SCOTT HUG: HELL TO PAY

29 Apr 2012

Scott Hug, whose collaged pie charts are included in Data Deluge, has a new show right now at Rawson Projects in Brooklyn. Titled Hell to Pay, the show is the second in the gallery’s series of poster projects, in which they invite an artist to design an open-editioned, un-signed poster. Hug designed his posters, pictured above, by remixing found graphics and text from advertising, a process inspired by the little-known California artist/poet/publisher/gallerist/physicist Bern Porter (1911-2004). As Hug puts it in an interview: “Basically, I filter the visual pollution of our printed world via magazines, newspapers, catalogues, junk mail, etc. and export it through a sharpening lens.” Looks good! Up through May 6. More info here.
