Straight for the art | Now Showing — reimagined movie posters
What did art shows do before the Internet? Back then, you had one brief shining moment, or month as the case may have been, to catch a great show at a gallery or museum before its collected works were lost to the ether. Nowadays, however, the tubes can pipe the visual riches to you in perpetuity.
Such is the case with “Now Showing: Exploring the Lost ‘Art’ of the Film Poster.” Curated by Wear It With Pride, the exhibition ran last year at the COSH Gallery in London and Vallery in Barcelona, and featured reinterpretations of classic and cult film posters by comics artists Nathan Fox, Tomer Hanuka, and 40 other illustrators and designers. From The Lost Boys to The Planet of the Apes, A Clockwork Orange to Soylent Green, The Birds to Blade Runner, Dr. No to Rear Window to Tampopo, there’s bound to be something to delight any lover of fine film and/or eye-melting art.
