Publikum Calendar emerged fifteen years ago amidst the turmoil and war in Serbia. Co-founded by George Mill and Nada Ray, it has grown into an international collaborative publication, publishing works by Serbian and international artists, most notably Paula Scher, Mirko Ilic, Oliviero Toscani, Marina Abramovic, David Byrne, Barbara Kruger, Tadanori Yoko, Slavimir Stojanovic, Karlssonwilker, Andrea Dezso, and more.
The 2008 Publikum Calendar designed by Sean Adams features works by 12 international graphic artists from Asia, Africa, Europe and America. It is a multi-disciplinary project consisting of a wall calendar, a book, a video documentary, and lecture series and exhibitions. 2008 Publikum Calendar exhibition at AIGA National Design Center is at public view from December ’07- February 22, ’08.
On February 22, at the exhibition closing reception, lovely Debbie Millman, the 2008 Publikum Calendar curator, will moderate a talk with Chip Kidd, Luba Lukova, Matteo Bologna (designers featured in 2008 edition) and George Mill & Nada Ray (Publikum Calendar founders).
