The Tekko Exhibitions were established in the year 2000 with the primary goal of creating an autonomous space where graphic designers could exhibit their work and new ideas away from the market place. In order to celebrate design as an aesthetic mode of production, Tekko continues to provide a forum that is removed from its dominant role as a promoter of goods and services by bringing innovative design work into a fine art setting.
Part of our goal is to give Canadian graphic designers a push into the international market by creating a forum that places Canada at the center of a global design community. idN Magazine (Hong Kong) championed Tekko 01 "for putting Canadian design on the map." An important point to note is that before Tekko began there were no exhibitions that solely promoted contemporary graphic designers as a creative practice beyond its market value in Canada. We strongly believe that Tekko will be a long lasting exhibition that caters to dedicated designers and design enthusiasts, and will directly contribute and influence graphic design nationally and internationally. The designers and design studios we choose to exhibit and showcase in this unique manner vary from emerging to established, but all participants share a desire to push the limits of graphic design.
