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.
The 9th edition poster featured densely packed hand lettering, replicating the crowded nature and lively dialog of the event. We produced the posters as limited-edition screen prints, a technique we had last used for the 2004 event.
