Anthony McCall – catalogue design

British (based in New York) avant-garde artist and minimalist Anthony McCall was commissioned by Dark Mofo to show three groups of works in Hobart, Tasmania: Landscape for Fire (1972), Solid Light Works (2005–13) and a new work, he had especially developed for Tasmania: Night Ship (2015). The Museum of Old and New Art asked me to come up with a concept and design for the catalogue of these artworks, which was to accompany the exhibition in June 2015. For Anthony his conceptual hand drawings were just as important as the photographs of the final works. The Night Ship performance was first to be seen during the Dark Mofo Festival itself, therefore we chose to produce a ‘naked’ catalogue first and a dust cover documenting the final artwork and produced after the show. We needed a voucher for people to claim the dust jacket, so I decided to cover the naked catalogue with a censorship strip, which could easily be removed from the cover and had all the necessary info on the back. To quote the words of the Mona media manager: Anthony was a delight to work with. The catalogue is available here >IMG_3502 IMG_3503
