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.
Conduit pushed the idea of a limited-edition poster to the extreme, producing just one handmade poster that was auctioned off to benefit the UICA. This highly collectible, one-of-a-kind item was created as a collage of vintage books and magazines, featuring onlookers as part of the design.
