Poster, Los Angeles, a Film by Sarah Morris

This is a Poster. It was designed by M/M (Paris), Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak and made for (as the client) Parallax Film Productions. It is dated 2005 and we acquired it in 2015. Its medium is screenprint on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Sarah Morris creates experimental films within the context of the art world. Her films are displayed in museums and art spaces surrounded by her own related paintings; they are announced and promoted with posters designed by M/M (Paris). Each film and its accompanying poster explores a city or architectural landscape. Los Angeles (2005) is a study of image production within the decentered plan and complex architecture of Los Angeles; the poster uses the title of the film as a prism.

It is credited Gift of M/M (Paris).
