Post No Bills at the Art Center South Florida

October 21st, 2006The ArtCenter/South Florida (ACSF) in Miami Beach opens the exhibition Post No Bills, A Rock Poster Show and presents Jesse Jackson in a free concert on the opening night. Post No Bills showcases the work of Leia Bell, Nick Butcher, Charlie Calderin, Mat Daly, Yannick Desranleau, Dan Grzeca, Dirk Fowler, Jeff Kleinsmith, Jesse LeDoux, Chloe Lum, Dan MacAdam, Jeff Matz, Dan McCarthy, Tara McPherson, Jay Ryan, John Solomine, Thomas Scott, Diana Sudyka, Kristen Thiele and Steve Walters. In the last 20 years, there has been an explosion of activity in the rock poster genre. The formally outmoded, traditional forms of printing, especially silkscreen and letterpress, have been revitalized. According to Thiele, who is curating the show and a poster artist, the rock poster culture never truly developed in Miami due to the small number of local and touring bands, a lack of a centralized area for the distribution and exhibition of posters and dearth of rock performance venues. With a growing rock scene and new performance locations emerging, this exhibition comes at a time when momentum is building for a thriving fan base in Miami. Post No Bills celebrates the art form by bringing more than 100 works by 18 artists from the United States and Canada. For more information, please call: 305.674.8278
