Inauguration of MOSTRO 3 Graphic Design Camp
The third edition of MOSTRO – graphic design camp is dedicated to Europe and the bridges that culture can throw thanks to designers of different generations and backgrounds where politics and economics lag behind for fear and speculation. The festival shows stories and events in which creativity and research are concrete opportunities for collaboration, dialogue and work. The format of MOSTRO continues to insist on exhibitions, talks and workshops in collaboration with the Laboratorio Formentini to tell the figures and crafts of visual communication and graphic arts. This year the festival also involves two other venues: the Czech Center in via Morgagni and the new Meme gallery in via Crispi, Milan.
Adam Štěch and the Okolo studio in Prague will create an exhibition on the visualization of the texts that Maria Cristina Didero has written in her career as a curator. A visual experiment aimed at extending the relationship between curator and designer to that of the visual communicator. The exhibition will be set up at the Formentini Laboratory and during a talk the author will talk to Didero about the themes of the exhibition.
The School of Design of the University of San Marino is another guest of the festival. A class of young graphic designers coordinated by Lucia Roscini will prepare a newspaper of the festival and will exhibit in the project room of the Laboratorio Formentini dedicated to new talents.
The Mondadori Foundation, owner of the Laboratorio Formentini, this year celebrates forty years of activity. MOSTRO is dedicating an exhibition to him, curated by Marco W. Fagioli, art director of ZUP and co-founder of the festival, and Paul Robb, Irish graphic designer, owner of the Salt & Pepper studio. Together they will select some of the milestones of Mondadori’s graphics.
The curatorship of the festival is by Marco Sammicheli, the art direction by Marco W. Fagioli, the project management by Maria Di Pierro Losi.
The exhibitions at the Czech Centre and at the Meme gallery will open on 3 October and on 4 October the doors of the Formentini Workshop will open until 9 October.
No registration online is required for this event. Free entry.
