Call for Typeforce 7 Submissions

Calling all Typographic All-Stars! It’s time to show what you’ve got. Submissions for the 7th Annual Typeforce Exhibition are open now through Friday, January 15th.

Every year, curators Ed Marzsewski & Dawn Hancock select 20+ installations to be exhibited in Chicago’s Typeforce exhibition. Historically, these works have comprised some of the best type or lettering-based art being created by emerging artists and designers in our city and beyond.

Proposal Expectations
• PDF file with a description of the intended work(s) & how you might install it on/in a 10’×10’ wall/space
• Images of proposed work or examples of your previous work if not yet completed

Ideally, proposals should be for a series of pieces or have the ability to occupy a 10’×10′ space. Larger pieces will be considered, however we generally do not select works that do not fill the 10’x10’ space. The show is intended to showcase artistic-based works, not typeface design. If you are unfamiliar with past shows, we highly recommend looking at the hashtag #typeforce on Instagram or the photos on our Facebook page.

Group entries and international proposals are welcome. Awardees must be onsite to install the week prior to the opening.

Submit your Proposal by January 15:
