Poster, Walls of the City
This is a Poster. It was designed by Alexander Gelman. It is dated 1992 and we acquired it in 1998. Its medium is screenprint on blue wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This composition references the incidental collages of torn posters that may be found layered on the street. We perceive two planes (two sheets of paper) because the lines of text that seem to be printed on each one align visually.
