Give-and-Take: Poster Design by Nancy Skolos and Thomas Wedell

AIGA San Diego is pleased to promote the following community event as we think it may be of interest to our members; this event is not hosted by AIGA.

This exhibition, curated by AIGA member Susan Merritt, runs April 19-July 22, 2018.

Give-and-Take: Poster Design by Nancy Skolos and Thomas Wedell presents the work of this graphic design twosome, who pioneered the medium from a traditional analog approach to its contemporary inclusion of digital technology, beginning in 1989. Working collaboratively for over 30 years, Skolos and Wedell have consistently pushed the boundaries of art, design, and technology by moving fluidly between graphic design and photography, analog and digital, 2D and 3D forms. With a passion for process, the artists build elaborate models that are photographed and digitally combined, blending graphic elements and typography as foundational aspects for their graphic design.
