press release

"Post No Bills" is an exhibition of (mostly recent) artist's poster works: i.e., works that either (literally) take the form of a poster, or works that adopt or approximate the language(s) and formats of posters. Given our ongoing social and political turmoil, it is perhaps not surprising that artists have increasingly returned to the polemical "space" of the poster as a vehicle for their ideas. Often democratically produced and distributed, poster works possess a sense of urgency that both amplifies and mirrors our present realities. "Post No Bills" is a cross-generational exhibition and brings together works by more than 50 international artists, many showing in New York for the first time. Available (free of charge) from the gallery will be a newly commissioned poster by Michael Smith.
