This exhibition places the spotlight on posters in CCGA’s DNP Graphic Design Archives Collection that in some way deal with ties and bonds of various kinds. In the immediate wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami disaster, the word “kizuna” (絆) , meaning bond, was often seen and heard. But now, 10 years later, as memories of the 2011 disaster gradually fade, occasions when “kizuna” is mentioned are far fewer. By looking at how graphic design, as a medium of communication, has expressed ties and bonds, and then reconsidering today, 10 years after the earthquake disaster, the graphic expressions found there, this exhibition examines how such expression has evolved.
