Invitation suite to the exhibition opening.

For this exhibition, which incorporates the critical work of contemporary artist Yinka Shonibare within a Gilded-age mansion, we paired two typefaces  — one that’s flowery and another that’s minimalist — in an effort to suggest a new design language that represents a mix of cultures and histories.
