Display, a revolving design collective and artistic rubric led by Katherine Walker, presents TYPES, a site-specific exploration of typography as it embodies multiple methods of literary and visual communication, including print design, signage, environmental graphics, and more. Using Chicago writer Claire Keys’ linguistic tales of untranslatable foreign terms as creative content, Display will transform the gallery space into an all-encompassing typographical installation. colum.edu/adgallery
