In 1920, the Art Directors Club (ADC) was established in New York as an organization that brought together advertising talent, and promoted their work as “art.” Each year it holds the ADC Annual Awards competition, judging media, broadcast, print and graphic design from international entries, offering prizes in 220 categories.

This exhibition showcases the 91st ADC Annual Award Black Cube winners, the top prize of the competition, alongside display panels illustrating around 50 works from five categories: Design, Photography, Illustration, Interactive and Advertising. The original works of two Japanese prize winners will also be on display; Aug. 31-Nov. 24.
