The 2013 graduating class presented an end of the year BFA Thesis show titled "___ ___, yeah." from April 4 through April 22. I was the head Designer of the show. The name was inspired by the constant undertone heard in any gallery and highlighted the works of painters, graphic designers, photographers, sculptors, printmakers, and media artists.
The twelve graphic designers in the exhibition collaboratively branded and marketed the show, including the website, signage, and this broadsheet newspaper. It details the exhibiting artists' names and information, and folds down to mailer size. We sent, hung, and distributed an edition of 1000.
My personal Senior Thesis project. A charity luncheon. A performance art piece.
All guests were greeted by a maître d', seated with a full place setting, and handed a menu. Their servers, however, offered only small paper sculptures set on glass plates, course after course. Each sculpture represented the body's reaction to food. The entire meal was meant to induce a feeling of hunger. All proceeds went to the New Brunswick Community Food Alliance & Elijah's Promise.
The invitation and photos from the event are below.
