Medrar for Contemporary Art

27 February 2019 - 20 March 2019

Opening Wednesday, 27th February 2019 7 pm
Open daily from 3 to 9 pm. Closed Fridays.

‘The Moving Poster’, the first exhibition of animated posters in Cairo, brings together top designers and animators from all over the world. ‘Moving posters’ are a new digital form where the visual content is animated and displayed through an array of moving image technologies. The exhibited selection demonstrates the wide range of possibilities as well as the limitations of digital visuals and raises questions like: What new techniques and methods of narration can be employed? What are the defining lines between an animated poster and a film? How can this medium develop in the future? And, most importantly, what is a poster exactly?

‘The Moving Poster’ was previously shown at the Weltformat Graphic Design Festival, Switzerland – 2016 and in Typomania international Typographic Festival, Russia – 2017.

The exhibition is accompanied by 3 guest lectures and a two-day workshop. Details are to be posted soon.

The Moving Poster’ exhibition in Cairo is curated by Josh Schaub and Engy Aly in collaboration with Medrar and is supported by Pro Helvetia Cairo.
Additional support by Goethe-Institut Kairo.
