Idol Structures Exhibition Catalog for the DePaul Art Museum
The Idol Structures exhibition by Chicago-based artist Matt Siber, probes the systems of corporate and mass-media communication that permeate the urban landscape. Rather than focusing on the message itself, Siber emphasizes the physical infrastructure that delivers visual messaging.
Thirst designed the exhibition catalog as a collection of architectures that reflect the work they’re representing. Essays are collected into a booklet, Photographs are each printed on individual cards, and sculptures are printed on an accordion fold. The pieces are assembled into a wood veneer slip case that recalls materiality of Siber’s sculptures.
