The exhibition my favourite game opens its doors on the 14th of July 2007 at the Public Art Gallery in Ithaca, Greece. The exhibition was organised as a parallel event of the 2007 Ten Images for Ithaca competition. It consists of posters created by designers from different parts of the world, known mostly for their contemporary progressive style and common work method. These are all designers that more or less work in the outskirts of what we call “experimental design”. Free and bold, ready to confound designing facts and conventions and thus creating a team that produces cutting edge design, Xavier Antin (France), Sara de Bondt (United Kingdom), Company (United Kingdom), Eric Ellis (USA), Oded Ezer (Israel), Jare (Switcherland), Richard Niessen (Netherlands) and Andrea Tinnes (Germany), all give their totally personal answer to the theme “my favourite game”.

The technique in which the posters are exhibited is also some kind of a game: each designer had four square areas to design and apply them in any way he/she chose, creating united compositions of different shapes and styles. Subsequently, classic table games, experimental typefaces, mind games, constructions and comments on contemporary urban culture are exhibited together producing a multidimensional multi ethnic composition, offering eight different versions of what a game could be.

On the same day, the exhibition of the contest Ten Images for Ithaca begins, with the ten winning posters at the port promenade and the shortlisted works at the Public Art Gallery.
