Flick n Click Art



Exhibition

A Public Art Exhibition of Iconic Cinema Posters

Advertising

Artists from Blockbuster Shows

Co-curated by Jolanta Jagiello and Julia Dennis

18th May 2010 to 18th June 2010

Cinematic posters go back to advertising the earliest public showings of films inside movie theatres. Modern cinema posters feature illustrations of a scene or overlay images from several scenes, in a wide variety of artistic styles. Artists have been employed to produce original movie poster artwork from modern cult classics to vintage legends, such as Alien, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Calendar Girls, Edward Scissorhands, and Pulp Fiction.

The Flick n Click Art exhibition is inspired by the teaser poster - an early promotional film poster, containing a basic image or design without revealing too much information on the plot, and characters. The purpose of the Flick n Click Art exhibition is to incite awareness and generate hype, for a blockbuster art exhibition, artist or collection of artworks rather than a film. To include artists such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Cindy Sherman, David McKean, and Julian Opie.
