‘Rite de passage’ features typographic work from students who followed or are following (typo)graphic education in Hasselt. The exhibition shows:
a) typefaces designed by bachelor and master students from the past 12 years at PXL-MAD School of Arts (under the supervision of Ann Bessemans and her READSEARCH colleagues);
b) a set of splendid typographical artefacts created by students under the supervision of the Graphic teachers.

Beside, Rite de passage also gives a platform to:
a) alumni who would like to exhibit more of their typographic work;
b) our student Kenneth Vanoverbeke who received a TDC scholarship;
c) the work of Jos Geusens (former student of Kristoffel Boudens) a Belgian stone letter-carver who gives workshops in Hoepertingen.

(Typo)Graphic Teachers: Ann Bessemans, Geoffrey Brusatto, Tom Lambeens, María Pérez, Maarten Renckens, Luc Rerren, Monique Rutten, Katleen Verjans & Johan Vandebosch
