The Artist Poster Show

The Artist Poster Show opened a few Fridays ago (February 8th) at the Burnaby Art Gallery in British Columbia, and continues until April 7th.

The show, drawn primarily from the gallery's permanent collection, features exhibition posters by artists such as Rodney Graham, Guerrilla Girls, Laurel Woodcock, Bruce Nauman, Michael Drebert and Ian Wallace (pictured above), as well as Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Gilbert & George, Lawrence Weiner, N.E.Thing Co.,  Gordon Matta-Clark and many others. The exhibition includes a new commissioned series of twelve posters by Sonny Assu and a contemporary selection of artist posters from Vancouver artist-run centres like Artspeak, Or Gallery and Western Front.
