Tasmeem: De-sign Scrapyard

June 15 2023 - August 31 2023
7.00 pm - 7.00 pm

Introducing De-sign Scrapyard by Tasmeem!

The selection of posters on display introduces letterforms and visuals as their new identities. The posters challenge former versions of themselves, breathing new life into their current selves. By methods of creating new meanings, composition, scale, shapes, forms and letterforms, materials - you can retell a story with a different ending. They use past clues and cues to form new investigations.

The exhibition aims to highlight the design process and destigmatize the idea of scrapped work. Create your own De-sign Scrapyard; an ode to lost ideas, unfinished thoughts, and could have beens.

Showcasing 12 artworks selected through an open call, De-Sign Scrapyard by Tasmeem is free and open to the public from Thursday 15th June.
