LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program of the 14th Street Y that uses classic Jewish texts to inspire the creation of art, dialogue and study. For the 2017–2018 event season termed LABAlive, the program’s artist fellows premiere new works inspired by the ancient texts surrounding the theme of War & Peace.
Working with the Artistic Director and Marketing team, we wanted to let this year's look represent the two dichotomies of the theme.
Without delving into tropes of illustrated doves and war heads, both war and peace find representation in a single object. The shallow type allows the symbol to remain the focus, along with the splash of a siren-yellow warning.
