The Seattle Poster Shows


Over the course of a decade I organized a series of poster exhibitions, primarily for Bumbershoot, Seattle’s biggest music and arts festival, culminating with The Seattle-Havana-Tehran Poster Show (aka “The SHT Show”). As part of this self-initiated, city-to-city, exchange project, I travelled to each location and partnered with designers and curators to visually pair the best of poster design from each city. Ultimately I installed ten total exhibitions viewed by thousands, gave talks at universities from Beirut to Boise, and made the most incredible friends around the world.
