"Valentina. Una vita con Crepax" is a retrospective on Guido Crepax’s works across different fields: comics, advertising, product packaging, interior decoration and more.
Crepax is best known for his comics but this success has often cast a shadow over his previous and parallel career as an illustrator of a different kind. This exhibition presents an artist with comprehensive expertise and his projects are exposed displaying his talent across all disciplines.
For this exhibition, we worked in close relationship with the Crepax Archive (Archivio Crepax) which curated the setting and the structure of the show. We designed and produced the publication released on the occasion of the exhibition, working on various phases of the book, from the editing to the layout, choosing an approach to highlight the intersection between the different disciplines which characterize Crepax's career.
We also worked on the public campaign for a series of exhibition posters. For these posters we decided to crop and use different parts of the same drawing, to present the act of framing as one of the main devices used by the artist to articulate his work.
