Soap Factory X The MVA

Posters and mailers designed by The MVA for Minneapolis exhibition space The Soap Factory. Usually hand-screened by Joshua because he’s a glutton for punishment. Or because he gets a weird thrill from watching the prints pile up.

Free shipping in the US! Outside the US, we add $2 per item to Canada, $10 per item everywhere else. All posters ship rolled in a tube.

“Resonating Bodies” exhibition poster

To illustrate the relationships between the curator and each of the exhibiting artists in this group show we created an infographic that allows you to see who has worked with whom, where they collaborated and the nature of their collaboration. All happening in a big 60’s style Swiss style.

“R.U.R.” exhibition poster

32.00

A big “Swiss” statement and an answer to the question, “How can a designer show their hand in their own work?”.

Using mouse-tracking software we recorded every time we worked on this project (those really big black circles? That’s from the cursor sitting in one place while I looked through paper swatch books or sent emails related to the project) to create an image that documents the posters own creation.

18 x 24” 3-color screenprint, signed and numbered edition of 100.

Haunted Basement 2011 poster (MVA X Pippi Zornoza)

44.00

Back in 2011 we proposed that our friend Pippi Zornoza (Providence artist/Dirt Palace resident) design a commemorative print for The Soap Factory’s Haunted Basement. It ended being a light collaboration in that Pippi sent us a envelope full of photocopies and we remixed them and added type. The result being this cool, occult-y poster.

Gold, silver and black screenprint on black 100# coverstock from French Paper. Signed artists proofs.
