Coming Soon: Faire Faire, an exhibition about/from/by Revue Faire15 April — 14 May 2023
Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer have worked together as Syndicat since 2012. Their cross-disciplinary practice, taking in self-initiated projects as well as design-based commissions, addresses issues of originality, reproduction, and reproducibility in the context of art today, using their expansive knowledge of printing and manufacturing techniques whether designing books, creating visual identities, or curating exhibitions. Syndicat has actively collaborated with contemporary artists and art centers to create one-of-a-kind visual identity programs, publications, monographs, and artists’ books, leading in 2016 to the creation of ‘Empire’, their own publishing imprint.
An important part of ‘Empire’ is ‘Revue Faire’, a bimonthly graphic design magazine, which is not purely focusing on graphic design. The magazine’s content creators are design theoreticians, educators, and authors, among other roles. It seems more like conducting exhibition performances on various subjects via design commentary and other prose. ‘Revue Faire’ is about doing.
For Enter Enter they will show an overview of the 45 issues so far, alongside work related to ‘Revue Faire’, under the title ‘Faire Faire’.
The exhibition will open Saturday 15th April and be on display until the 14th of May (Thu-Fri-Sat, 1-5PM).
