Coinciding with his lecture will be an exhibition at The Anderson. Here is the press release:
The Anderson is pleased to present “Linking Park,” an exhibition by Bráulio Amado. An opening reception will be held on January 18 from 6–9 pm. In “Linking Park,” Amado presents a series of experimental, long-form URL “billboards.” In these large scale works, Amado–best known for his eye-catching poster designs–playfully subverts expectations of immediacy and legibility in public and commercial signage, disrupting the ease and speed of use associated with contemporary hypertext.
