Unsanctioned posters are the wallpaper of New York’s surfaces, announcing political messages, fashion lines, multi-colored mobile phones, and hip hop albums. Come envision the imagery that might adorn New York City’s future streets at the Wild Posting Futures BBQ. Work with custom futuring tools and thought diagrams to imagine diverse future messages of businesses, services, artists or propagandists.
Bring your laptop and some weenies; we’ll supply graphic design consultation, a large format printer, the BBQ, and the futuring method.
Install and exhibit your work at Eyebeam's Storefront. Exhibition will run from May 24 - June 1.
Take home a wheatpasting kit and your original print.
Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings asked Bay Area architects, city planners, and transportation engineers, “What would you do if you didn’t have to worry about budgets, bureaucracy, politics, or physics?” Ideas from these conversations were then merged, developed, and perhaps mildly exaggerated by the artists to create a series of 6 posters for the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Art on Market Street Program.
