Gallery Weekend Budapest: Graphics by Fanny Papay
Hungarian graphic designer and illustrator Fanny Papay created these fantastic graphics for the 2018 edition of Gallery Weekend Budapest.
“The conception of GWB18’s visual campaign was based on caricatures of modern art in the post war era mocked the meaningless and the snobishness of the abstraction, published in the Eastern part of the Iron Curtain (anti-Imperialist jokes in satirical picture magazines; e.g. the Hungarian ‘Ludas Matyi’), and the Western side (see Ad Reinhardt’s clarifying cartoons) too.
As self-sarcastic commentary on the ‘What is modern/contemporary art’ rhetoric question, the GWB’s campaign answered with a combination of pseudo contemporary art installations (invented by Fanny Pápay, photographed by Dávid Biró) and funny Messenger dialogues (written by Gábor Rieder), contextualizing the fragile situation of the real contemporary art works exhibited in the participant galleries of the GWB.”Advertising Art Graphic Design Illustration Print Design Posted on November 20, 2018
