“The beautiful people”

 

“The beautiful people”

 

The Concept

“The Beautiful People”, consists of an analysis of Laura's typographic work where she and the curator wanted to highlight its relational character since it arises from the interaction and synergies between disciplines and between people, the exhibition is the result of this shared reflection. 
The way in which Eider Corral, the curator, presents the exhibition is more looking forward than backward, a kind of prospective monograph where the pieces on display respond to different subjects and relate to other graphic design practices: the authorship, the education, the collaborations, the workshop, the genre perspective, the vernacular typography, the expressiveness and its ability to connecting cultures. Laura's practice around typography is almost total and the exhibition aims to collect that.
 

The Exhibition

The Exhibition has different parts: a “Corpus Room”, and the“Qandus Room”.

The “Corpus Room” presents a walk from calligraphy to lettering to typography, displaying the relationship between disciplines, starting by introducing Laura's calligraphy in action, Type-Ø-Tones, some typefaces (Rumba, Magasin, Lalola and Multi) and some wordmarks in different lettering styles. The vitrines serve to display Girard Sansusie, some lettering work in use, Rumba's sketches, and the book “How to create typefaces” in three editions.
Lettering Extravaganza's posters are presented as a mural piece in two parts, and finally the “Sisters Wall” as an explosion of words that claim to women's relevance not only in design but in society.
