The Urban Institute of Contemporary Art hosts a unique fundraising event every year that combines live art with a live auction. Aptly titled “Live Coverage,” it brings onlookers into the studio setting to watch artists at work and bid on the finished pieces. Conduit has been pleased to design the event’s poster series since its inception, using the opportunity to explore a variety of printing methods and ideas about making art…and watching it be made.
For the inaugural year, we celebrated the voyeuristic nature of the event by choosing retro images focused on watching and surveillance. The limited-edition screen print poster stirred the community’s curiosity and resulted in a great turnout.
