In June of 2015 the exhibition “Poesia Agora” (Poetry Now) brought the works of almost 500 contemporary poets from all over Brazil to the Museum of Portuguese Language in São Paulo.
The lettering artists Gui Menga and Lygia Pires were called to write 30 complete poems and 200 verses that together made up a third of the exhibition.
We received complete freedom to chose styles while minding legibility and keeping the same formatting defined by each author. In one week we wrote over 2.500 words.
The exhibition was open to the public for 3 months and it was a complete success!
