LOCAL / NOT LOCAL - Arabic & Iranian Typography Made in California

Arabic & Iranian Typography Made in California

LOCAL / NOT LOCAL is an exhibition that showcases the works of Arabic and Iranian designers based in California. This connection is reflected in their work in the form of ongoing client work from the Middle East, self-initiated projects, or locally-based client work. The point of this exhibit is to break the notion that Arabic and Iranian typography is only practiced in the Middle East. Arab and Iranian designers reveal through their design practice that Arabic and Iranian typography has a place in California through community-based projects, collaborations, and client work from abroad done locally.

Join us Thursday night for an evening that celebrates the Arab and Iranian local design scene!
