Three Exhibitions > Seminar Mag, Her work is never done, Empire Strikes Back
Typographica and Seminar: On 17th Feb, W+K Exp, Delhi will showcase the world of Seminar Magazine, India’s own groundbreaking testament to the power of the word. Celebrated over its 50 years for bringing “opposing viewpoints within the covers of a single magazine”, this exhibition does not delve into the content of the magzine, rather it focuses on the magazine’s unequivocal support of typography – Seminar has appeared every month since its inception with a purely typographic cover. Curated by its current designer, Akila Seshasayee, and owner editor Malvika Singh, the exhibition will present the best covers from 50 years of the magazine. Also showing, is Typographica, the first exhibition of the design journal of the same name. Groundbreaking when first published in 1949 and now considered legendary, Typographica showcased the very best in worldwide visual arts.
