Posters Fo' Sho'
21 May - 5 June 2011
Five Years, London

From pasted up street propaganda to modern billboard advertising, from lo-fi photocopies to screen-printed editions, some of the most creative visions come from the world of the poster, a tool to inform, manipulate, educate, inform and entice.

Posters Fo’ Sho’ explored the poster as both art-form and advert. At the invitation of Five Years members Mike Murphy & Kelly O'Connor, 38b asked artists, designers and makers to create a poster which served to both form the show's body of work as well as the tool with which to promote it.

The posters had to contain the title, location and dates of the exhibition, but participating artists were invited to do or say what they wished with all other creative content and interpretation...Fo’ Sho’
