Manchester based freelance designer Dave Sedgwick has been in touch to let us know about BCN:MCR – ‘A unique exhibition, uniting five of the best Barcelona based design agencies at 2022NQ, Manchester’ – a culture exchange project he’s curating.
‘BCN:MCR’ premieres at 2022NQ on Thursday 21 February 2013. The exhibition unites, for the first time, five of the most innovative and cutting-edge, Barcelona based design agencies of the moment; Hey Studio, Lamosca, Lo Siento, Mayúscula and Mucho; and will provide a rare opportunity for designers, creatives and culture enthusiasts everywhere, to experience the work of award-winning, pioneering and original design from Barcelona.
In addition to the works which will be on display at 2022NQ, each agency has also been issued with their own individual letter of the exhibition title, ‘BCN:MCR’, and will submit their own unique, creative response to this. Sedgwick will be completing the 6th letter with his own contribution and the finished collaboration will culminate in an exclusive piece of design, that is a reflexive element of the exhibition and a unique reminder of the relationship between the two cities. This will be on display at the newly opened TAKK coffee shop, 6 Tariff Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester.
An exclusive talk will also be held at 2022NQ on Friday 22nd February featuring Borja Martinez, of Lo Siento and Pablo Juncadella, of Mucho, Rocio Martinavarro from Mayúscula and Veronica Fuerta from Hey Studio. They will each be providing an insight into their way of working and the graphic design scene in Barcelona, plus there will be an opportunity for a Q & A session. Limited edition tickets go on sale soon. Purchasing information and further details will also be announced shortly via @bcnmcr.
‘BCN:MCR’ has also been generously supported by, Team Impression, GF Smith Papers, Estrella Damm, Institute Cervantes and Takk.
‘BCN:MCR’ launches on 21 February 2013, from 6:00pm at 2022NQ, 20 – 22 Dale Street, M1 1EZ. All welcome.
