Allegorical Procedures: Bay Area Collage, 1950-Present
This show surveys collage practices in the Bay Area, including related practices of decollage, assemblage, photomontage and detournement. Collage will be conceived broadly as an "allegorical" technique of signification that relies on methods of "confiscation, superimposition and fragmentation," as Benjamin Buchloh observed in his 1980 theorization of collage and montage.
For this project, I created an original type treatment identity that captured the exhibition's concept yet remained legible. This identity was incorporated designs for posters, postcards and gallery wall signage.
