The light you receive from the moon, is as much as the crack in the room (Mowlavi). The exhibition shows work of Iranian graphic designer Reza Abedini.

The contemporary designs of Abedini are inspired by his appreciation of the rich Persian Calligraphic tradition. In recognition of his innovative application of the knowledge and skills of Iran's artistic heritage, renewing them and making them exciting again, Reza Abedini will receive the Prince Claus Award on 13 December. The Dutch graphic designers Irma Boom and Hans Wolbers designed the exhibition with Reza Abedini.

On friday 15 december, Reza Abedini will deliver a public lecture in the auditorium of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Starting 16:00.
