  • UCLA "Twenty-three Posters 1981/2017" exhibition in Shanghai

Papers from the VENT NOUVEAU series were used for the 2017 posters in the Posters Project
that commemorates joint research by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Waseda University, Tokyo.
The project revisits the Japanese traditional performing arts theme of a series of
posters created in 1981 under the curation of design critic Masaru Katsumi.
The show in Shanghai exhibits twelve posters from 1981 and eleven new posters from 2017.
