A Famous Night

The Red Door Gallery is thrilled to have Chris McAuley guest curate an exhibition of his A Famous Night poster project.

Inspired by the North American tradition of collectable, hand-printed, concert posters A Famous Night is a project involving artists, illustrators and designers commissioned produce an original artwork commemorating a fictitious gig of their choosing.

By allowing the artists free reign over the line up, venue and design concept, the resulting posters will offer a unique insight into the possibilities of this form without the usual constraints often imposed by concert promoters, venues and the bands themselves.

Each of the participating artists are internationally renowned in their own field, be it comic art, graphic design, illustration or fine art, which will make for a diverse collection that will appeal to a broad audience of art and music lovers alike.

Our exhibition includes new risograph prints (a selection shown above) by Sophie Alda,Rose Blake, Morgan Blair, Marc Giglio, Kirstyna Baczynski, Gabriella Marcella and Alec Doherty.  Along side a selection of the original, gicclee print run.  All A3, All £15, All available to view and buy online here.
