What is space? is it the platform in which we communicate, is it simply the absence of content. How can it be that something so simple and percieved as empty can have so much control in a piece of design. A concious use and more considered use of space in graphic design came about in the modernist era. Whereby design was seeking clarity and effective forms of communication in its simplist form with it came a minimalist look, design seeked to only use the content which is relevant with no decorative elements.

The idea of exhibiting emptiness is a recurring notion in the history of art over the past fifty or so years, almost to the point of becoming a cliché in the practice of contemporary art. Since the exhibition by Yves Klein – “The Specialization of Sensibility in the Raw Material State of Stabilized Pictorial Sensibility” in Paris in 1958, totally empty exhibitions have been the statement of different conceptions of vacuums.

Activities for Families

The exhibition explores the meaning of space within Graphic Design, Looking at how design relates to space not just in terms of scale but also the space surrounding content in a piece of design, the show also looks at the exhibition space and the relationship it has with graphic design. Not only with the exhibition of work but the way graphic design gives an exhibition/gallery a designed identity. And how that represents a gallery of space and almost the content within it. The show will feature a range of different designers and designs which explore space and its suggnificance and meaning. The show also has various guest speaker who will talk at different points while the exhibition is on.

In art white space has been used in different unique ways, each of which has its own interpretation, as influenced by the artist. In this analysis it will be clear to see how whiteness is defined conceptually through art, in a social context and the connotations it has on an audience. In the context of current graphic design practice white space is increasingly used as a vehicle to effectively communicate a message to an audience and in my view influences the ultimate control in a piece of design as well as implying a statement of aspiration.
