TSBBWA – Taipei, Feb 2015 & Auckland, Oct 2015


These Stories Began Before We Arrived, curated by Jamie Hanton, Charlotte Huddleston and Bruce E. Phillips, was held in association with the 2015 Taipei International Book Exhibition. The exhibition was a collaboration between Canterbury University, St Paul St and Te Tuhi and showed artwork by New Zealand and Taiwanese artists. 

For the initial Taipei exhibition I produced digital and printed invitations, exhibition vinyl and signage, and a booklet with images and writing for each artist. I relied heavily on the use of risograph red and blue, establishing a striking yet simple visual language for the exhibition and accompanying material.


The exhibition then had a second iteration for Artweek Auckland as a Te Tuhi Offsite event at the Wynyard Quarter in downtown Auckland. The original signage was edited slightly to suit the change of location, with the addition of a billboard. The booklet was offered as a digital download from the Te Tuhi website.
