With the exhibition Mirko Ilić: The Second Before the Catasrophe – Comic Strip, Illustration and Design curated by Marko Golub & Dejan Kršić Dubrovnik public will have a chance to find out why is Mirko Ilić after more than four decades still one of the most interesting graphic designers and illustrators and why he is a global star.

In Lazareti – Creative Hub of Dubrovnik comic strips, illustrations and posters from different phases of Ilić's carrier will be exhibited, most of them from last 10-15 years.

According to Kršić&Golub, wherever we may happen to find ourselves in the huge illustration, design and comic strip oeuvre of Mirko Ilić, we shall come upon powerful and memorable images, complex thoughts conveyed in pithy, effective and communicative ways, an artist capable of summoning up the most dramatic understandings of the world in which we live without a bit of literalness or superficial expressiveness. Ilić, for example , by “illustration” does not illustrate an event, a proposition or an opinion, rather gives us an image that drives out thinking about topic, as a cog drives time in a clock movement, gives us an unexpected angle on a topic that a moment before we had imagined we knew enough about.

The public in Lazareti will also be able to enjoy other aspects of Ilić’s professional activity besides comic strips, illustrations and posters, especially theatre posters, from different phases of Ilić's carrier; they will get to know him as an initiator, curator and explorer, which is seldom presented alongside his design works. Nine of HIS books on design, mostly co-authored with Steven Heller have been published up to date: starting with ‘Genius Moves: 100 Icons of Graphic Design’ (2001.), ‘Handwritten’ (2004.), ‘Design of Dissent’ (with Miltonom Glaser, 2005.), ‘Anatomy of Design’ (2006.), ‘Stop, Think, Go, Do: How Typography and Graphic Design Influence Behavior’ (2012.), ‘Lettering Large’ (2013.), ‘Presenting Shakespeare: 1,100 Posters from Around the World’ (2015.), ‘Head to Toe: The Nude in Graphic Design’ (2018.) including the much enlarged and thematically updated edition ‘The Design of Dissent’, subtitled ‘Greed, Nationalism, Alternative Facts, and the Resistance’ (again with M. Glaser, 2017.).
