The music experience is currently largely in digital environments, anonymous and sterile. Only live performances guarantee the unique and authentic experience of music. High-quality posters in silkscreen are lasting memories, real gadgets, printed in a relatively low edition by hand. Since the 80s of the last century, gig poster communities have formed in Europe as well as in the United States.
Make sure to drop by The European Poster Explosion (EPEX) and check out some amazing silkscreen posters from around Europe. EPEX collaborates with and displays work of Poster-O-Rama, a travelling exhibition including over 50 designers. This exhibition will be displayed in GRID (Grafic Museum Groningen). In total there are more than 70 European designers collaborating including: VERA Art Division (NL), Toucan Tango (UK), Mara Piccione (NL), Handprinted Stuff (NL), Monostereo (ES), Jan Barceló (ES), Clockwork Pictures (IT), Spiegelsaal (GER), Lil Tuffy (USA/NL), Carlo Vivary (GER)
All posters are original pieces of art and created in collaboration with the musicians and concert halls. Most of them are for sale, so grab this unique chance to get a signed limited edition silkscreen of your favourite band or artist! The European Poster Explosion is an initiative by the VERA Artdivision & GRID
