Gratuitous Type Issue 4: Peep Show
Exhibition at KK Outlet London (a project of KesselsKramer) celebrating the launch of Gratuitous Type 4. The show featured Emmet Byrne, Claire Huss, Kokoro & Moi, Tim Lahan, Letterproeftuin, Pure Magenta, Raw Color, Table of Contents and Dries Wiewauters. Letterproeftuin, an open-source design studio and subject of Issue 4’s centerfold, was on hand for the opening reception, producing limited edition prints for the issue. The gallery’s window was covered with a life-size take on the issue’s spotted cover, while an acetate curtain separated the gallery from Letterproeftuin’s workspace. The show’s improvisational installation, along with its colorful walls, vitrines, and plinths, underscored the magazine’s playful ethos.
