Hey friends! Our next Photography Club event will be a fieldtrip to the Japan Foundation Gallery for their exhibit A Sense of Movement: Japanese Sports Posters. This will probably more centred on graphic design than photography per se but the two fields definitely inform each other and it’s such a great opportunity to both visit the foundation and see some fantastic prints!

Co-presented by The Japan Foundation, Toronto and the DNP Foundation for Cultural Promotion, this is an exhibition that explores the connection between Japanese graphic design and sports.

Prior to Toronto, the in-person presentations in Sydney (October 2021 – January 2022) and in Paris (December 2022 – March 2023) featured a selection of 31 posters by eight Japanese graphic designers. 

This exhibition then arrived in Toronto with an extended range of exhibits, a total of 71 pieces by 24 designers from young professionals who are currently active in the field to great masters who led the dawn of graphic design. The exhibition introduces the means by which these uniquely creative minds convey sport and its “sense of movement” through two-dimensional printed media.

Here in this extended selection the compositional beauty, dynamism and humour expressed within these Japanese posters are communicated through the perspective of sports. You experience the fruit of Japan’s rich graphic design culture during the half century between the first Olympic Games in Japan and the present time.
