Speaking about the upcoming event, Hans Reichert, said: “The idea of the VIDAK exhibition is to show unique typographic and amazing illustrative imagery representing the rich South Korean visual culture. From analogue calligraphic works, product packaging, posters and print products to highly sophisticated AV presentations. A fantastic opportunity for our visitors from the visual industry sector, our alumni and talented students.”
The exhibition, running until Sunday 14 April, will kick off on Tuesday 2 April at 5pm with an opening lecture delivered by Professor Chang Sik Kim on Korean Visual Design, its history and current design scene. The talk will be followed by a private view with an opening ceremony and exhibition introduction. The evening will be opened by the University of Westminster’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Employability & Global Engagement Professor Alex Hughes.
