We're pleased to announce that we'll be hosting The National Poster Retrospecticus at the Gallery this September, an exhibit featuring over 400 hand-printed posters by more than 100 of the most prominent poster designers in North America. The show includes heavy hitters like Aaron Draplin, Daniel Danger, Rob Jones, The Decoder Ring, and posters for bands like The Black Keys, Phish, Wilco and hundreds of others, on display for a limited time.
There will be two opening events for two separate showcases - the first on September 12th (6-10pm) and the second on September 19th (6-10pm). In addition to the posters lining the walls, a show poster designed by Tom Whalen will be available for purchase.
The National Poster Retrospecticus producer JP Boilard says they're stoked to follow up the success of their 2015 spring tour. “We’ve visited places like The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, NXNE, Noise Pop, and Adobe HQ. Each show was a blast to be a part of but we’re especially excited to be back in our new home here in Austin! We’re honored to team up with Mondo on our first show in town since we relocated to Texas one year ago.
"It’s going to be fun to fill the gallery not once but twice with posters! This is the first time we’ll see two completely different shows hung back to back in a space. We’ll be hosting two separate receptions in celebration of all of these rad posters!”
