DESCRIPTION

Diffusing the lines between form and content in graphic design, Dexter Sinister creates
presentations and publications that collapse the distinctions between editing, design, production
and distribution. Designed as a walk-in-caption and typeset in their newly devised Meta-the-
difference-between-the-two-Font. font, this exhibition offers a series of frames with which
to consider the usual channels of material, subject matter and set-up in exhibition displays.

Dexter Sinister is the compound name of Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt. As a group, Dexter Sinister works as a publishing imprint, a workshop/bookstore based in New York, and an exhibiting artist making art shows and events. David graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1993, Yale University in 1999, and formed the design studio O-R-G in 2000. Stuart graduated from the University of Reading in 1994, the Werkplaats Typografie in 2000, and co-founded the journal Dot Dot Dot the same year.
