PROJECT SPACE TAKEOVER #5 | OVERPRINT: POSTER EXPLORATION FROM MFA DESIGN

Overprint Project is a student based group that brings together MFA design students from all levels to design posters—both independently and collaboratively—for the lectures, workshops, and events hosted by the MFA Design department. Over the past six years, various incarnations of Overprint Project have provided MFA Design students extracurricular opportunities to work quickly, explore, and experiment through the medium of the poster. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see several years’ worth of student-generated ephemera presented both retrospectively and concurrently. Through the work on display, viewers can observe the shifting visual and procedural interests of MFA Design students over time, and then experiment with poster construction themselves by making a small scale poster using stamps and stickers.
