When It’s Nice That directors Alex Bec and Will Hudson were invited out to Sao Paulo to run a workshop on curation with local creatives, they were following in some pretty hefty footsteps. A few months before Anthony Burrill had been out as part of the Mesa&Cadeira programme and he had inspired his group to create a series of posters inspired by vernacular street typography. Now these posters are being exhibited at London’s Kemistry Gallery bringing the results of this unique collaboration to a UK audience.
Asked to distill their individual life philosophy into a single phrase, the messages created range from the inspirational to the cryptic to the weird (“Sex with mosquitos” anyone?) and it’s nice to see new twists on the work of such a familiar talent.
How to say the most with the least or Quanto mais olho para trás, mais milagres eu vejo runs from July 5 to July 28.
