Zgraf 12

As we at Lobagola support art and culture, we can proudly present this cultural manifestation Zgraf12.  This international exhibition of graphic design and visual communications is held in Zagreb every three years.

This unique exhibition will be held from 9th January till 24th January 2017 in Lauba – People and Art House.  Lauba made a huge impact on the Croatian arts and this manifestation is additional proof. Promoter of Zgarf12 is the Croatian Association of Artists of Applied Arts (ULUPUH) and this years theme is ‘Social Reruns’ which is signed by Rick Poynor, famous British design theorist. Visual identity is signed by the collective Oaza  which is consisting of 6 excellent designer (Nina Bačun, Roberta Bratović, Ivana Borovnjak, Maja Kolar, Tina Ivezić and Ana-Marija Poljanec). Time, flow, light, change, repeat – are the main concepts that the designer read out from a central theme.

Very interesting parts of this years programme is Eduzgraf which is conceived as a creative educational training platform and Personal Connoisseur where you can meet and talk to some of the most interesting Croatian and foreign designers and theorists. Zgraf will be also held at the Gallery ULUPUH, from 16th January until 13th February, independent retrospective exhibition of the last years winner of Zgraf Grand Prix, the Swiss design studio Peng Peng.

The goal of Zgraf is to present current design production to professional and general public, to encourage exhibition and educational activity in the field of design, to enable young designers first professional experience, to strengthen connection of local and regional design community and to raise the level of public discourse on the design.
