Think! The Poster Collective

Young People's Exhibition

Past

2 November 2016 to 29 January 2017

  • Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Think! The Poster Collective is a group exhibition of hand made posters created by young artists aged 16 - 22.

Inspired by the themes and techniques of our exhibition A World to Win: Posters of Protest and Revolution, each young artist developed their individual response during a week-long project exploring the Gallery, meeting artists, curators and designers and learning new printmaking skills led by artist Della Rees.

The result is a resounding endorsement of the creative talent of young people, their individualism and their thoughtful engagement with the world around them. The art works comment on current events including the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox and the media's relationship to society, while evoking a strong sense of community and an impression of the world as they would like it to be. 

Curated by the William Morris Gallery Young Curators Group 

Make your own statement at our free Letterpress Printing Workshop with Paekakariki Press on Saturday 21 January. This event is for young people aged 16 - 25.
