In partnership with the Municipality of Milan and San Francisco Design Week, a dematerialized initiative will spread around the two cities during their respective Design Weeks, April in Milan and June in San Francisco. Images jointly created by a group of Italian and Bay Area graphic designers will be printed as billboards and bill-posted in strategic urban locations.
Geoff Kaplan (CCA Senior Adjunct professor of Design) and Marina Pugliese selected the designers and matched them in pairs, each team setting their own specific rules and producing two images in a spirit of the broadest freedom. During SF Design Week (June 2-9), a smaller scale version of the billboards will be on view in the atrium gallery of the CCA Hooper Graduate Center.
Tuesday, June 1 – 5:30pm — SEE THE PICS
CCA Graduate Center Atrium Gallery, 184 Hooper Street
(next door the CCA SF Main Campus)
