Colourful swing party / Swing culture and applied arts

metamatic:taf is glad to present the exhibition Swink which opens on Monday 20 May and will run until 26 May.

Chicago in the 20s, Europe in the 40s, ruffled skirts and the dancing atmosphere reminds us our love of swing and so we create the Swink Project.

The exhibition takes its name from the synthesis of the words swing and ink and is aiming to combine the swing culture with the applied arts. Twenty eight graphic design companies and freelancers get inspired by music and design art posters that will be exposed in ten rooms of metamatic:taf.

Each participating designer, has been given four basic key words (movement, atmosphere, clothing, musical instruments) and is free to use whatever technique he wishes so as to create a poster that will visualize his own take on swing.

The exhibition will open on Monday 20 May with a colourful swing party, which will include a live show by Belleville, a silkscreen-printing workshop by tind and more surprises.
