CM04 Archives.

Every CM poster is inspired by a poster genre of the past. CM01 was clearly vaudevillian. CM02 was riffng on the seventies revival of art deco tropes applied to psychedelic aims. CM03 revised a Barnum and Bailey Circus poster. The “living sculpture” centerpiece (which was all white and maybe would have been a pile of human actors all painted white like marble) was turned chocolate brown. I guess I was thinking about my idea of Utopian gentrification.  For the very special Carousel Microcinema #04, I couldn’t help but nod to Kerry James Marshall’s affection for old sci-fi movies (as well as my own) and revise the notion of alien invitations towards more Afro-futurist aims.
