A poster, collaboratively designed by Erin Hauber, Katie Bachler, Juliette Bellocq and Lauren Mackler is on exhibit now as part of Collective Show LA (CSLA).

Lauren Mackler invited Bachler, Bellocq and Hauber to join her in a temporary design collective and commissioned the newsprint piece on behalf of her art space Public Fiction. The poster was distributed throughout Los Angeles in the week leading up to the show’s opening and is on display in the gallery.

"It is exciting to be a part of Collective Show LA, to be in a group (Public Fiction) among groups contributing to something greater than all of us,” explained Hauber. “We found inspiration in the show's collaborative spirit and asked ourselves 'what does it look like to work together and find the balance necessary to make something good?' We ended up building a mobile in Lauren's space one afternoon. Photographs of that mobile taken from different angles became the poster that's our contribution to CSLA."
