Screenadelica 2011

Screena
Fellows! I will be in attendance to this here exhibition-slash-selling event which takes place in Liverpool as part of the Liverpool Sound City festival.

19th, 20th, and 21st May from 3pm daily at 34 Slater Street (former International/Art Organisation Gallery) (see map here!).

THIS EVENT IS FREE TO ENTER

Here is some Official Screenadelica Blurb:

"Screenadelica is a gig poster exhibition, celebrating the art of the screen printed gig poster, held during Liverpool Sound City festival. Playing host to both UK and international artists, Liverpool shall see a wide variety of styles promoting the bands the artists love, inspired by the music they hear. With digital download taking over the music scene, the desire to still own something physical makes the screen printed poster all the more important, driving artists to create pieces of art for each show which encapsulates the music in their eyes. This then means that rather than one artist representing the bands sound, they get a whole range of interpretations of their music thru the screen printed gig poster."

Other artists in attendance include: Luke Drozd, We Three Club, Nick Rhodes, Tiny Little Horse, Michael Cowell, Horse, Paul Rafferty, Craig Robson, & John Biddle.

The gallery space will also have a bar with a specially curated line up of bands and visuals featuring from 8pm each evening, and there will also be live t-shirt printing taking place where you can take away a shirt-based souvenir of the event.

Bonus event!

This happens to be going on at the same time: Ghosts of Birds Gone - "Raising a creative army for conservation through a series of multimedia exhibitions that breathe artistic life back into extinct bird species, celebrating their diversity thru paintings & sculpture, talks & poetry, installations & live music."

As a fan of birds, I also sometimes like to look at pictures of birds, even extinct ones, so I'll probably check this out.

See you in Liverpool then, yeah?
