Yes Oui Si is a self-curated fictional group exhibition that brings together six contemporary artists working in different mediums and all whom concentrate on the material qualities of language—visual, aural, and beyond. The exhibition catalog showcases essays, interviews and a plate section.
The title itself is text art. Yes in three different languages. Sounding like "yes we see". Cover screen printed to achieve bright colors. The chapter dividers showcase the book's personality coming out. The book is talking to the reader. Pure language. Custom font created by following an old sign painting equation in order to fit the name of each artist without breaking any letterform rules.

Over the span of a 14 week term we investigated several prompts through the medium of the artist book. The artist book differs from other forms of sequential storytelling in that the object itself is the work of art. More than just a study of type and image, these books were the vehicle for the creation of content as well as an exploration into the book as a medium.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) was founded by Columbia College Chicago in 1976. My strategy for the rebrand was to rename it. The C. What often is word of mouth for residents translated into its core identity. It's also an audio word play because it sounds like "see". A very important part of photography. The C relocated to Los Angeles and cut its ties to Columbia College in hopes to proclaim a new era for the museum. The museum also developed a new system of hiring established photographers such as: Catherine Opie to curate shows showcasing their favorite up and coming young photographers. The new visual identity gives homage to storage, memory, and a box of light. Multiple reads for multiple generations. Come C The C.

BACKHAUL is a 14-week research collaboration between Bryan Chu, Jimena Gamio and Juan Karlo Muro on the topic of language. Each final piece moves freely across disciplines and mediums celebrating the synesthetic qualities of language rather than reducing it to its pure form. Twelve pieces have been translated into four broadcasts, with hopes to continue a conversation with our relationship to language.
