AIGA NY Publikum Presentation, Friday February 22

Short documentary on the making of the 2008 Publikum Calendar, directed by Nada Ray

The 2008 Publikum Calendar, designed by Sean Adams, features work by 12 international graphic artists including Chip Kidd, Marian Bantjes, Garth Walker, Luba Lukova, Igor Orsolic, Jianping He, Matteo Bologna, Big Active and others. It is a multi-disciplinary project consisting of a wall calendar, a book, a video documentary, lectures and exhibitions.

Publikum Calendar emerged fifteen years ago amidst the turmoil and war in Serbia. Co-founded by George Mill and Nada Ray, it has grown into an international collaborative publication, publishing works by Serbian and international artists, most notably Paula Scher, Mirko Ilic, Oliviero Toscani, Marina Abramovic, David Byrne, Barbara Kruger, Tadanori Yoko, Slavimir Stojanovic, Karlssonwilker, Andrea Dezso, and more.

On Friday, February 22, I will be moderating a talk with designers Chip Kidd, Luba Lukova, Matteo Bologna and Publikum Calendar founders George Mill & Nada Ray at the AIGA Headquarters (164 Fifth Avenue) from 6:00-7:30.

The Publikum Calendar 2008 exhibition at the AIGA National Design Center is on view until February 22, 2008, so this is your last chance to see this!
