「組版造形 白井敬尚」展

The 362nd Ginza Graphic Gallery Exhibition 

Typographic Composition, Yoshihisa Shirai

 

时间:2017年9月26日-11月7日
地址:东京中央区银座7丁目7-2号DNP银座大厦1楼,104-0061

 
白井敬尚以其广受好评的设计杂志——《IDEA》的艺术指导工作而闻名于世。10年来,他负责该杂志的设计,涉及了广泛的主题和项目。它每逢双月出版,每期杂志的作品都被设计成最高级的艺术作品,因此《IDEA》成了非常有吸引力的作品集。这是将是不寻常的展览:白井敬尚主要从事书籍设计和编辑设计,在这次期待已久的ggg个展中,除了展示许多精美的书籍设计外,展出的主要作品还以有油墨字符的跨页方式呈现。

除了《IDEA》之外,白井敬尚也参与了大量的书籍设计。在开始设计之前,他会阅读并熟悉该主题或人物的特征,然后逐页进行精心的排版。在他手中,多样化的文字会像封面之间的声音一样回荡起来,有时轻松,有时严谨,有时充满了时尚。他那高超的排版一定会是一段难忘的阅读体验。

这次展览除了展示大量的白井敬尚的作品外,还将展现白井先生创作排版过程中的一些新材料。除了展示设计的书籍研究成果,展览还将为参观者提供一个机会,能够通过展现设计的过程稿,书籍设计不只是在表象,更在于深度。

Among the design elements of typography is “typographic composition”: composition that includes the space in which lettering is arranged and configured on a page. “Typographic Composition” is also the title chosen by Yoshihisa Shirai, who remains active primarily in book design and editorial design, for his long-awaited solo exhibition at ggg. The exhibition will be out of the ordinary: in addition to showing many of Shirai’s book designs of great beauty, the core of the works on display will consist of two-page spreads featuring black lettering.
 
Yoshihisa Shirai is widely known for his art direction work for the universally acclaimed design magazine “IDEA.” For 10 years he was in charge of the design of this magazine that covers a remarkably broad spectrum of topics and subjects. Its bimonthly publication schedule notwithstanding, each issue of the magazine is worked up into a superlative work of art, so that taken together they create an extremely attractive collection.
 
Besides “IDEA” Shirai has also been involved in the design of a plethora of books. Before commencing a book design, he reads up and becomes thoroughly familiar with the subject or person being featured, and only then does he proceed to painstakingly devise its typography, page by page. The diverse texts formed by his hand reverberate like voices from between the book’s covers, at times breezily, at others sternly, and yet others stylishly. Any encounter with his alluring typography is sure to make for an unforgettable reading experience.
 
This exhibition, in addition to displaying a large number of Shirai’s actual works, will also introduce a more modest number of materials that he has used as reference materials in the course of creating typography. Besides providing insight into just how much research he puts into each book he designs, the exhibition will surely also offer the visitor an opportunity to relish typographic composition not at a superficial level but in all its profundity, incorporating borrowed or referenced
knowledge and designs of the past and forms that have become modified and passed down.
