Crisis is a Greek Word (Travelling Exhibit in Izmir)
Fifty of the best Greek visual communication designers are participating until March 29 at an international exhibit in Izmir, Turkey, titled Crisis is a Greek word. This is a global initiative exploring the ongoing distress that has been affecting more and more countries, inspiring these top designers -with over one thousand international and national distinctions between them- to convey a message of creativity to the world.
The project includes works printed on cloth, videos, algorithm and industrial design. In Turkey, the designers will hold a one-day meeting with Turkish designers that will include the collaborating Faculty of Fine Arts and Design of Izmir University of Economics.
A competition will be held for Turkish designers to produce a poster that will travel with the exhibit once it leaves Turkey on March 29. The project was conceived and organised by the Susurrus group -a non profitable organization of artists willing to communicate design values all over the world.
