Inspired to Innovate
The AOI presents ‘Inspired to Innovate’, a new exhibition by its members at Hoxton Arches, Hackney, East London. This October, we explore what it means to be innovative in the context of illustration, asking; how can this versatile medium be stretched to its creative limits?
Demonstrating the breadth of exciting new processes being used today, the exhibition includes prints, animations, three-dimensional work, lettering, paper-engineering, and more.
Featuring work by leading experimental illustrators including Laurie Rowan, Anna Mill, Sam Pierpoint and Doug John Miller, the exhibition showcases an array of work using new apps and software as well as traditional mediums. Many of the illustrators featured in the exhibition will show work that is a call to arms to inspire those in other industries to innovate environmentally and technologically.
The exhibition features current members at varying stages of their careers. It is curated by the AOI (also known for the acclaimed World Illustration Awards), who have programmed a series of events for practicing and aspiring illustrators that delve into what it means to be innovative in terms of practice and business.
