SummerWorks: Vibrant & edgy graphic design for performing arts in PROMO exhibit

promo_colour-620x500In between plays, I stopped by Artscape Youngplace last night for a SummerWorks Special Presentation Series exhibit: PROMO, an exhibit of graphic design work for the performing arts.

Co-curated by Michael Rubenstein and Natasha Mytnowych, PROMO features the work of:
Roxanne Ignatius
Jonathan Kitchen (Light Up The Sky)
Tad Michalak
Monnet Design
Kilby Smith-McGregor
Soulpepper Theatre Company design, curated by Jacob Whibley

Here are some of my favourites from the exhibit:

Necessary Angel 2009-10 season, by Kilby Smith-McGregor
Glen Hansard concert, by Matt McCracken at Doublenaut
This Is What Happens Next, part of Necessary Angel’s 2009-10 season, by Kilby Smith-McGregor
Buddies in Bad Times Theatre 2010-11 designs, by Jonathan Kitchen










It was also very cool to see Artscape Youngplace up and running. It was still under construction (in an old elementary school) when I moved out of the ‘hood a little over a year ago – and I have to admit, it made me feel a bit homesick – and even a bit envious – that the neighbourhood has this great space.

Check PROMO out, up on the second floor hallway of Artscape Youngplace, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The opening reception is tonight (Sat, Aug 9) from 5 to 7 p.m.
