Biennale internationale de design graphique

In-person Event

Le Signe, centre national du graphisme is organising the 3rd edition of the Biennale internationale de design graphique from 27 May to 26 September 2021 in Chaumont.

The theme of this third edition “VIRAL” is also the subject of an exhibition of the same name. It is an invitation for the spectator to reflect upon this term, which refers to the spreading as well as the diffusion of information, images and also those diverging interpretations we make of them.
