Poster, Cabbage Thoughts, 2009

This is a Poster. It was designed by Sulki & Min, Sulki Choi and Min Choi. It is dated 2009 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

This poster was designed to promote a performance entitled Cabbage Thoughts given by the Korean dancer Park Na Hoon and his company in 2009. Sulki & Min designed a typeface that creates letterforms out of layered curving bands. The resulting characters give the illusion of depth, which is heightened by their printing in shiny ink. Beneath them is a sketchily rendered image of a cabbage, the primary ingredient in the Korean national dish Kimchi, and an important symbolic reference point for the dance production.

This object was donated by Sulki & Min. It is credited Gift of Sulki & Min.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 84 × 59.4 cm (33 1/16 × 23 3/8 in.)
