ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Marc Treib: Recent Posters (Peripheral Ephemera) is an exhibition of approximately fifty posters from the years between 1972 and 1979. Most of the posters were executed for the Department of Architecture lecture series, University of California, Berkeley, and deal with architecturally related themes. The posters are generally 18” x 24”, though there are both smaller (to 11” x 15″) and larger (24” x 90″) examples. Diazo (blue, black or brownline), an inexpensive process, was used for the majority, in addition to offset lithography.
Marc Treib is a trained architect whose scholarship bridges architecture and landscape architecture. His interests include Scandinavian and Japanese architecture and gardens, cemetery design, landscape history, and Bay Area modern architecture and landscape. He has also written a book entitled A Guide to the Gardens of Kyoto (1980). Treib earned a BA from the University of Florida, and an MA in Architecture, as well as a second MA in Design, from the University of California, Berkeley.
Marc Treib: Recent Posters (Peripheral Ephemera) is supported by the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Art and Design’s College of Architecture, Art and Urban Planning.
This exhibition is also funded by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
This exhibition is organized in conjunction with the University Galleries at the University of California, Santa Barbara and opened there before traveling to Gallery 400. A catalogue of approximately 64 pages published by Poltroon Press accompanied the exhibition.
