Living Elvis

Examining the legacy of ‘The King’ in visual culture

A catalogue designed for Living Elvis, an RMIT Gallery contemporary art exhibition. Opening on the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, the exhibition combined wit and irony with thoughtful critique and an engagement with the ongoing legacy of Elvis in contemporary culture.

Black and silver foil stamping on matte black paper set the tone of the exhibition on the catalogue cover, with a handcrafted title suggestive of neon lettering. Lyrical typographic layouts support the presentation of the artworks.
