In the last decade, experimental and pionneering graphic design has increasingly emerged not from the coasts, Los Angeles or New York, but from the middle of the country. In a new Front Room exhibition, RBMBKESHKM is eponymous for five graphic designers who have produced innovative design in the Midwest. Featuring a broad spectrum of work, from client driven projects to personal experiments, this exhibition presents new creative avenues within the field of design.
The exhibition features work by Roy Brooks of Fold Four in Milwaukee, Mikey Burton from Philadelphia, Kelly English from Minneapolis, Sibylle Hagmann of Houston, and Kindra Murphy from Minneapolis.
As part of the exhibition, each designer has been invited to design a poster for the five exhibitions in the summer season of The Front Room. These posters will be available as free takeaways and will be installed together in RBMBKESHKM.
RBMBKESHKM: Roy Brooks, Mikey Burton, Kelly English, Sibylle Hagmann, and Kindra Murphy is curated by Bruce Burton.
