Come along to the opening of artist Barrie Tullett’s epic exhibition of typographic works responding to Dante’s Divine Comedy.
Tullett has created 100 typographic illustrations, each of which responds to a Canto of Dante’s unfolding narrative, giving an opportunity to experience the whole journey of the Divine Comedy in one visual experience. Each work was made using a different ‘obsolete’ technology: wood and metal type, a typewriter and letraset.
Hear from the artist and raise a glass at this evening event.
A set of prints by Brenda Dermody, reinterpreting some of these typographic illustrations, accompanies the works. Dermody is a designer, author, and researcher, and is Programme Chair of Visual Communication at the Dublin School of Creative Arts, Technological University Dublin.
