PUBLIC prepared environmental graphic design for the UBC Museum of Anthropology exhibition Man Ray, African Art and the Modernist Lens. The exhibit explores the relationship of anthropological study to art of the 1920s and 30s, in particular ideas of exoticism, abstraction and surrealism. Graphics were simply applied to surfaces as signage, light projection and large-format photo murals. The exhibition, designed by PUBLIC collaborator, David Cunningham, quietly and effectively complemented the works on display, and received notable favourable reviews.
