Summer of Love Trading Cards, 2017

Kate Haug with Ivan Uranga

Twelve trading cards for the San Francisco Art Commission’s Art on Market Street Kiosk Program. The series re-purposes the trading card’s popular vernacular form, creating a fictional object, examining the commodification of the Summer of Love and more broadly, history itself. It also questions how history recirculates within our contemporary political and cultural landscape. Zoe Taleporos and Justine Topfer Public Art, Program Managers.
