Visiting artist talk: Oded Ezer

Join Tel Aviv, Israel–based graphic artist and experimental typographer Oded Ezer at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) to hear firsthand about his pioneering work exploring the emotional and symbolic associations of letters while pushing type design into new realms.

Ezer is known for blending visual qualities from the natural world with the forms of Latin and Hebrew letters. Beyond his design-studio work, his artistic practice spans from typographic-design fiction projects and videos to innovative artworks that combine fonts and sculpture. Skype Type (2010) and Feedback (2013) are two examples of his typographical work, currently on display at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Boston) as part of the exhibition StereoType: New directions in typography.

This talk is presented in conjunction with MassArt’s graphic design department.

This program is being held in relation to StereoType, on view at BSA Space through May 25, a groundbreaking exhibition that presents works by an array of established and up-and-coming designers from around the world. By exploring the opportunities at the intersection of technology and design, this new breed of artists is expanding the boundaries of traditional typography and integrating elements from the fields of animation, craft, performance, nanoscience, and graffiti into their work.

No RSVP is necessary.
