On November 24, 2011, an exhibition titled Typographic Tables was held in the Museion-Museum of modern and contemporary art, Bolzano, in Italy, curated by Antonino Benincasa. The exhibition featured 30 artworks by contemporary graphic designers, typographers and emerging talents from the visual arts including Ed Fella, Erik Spiekermann, Kenya Hara, Martì Guxiè, Zuzana Licko, Joshua Davis, Irma Boom, Henk van Assen, Büro Destruct, Philippe Apeloig, Baumann & Baumann and Helmut Schmid. Reza Abedini and Homa Delvaray were the two Iranian designers who participated in the Typographic Tables exhibition.
During the exhibition two plates, two glasses and two chairs were put in the galley. Each table set representing one entry. Visitors were able to touch the artworks, eat off the tables, and interact with their neighbouring tables. Design entries were limited to black & white letters and typographic signs, including punctuation marks. No grayscale, no colors and no photos were allowed. Artworks were digitally printed on high quality canvas.
Displayed artworks were added to Museion’s permanent collection following the exhibition.
