Are design and art really that different?
This was the question posed to a select group of top professional graphic designers and studios in Toronto for XPACE’s new show. Although not a novel question by any means, it is worthy of exploration, especially since XPACE is the Ontario College of Art & Design’s external artist- and student-run space.
The call-out to the practising designers was intentionally vague, encouraging a broad interpretation...showcasing everything from an exploding television video made with unused commercial footage, to more traditional graphic identities, to large-scale images of crushed pop cans, the show’s work is as diverse as the opinions surrounding the question.
