17th INTERNATIONAL POSTER BIENNIAL IN MEXICO
FESTIVAL OF ARTS AND DESIGN | XALAPA / MEXICO CITY
With over 30 years of history, the International Poster Biennial in Mexico is a project with the mission to not only promote and keep the memory of posters in Mexico, but to be a driving force for our country’s visual culture, as well as for both Mexican and Latin American graphic design and its teaching.
In that sense, committed to education as we are, and in order to consolidate this initiative as a linking platform for creators, we had the necessity to put together a different kind of event that would allow us to bring highly experienced talent of a great importance to share their knowledge with Mexico.
What in 1991 was born as the First International Workshop, in 1996 it grew into the First Designers Meeting in Aguascalientes. Two years later, it turned into the International Meeting of Graphic Design in Xalapa, until the First Festival of Arts and Design was born in 2004, and it also took place in Xalapa.
Ever since that moment, moving around cities and adapting its name, we have put together conferences, master classes, workshops, exhibitions, and design seminars with the highest-quality content, which offer new points of view while expanding education on this discipline.
The backbone of the event are promotion, reinforcement, affiliation, as well as arts and design training. We strive for our project to be a platform that will make way for reflection on visual culture and communication.
At present, design and its applications reach every sphere of life. This broad spectrum of possibilities makes reflection necessary for visual language and communication .
We want to provide students and professionals with new designing tools by means of exhibitions, conferences, showcases, talks, artistic presentations, book presentations, and workshops, with the intervention of great designers from Mexico and the world. All this while also showing the realities of this discipline from different positions, its new languages, and stretching the knowledge.
Additionally, creating and reinforcing inter-institutional links, or relations between creators from Xalapa and their peers across Mexico and the world, is key for the event to happen. Meanwhile, these activities are also linked to the realities of the state of Veracruz, not only in design, but also in its cultural and agricultural production, or its biodiversity.
We are the most important design event in the country, in which we bring together creators from America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania for them to share their knowledge and experience. Our spaces encourage a direct dialogue with our guests, making it a one-of-a-kind platform.
Deep in visual creation and design, and with an extensive career behind them, here is the international group of lecturers who will be joining us in this edition:
