Custom Design


The exhibition, web and catalog design for the group exhibition Finesse at the Wallach Art Gallery in Columbia University. The show inspired by a quote on the act of finessing by artist Louise Lawler was curated art historian Leah Pires and showcases the work by Fia Backström, Pheobe D’Heurle, Jill Magid, Lucie McKenzie, Carissa Rodriguez and Karin Schneider. The design played with the notion of sleight of hand and playing card magic to capture the idea of finessing visually.
