The Herb Lubalin Lecture Series at Cooper Union

Type Confusion & Color Aggression with Victor Moscoso and Norman Hathaway Special guest lecture open to the public Thursday, Mar. 05, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM admission is free

Norman Hathaway will interview renowned psychedelic poster artist, hand letterer, underground cartoonist and Cooper Union graduate Victor Moscoso. Moscoso will show examples and discuss his wildly influential methodology, which focuses on negative space, confusing-with-color and the boundaries of legibility, along with his days working in San Francisco during the hippie heyday, interactions with musicians and fly-by-night promoters, his working processes and how artwork was prepared for reproduction. Regarded as one of the foremost graphic artists of the 20th century, Moscoso's work is in the collections of The Louvre, The Museum of Modern Art, The Tate Modern, The Whitney Museum of American Art and others.
