More Publishers, whose previous projects included the "Sunday series" (with works by Walid Raad, Cory Arcangel, Claude Closky, Sylvie Fleury, Robert Barry, Pierre Bismuth, Dora Garcia, etc.) and "Hors série" (Mathieu Mercier, Yann Sérandour, Jochen Lempert, Joe Scanlan, Allen Ruppersberg, etc.) launched a new series called "Public Poster Program" at the beginning of 2016.
"Public Poster Program" is a one-year exhibition program consisting of twelve projects. Each month of the year an artist is invited to produce a large industrial screen-printed poster. Over the course of the year the posters will be on view in office-like metal and glass display cases hung in public areas.
On Sunday, MORE announced that the May poster would be produced by Jonathan Monk, who has previously contributed #11 in the "Sunday series", and three separate works as part of "Hors série". Monk's The Magnetism of Colour is a four-colour silkscreen print packaged with a 10 coloured magnets to hang the print on a metal board. The edition is signed and numbered on a adhesive label, glued on the back of the package of magnets. Once the work is installed the leftover of the package serves as a certificate.
The Magnetism of Colour is available from the publisher, here, for 240 €.
