An exhibition showcasing the vernacular typography of advertising banners and signboards which filled the Polish cities’ landscape in the transformative years of the early 1990s opened on Tuesday, April 29 in the Museum of Modern Art.

The “TypoPolo” style of these designs is a visual representation of economic and political changes in Poland. For the professional graphic artists “TypoPolo” expresses the ineptitude and bad taste of amateur designers.

The first part of the exhibition consists of signboards, lettering and inscriptions displays in shop windows, both in the form of original objects and photographs.

The second one presents graphic designs realized by professional designers who seek inspiration in the “TypoPolo”.

The exhibition will remain on display in Warsaw until June 15.
