The City College of New York

We designed this poster for The City College of New York, which sponsors a lecture series on “Science and Society” at their historic Harlem campus. When South African artist William Kentridge was invited to participate in a moderated conversation on his video installation The Refusal of Time (2012), a thirty-minute meditation on time and space, the complex legacies of colonialism and industry, and the artist’s own intellectual life, they asked us to design a poster to help publicize the event. Fortunately they were able to provide us with a terrific, high-resolution photo of the installation as it had appeared at the Metropolitan Museum of Art several years earlier, which always makes our job easier. The resulting poster was displayed at the college’s campus and contributed to drawing what turned out to be a packed audience to the event.

A film of the original video installation can be seen here.
