30th Annual UBC Art History Graduate Symposium

, ,

In the winter of 2011, The UBC Art History and Visual Arts department asked us to produce a poster and program for their 30th annual graduate symposium. We combined these two items into a single piece that when folded, functioned as a program for the conference.

The title “Contemporary Histories: Intersecting Pasts and Futures” gave us an opportunity to add a dose of levity (by introducing the silhouette of a well known, albeit fictional time-travelling car) to a document that might have otherwise come off as overly sober and austere. Thanks to everyone who understood that this was necessary.
