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.
Gabriella Marcella graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2012. Her work includes a range of event posters, designs for Pitchfork and Urban Outfitters, as well as her own independent publishing. She also runs Risotto Studio, specializing in Risograph printing
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.
