Graphic design exhibition at LdM Gallery

Show opening: November 7th, 6pm-8pm
LdM Gallery, via dei Pucci 4, Florence

Following the opening exhibition ANIMAE, the LdM Gallery launches he!p, a graphic design exhibition that approaches a variety of issues found in today’s society from the students’ perspective.

The student-oriented show centers around a series of campaign posters exploring the multicolored world of politics, social issues, and environmental concerns. The collective work in he!p opens up a dialogue around the concept of critical messages that go beyond what meets the eye. Through unique approaches and techniques, the selected artists underline the power of words and images related to today’s society, with a common goal of creating a powerful, lasting impact.

Curated by Paolo Ghielmetti, Supervisor of the LdM Department of Graphic design, the exhibition features the work by former LdM Graphic Design students Rio Julio Miguel Asch Phoenix, Charlotte Bolhuis, Cristina Cantu Santos, Meagan Kay Garrett, Andrea Gonzalez Arteaga, Elizabeth Ann Hurley, Gabriel Alejandro Jauregui Reveles, Kathleen Louise Lawver, Maria Lucrecia Quintanilla Decrescenzo, Alyssa Smith, Fernanda Trevino Tamez, Jeffrey Raymond Urbahn.

The exhibition he!p will be open from November 7th to November 28th.
After the launch, the LdM Gallery will be open weekly from Tuesday to Thursday, 5pm – 8pm.

Opening night will include a free aperitivo.

LdM Gallery

The LdM Gallery is a project by Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici, a space where academic research and artistic experimentation meet within a professional setting.

Founded in 1973, Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici prides itself with having core values aimed towards ensuring students achieve the skills necessary to creatively meet the challenges of their respective fields, skills accomplished through interdisciplinary projects and engagement within the professional sector, as well as through the  interaction with the local community.

The LdM Gallery closely aides in working towards this goal, creating an efficient space for showcasing interdisciplinary fields of art within the school. The overall mission of the LdM Gallery is to encourage the development of creativity and sophistication within the student body, generate an open dialogue between students and the public, and foster opportunities for students to experience the reality of the art world beyond an institutional setting and gain professional experience through their artwork.
