DESCRIPTION

This fall, UPPERCASE is going old school. The "Old School" theme celebrates the aesthetics of twentieth century education through an art exhibition and companion book, as well as curated objects. It is inspired by vintage flash cards, old desks, biology class, science fairs, crayons, card catalogs, textbooks, class photos, teachers, yearbooks, lunchboxes, gym class, maps, lockers, report cards, film strips, recess, spelling, chalk... and the list goes on!

 

In addition to drawing, painting and collage, we will be exploring old school technology such as typewriters, film projections and polaroid photography.
