undergraduate exhibiton catalogue

publication design

I was part of the design team that designed the bilingual exhibition catalogue for the 2019 Undergraduate Exhibition, Material Trace, at the FoFa Gallery. The two books of the gate fold design contain the English texts on the left and the French texts on the right. The concept and inspiration for this publication stemmed from the scientific themes surrounding the art pieces in the exhibition, such as Peter Berra’s Artifact series documenting material objects that were tossed aside in a clinical and sterile way, or Erin Berry’s Pathologia and A65-39, works that both use pathological photographic slides. Science inspired features we used throughout the layout of the catalogue include graphics resembling file folders and “signed” scientific documents using the featured artists’ signatures.
