Teaming up with the Hong Kong Designers Association for the fifth time, the Hong Kong International Poster Triennial continues to document new and exciting developments in poster design, while also encouraging international cultural exchange and enriching the museum’s collections. The museum presents the 2014 Triennial in three parts – a competition, an exhibition and a seminar.
The four categories in the competition – Ideology, Promotion of Cultural Events, Commercial and Advertising, and Thematic “Blind Spot” – attracted 1,556 works from 32 countries providing a comprehensive overview of the latest global trends in poster design.
The jury was made up by Dr Jianping He from Germany, Ms Luba Lukova from the United States of America, Mr Masayoshi Kodaira from Japan, Mr Ralph Schraivogel from Switzerland, and Mr John Warwicker from the United Kingdom, who selected a shortlist of 222 entries for the event, which will be showcased along representative works by the five judges, under the title “Vision”.
The Biennial will take place in Hong Kong Heritage Museum, at the Poster Pavilion from December 6, 2014 to March 2, 2015.
