Mujeres Hispanas y Tipografía-Hispanic Women and Typography Exhibition

April 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm PDT

Sponsored by The Book Club of California

Mujeres Hispanas y Tipografía (Hispanic Women and Typography) celebrates the talents and contributions of Hispanic women to design and typography. Showcasing four individual projects created by Laura Meseguer, Marina Garone, Sandra García, Dafne Martínez, and Jimena Gamio, this publication targets tangible topics, such as educational systems, endangered indigenous languages, and calligraphy.

Lavinia Lascaris and Ximena Amaya, graduates of ArtCenter Graphic Design, were chiefly responsible for the design and production of Mujeres Hispanas y Tipografía. They will be presenting their process in creating the catalog, as they endeavored to share the importance of Hispanic women’s voices and challenge the colonial and patriarchal narratives that have permeated contemporary typography and design.

An in-person and virtual presentation by Gloria Kondrup, professor, ArtCenter College of Design and director of Archetype Press, Lavinia Lascaris, exhibition and graphic designer at Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography, and Ximena Amaya, graphic designer and Typography Fellow at Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography.
