10th Bienal Poster

Authorship: Maria Argentina Bibas

“This was an example of dialog between the languages of the plastic arts and graphic design, rather than submission of one to the other. ln this case, the subtleties of Op Art inform modem design – Iet us recall that they have a natural affinity – with the presence of the most prominent members of this movement at the 9th and 10th Bienals. The graphic solution lends the diagonal black band the task of moving into the field of the poster, pushing the thread of lines, shifting the upper vertical axis, and, as a result of this operation, creating a vibrating optical effect”. Bienal 50 Anos, 1951-2001, 2001, p.297
