Posters, broadsheets, booklets and other printed goods are inevitable and essential parts of every event, whether it be a performance, an exhibition, or a festival. Staying in the background, these printed materials usually determine our first feeling and expectation, create an image of an up-coming event, and after remain as artifacts, evidence of the first impression. Sometimes broadsheets, posters, and booklets are kept for a long time, they become a part of one’s home archive, they are used as a walls’ decoration at home and in office.
Designer is like an invisible hero, who creates all these wonderful things, but usually it is a hero that stays unknown. Unfortunately, today printing art is a rare guest on art exhibitions, even though dramatic and exhibitional poster art was a full-fledged member of visual arts performances before.
Exhibition «Events», presented in media-center «Vykhod», is an attempt to draw public’s attention to printing works of Vladlena Gromova. Her name is known among experts and admirers of modern art, especially in case concerning video-art, installation, electronic art, as well as «KomartClub» project and, in general, work of media-center «Vykhod». Today it is hard to imagine this innovative space with its outstanding and diverse projects without bright and impressive design of Vladlena Gromova. Catalogues, broadsheets, posters, and booklets which she made stand out against a background of sad and banal printing flow that is made every day. Being effective and spectacular, her works are always outstanding. Thus, media-center «Vykhod» is proud to present its printing goods made by Vladlena Gromova.
Cooperation with young artists and designers is a strategic goal of «Vykhod». It means that authors are given a maximum of creative freedom and, moreover, a chance to accomplish and implement their projects. Today you can rarely see the situation when a customer strives for an unconventional artistic solution and does not dictates his demands to the designer. Performances and events which are organized by media-center «Vykhod» are exclusive and unusual as well, so they are incitements for designer’s work. Broadsheets and other printing goods made by Vladlena Gromova which are presented in «Vykhod» are a retrospection of several years of «Vykhod’s» life and at the same time preparation for its 10-year anniversary celebration.
