Arizona State Universities’ Council of Graduate Art Historians asked me to help them design and develop the graphic elements for the annual symposium they have coming up regarding controversy in art. The upcoming symposium features some interesting essays on current issues in the art world.
The concept behind this set of posters was to develop a sampling of some of the most influential and controversial pieces from past and present in order to weave a line of controversy throughout different periods. Softer colors represent the pieces of art that have become more aged, with the more vibrant tones reserved for the “edgy” contemporary works.
I’ll continue to update this as work progresses, the 4th and final poster remains a mystery. Who knows what shadow lurks in the hearts of men?? UPDATE: Apparently Saturn knows because he devours them!
UPDATE 4.20.13 >> 3 Days till the Symposium, and I think I have a more solid feel on what the CoGAH Event Poster will look like:
UPDATE 3.22.13 >> TODAY’S THE DAY! The symposium goes live in less than 12 hours, and just in time we finished the CoGAH branded name cards, Symposium Brochure, and a final print of the Symposium Event Poster. After the jump are all the final materials, with pictures of them live during the event to follow.
