帆布外,玩字体: <wbr>北京设计周CONVERSE字体展览 <wbr>OFF <wbr>CANVAS: <wbr>A <wbr>STREET-LEVEL <wbr>TYPOGRAPHY <wbr>EXHIBITION

In support of Beijing Design Week, Converse presents a street-level exhibition of typography design, canvassing the imperial city in hidden places that mark China’s thriving creative subcultures. 


With over one hundred years behind the brand, the exhibition celebrates two things vital to Converse’s heritage of storytelling – words and type. OFF CANVAS showcases the work of international and local artists renown for their artistry of words. Culling from the diverse worlds of graphic design, art and graffiti, the installations reveal communities and unexpected canvases within the worlds of independent art, music, fashion and skate in Beijing.
