In Dear 1968,... artist Sadie Barnette recontextualizes, alters, and confronts personal political and familial history through drawings, photos, and her father's FBI file from his time in the Black Panther Party. The exhibition was organized by the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery at Haverford College. For the exhibition identity, I drew inspiration from the wallpapers, redactions, and other security ephemera on the documents. Magentas and purples feature prominently in Dear 1968,... so I took great pleasure in using pops of Rhodamine against neutral whites and grays. The catalog images were even printed with Rhodamine built into the separations to heighten the impact of Barnette's images.
