Character Type by graphic designer Goh Hun Meng and writer Gareth Richards celebrates the “character” in two ways: the unique characters that make up the languages spoken in Penang, and the vibrant characters of the Penang people.
This month-long exhibition will feature talks and demonstrations of collage reliefs, assemblages, and pop-ups illustrating the creative means of scripts, fonts, and typography in Engliah, Malay, and Chinese letters. The artworks represents how modern typographic art draws the past into the future, and highlights the significance of the printed word as the carrier of ideas, culture, and beliefs.
