    This post show a fragment of an exhibition wall at the Fundacio La Caixa in Barcelona. It’s an early use of Typotheque’s Fedra Serif A, and a rare showing of a punt volat (“flying point”) in the Fonts In Use collection of Catalan/Valencian-language uses. This exclusively Catalan variation on the interpunct used in the black line in the middle in the word “col·lecció” indicates that two neighbouring characters l each belong to a separate syllable.

    From Creative enterprise / Contemporary Art between Museum and Marketplace:

    One can only speculate what the artists in question might have thought of Pardo’s 2004 reinstallation of the collection of Fundacio “La Caixa” in Barcelona, which presented works from the institution’s collection of minimal art in a room dominated by rich orange-red walls (specified as machine-carved MDF) shaped with drapery-like undulations and also dominated by five of Pardo’s large, chandelier-style lamps.
